Thank you for considering to join our club.  Here at Kenmare Tri Club you can choose to dabble in the sport by focusing on one sport as part of a relay team or you can decide to train for your first  triathlon.  We focus on having fun, meeting up on a regular basis and doing as much or as little training as you wish.

So if getting out in the fresh air or water, feeling healthier, coupled with some excitement along with like minded people sounds good then read on to see what the benefits of joining our club can do for you.

What Does Membership Get Me:

  • Scheduled training sessions such as cycle turbo training, weekly group runs, twice weekly open water swimming sessions with changing facilities and hot showers ( April – Sep)& weekly group cycles.
  • Subsidised professional coaching sessions in all three disciplines.
  • Access to club equipment (eg. cycle turbo trainers )
  • Email notification of events, event opening dates, non-scheduled training sessions, club away
  • Heavily subsidised club gear. (eg. tri suits, cycling jackets & hoodies)
  • Included in 2012 membership is the welcome pack consisting of T-shirt,water bottle, woolly hat and swim cap (subject to availability)
  • As a club member you are required to help out with the running of our own event, “The Little Bo Peep” Triathlon which is held around the beginning of August every year.  If you would like to compete in the event or are unable to help out during the day then the club requires you to find a friend or relative to take your place.  The success of this event is what enables the club to operate and make the benefits of being a member so attractive.

If you have any questions / queries regarding membership please feel free to email and we will endeavor to answer them for you.
