High performance training events for Winter 2017

Building on the superseries specific training events organised in Summer 2017, Belpark Triathlon Club have now set up a High Performance Training group. This is currently being co-ordinated Ellen Murphy/Ben Malone to assist members who are aiming to compete in draft legal race series, podium at national championship/national series events, or represent Belpark at club relays at National and European club level.

Based on 2016 & 2017 results, Belpark members have been invited to a Whatsapp group for advance notification of upcoming training events and for group members to organise informal training sessions with athletes of similar abilities. We are pleased to add other athletes who meet the above mentioned criteria and we also welcome club members who have a strong level of performance/background in one or more of the three sports.

The following training events have so far been organised for Winter 2017:
