The 2012 triathlon racing season has come to an end and it’s now time to start thinking about the 2013 racing season.
Athlone Triathlon Club have once again had a great year, with highlights including the rapid growth of new members to the club, the hosting of the Lough Ree Monster Triathlon last June in Portrunny, members participating in TriAthlone and other events, and watching club members take part in half-ironmen and full ironmen competitions.
The club’s aim for 2013 is to encourage as many people as possible to get involved with the club, either as individual triathlon participants or as part of relay teams.
The club is lucky to have access to both the Regional Sports Centre and AIT, providing some of the best training facilities and coaches in the Midlands. Swimming training is currently taking place on Tuesday nights in the Sports Centre from 9.15-10pm. Sessions are broken down into seven-week blocks and the next block is due to start on November 6. Places on these sessions fill up quickly so booking is always advised.
Running sessions are held at AIT’s running track from 7.30-9pm all year.
If you are interested in joining Athlone Triathlon Club come along to any training session and check things out for yourself. Alternatively log on to www.athlonetriathlonclub.com and feel free to contact any of the club members.
