Triathlon Update – Milton Keys Qualifiers and more!

2019 Winter Triathlon Series and Championships Update

There has been fantastic turnout at the 4 triathlons hosted by branches across N.I this year.

Competitors and their supporters have had opportunity to see some of the most beautiful parts of N.I travelling to triathlons held in: Downpatrick (East Down), Newtownards (North Down), Ballymoney (Route Hunt) and Omagh (Seskinore).

The success of the NI Triathlon/Tetrathlon series lies in the effort and commitment put in by the hosting branches to run friendly and well-coordinated events. Organising triathlon/tetrathlon events is not something that can be done in isolation and it all works because of the willingness of people to step up and help where needed… in tetrathlon, parents are not left standing on the side lines for long! Thank-you everyone for your support so farJ
