A special message from the Phoenix Park Duathlon Series  race committee: we’d like to thank all our members for supporting the Phoenix Park Duathlon Series. Over 3 dates in April, June and July we hosted over 800 adults and 120 juniors. Highlights include hosting the final National Series race of the duathlon season, as well as the popular junior races. Feedback has been very positive from competitors, TI, OPW and Gardaí.  It wouldn’t have been possible without the help of over 100 club members. The race series is critical for the growth of the club – in terms of finances and promoting participation at all levels of the sport. Thank you. Read about the July race here.
