Last weekend members of the Ballyshannon Triathlon Club were ina ction in the MSCtri Club at Lough Cutra Triathlon in Gort, Co Galway this Sunday.

This race with almost 400 competitors is part of Triathlon Ireland’s National Series and we were delighted with Julie who took first in the F45-49 category with Eleanor 3rd and Ann 4th in the F50-54 category. Pamela had an excellent debut Olympic Tri with a time of 3:16. This distance race involves a 1.5k swim, 40k bike & 10k run.

Next weekend we have a number of athletes competing in the James McManus Memorial Triathlon in Swanlinbar, Co. Cavan, race won by our club man, Eoin McManus from Ballyshannon last year. We also have members swimming in the Metalman Swim Series race at Rosses Point, Sligo on Saturday morning so hopefully we’ll have some results & photos next week also.

The triathlon season is now underway until the end of September so we hope to be able to keep a steady flow of results coming in.
