The TT series is back!

As you probably know, this year we have teamed up with our friends at Pulse and Piranha Triathlon Clubs to run a joint 3-way TT series to prepare for the season ahead.

The series will consist of two 20k and one 40k TT races on:

  • Sunday March 11th (20km)
  • Sunday March 25th (20km)
  • Sunday April 29th (40km – distance TBC)

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to enter, regardless of experience level.

How to Enter

If you are going to attend you need to confirm by booking a (free) ticket through the Member Zonewww.belparktri.ie/member-zone/

Things to note

  • On the day, you will also need your TI card for registration.
  • This is not a race and is open to all levels. The only requirements are a road worthy bike and a helmet.
  • This year, we are putting extra focus on helping novice cyclists and new members for the first race, so please do come along and give it a try. Even if you have done the first one and then completed some races, you will be able to see how much you have improved over the summer.
  • Each person will set off at timed intervals to avoid congestion and drafting… at the end you will receive your time.
  • You’re racing yourself so no need to worry about what level you are at currently. It’s all about finding where you are and improving from there.
  • There will be plenty of support and all levels of cyclist will be there giving it a go, so don’t feel that you may not be ready – there’s no time like the present!

If you can’t enter but are able to marshal, we will need a few volunteers to help out as well. Please get in touch to let us know: training@belparktri.ie.

Hope to see you all there,
Conal and Ian
Training officers
