July Newsletter Update

Hi, a quick members update for July just to remind you of a few things coming up.

Little Bo Peep Closing Soon!
So after a slow start the entries for the Little Bo Peep have been flooding in of late. Anybody who is still looking for an entry get in quick as there are limited places available and closing date for entries is July 31st. See here for details. For those who have already entered the Race Briefing has now been uploaded. Don’t forget if you are relying on a One Day License this must be purchased in advance from Triathlon Ireland.

Once again we are giving a free entry to any fully paid up member of Kenmare Tri Club (this also includes relay teams if one of the team is a member ) However this year we require all member to use the on line booking system and PAY in advance. Your entry will be refunded in full AFTER the event to insure you have met the agreed requirements ie Two marshals on the day . This also makes the managing of the entries much easier on the club .Cost of entries are Single €60 Relay €99. Sinead Ni Neill is the race director this year and all names of marshals must go through her.

Club Gear
The latest club gear has arrived in time this year and we will be updating the site with full details shortly. Gear that we now have includes bib shorts, cycle tops, vests, tri suits, rain jacket and cycle jackets. These will be available for sale to members at 50% off making them the best value gear around!

Training is well underway and the Swims on Wed & Fri evening at 6:15 in Star Outdoors have been the suprise hit of the summer. Running (long) is still leaving from the Pier every Tuesday at 5:45PM. Running will also be starting back up on Sunday morning from the Pier at 10AM. Cycling has become a bit ad-hoc but most longer cycles are being posted to the website. If you would like to ask about any training that may be coming up don’t hesitate to contact us on info@kenmaretri.com (or even suggest some and gather a crowd).

Bits and Bobs

Finally a huge congratulations to Lisa & Ellen who completed the Ironman Austria in July with ease! Well done and no doubt the first of many 🙂

Also the best of luck to two others, Colm & Jim who are both going off to become Ironmen themselves (or a multi-Ironman in Colm’s case) in the coming weeks.

We do want your feedback on the club and events. What works for you, what doesn’t and what you might like to see added or to get help with. Contact info@kenmaretri.com will any and all thoughts, comments and suggestions.
