Banner Duathlon 2020

This event will not go ahead in 2020. We are in talks about a new event for the club but all details have yet to be finalized. The Banner will return – we hope in 2021 as a Triathlon Ireland sanctioned event.

We will be running regular “brick” sessions throughout the spring and summer months to help us train towards other local events.

Keep an eye on our website and we will keep you updated as we go

Committee 2020

Banner Duathlon 2019 :


Update on the Banner Duathlon :


The committee have decided that in 2019 the Duathlon will not now go ahead. We HOPE that in 2020 we can put on another Triathlon Ireland event but for 2019 we have taken the decision to focus on other ideas and areas within the GoTri racing team club.

We have really enjoyed running this event, especially the children’s events over the years and we must say a special THANK YOU to all who have helped to make it happen,our race directors and marshals, our sponsors and of course you the athletes.

In the famous words of Arnold – WE WILL BE BACK

A big point to note from last year is that there is no standard distance event this year. We have introduced a new event in the Du-a-Duathlon format where we hope to encourage as many first time athletes to take on the duathlon challenge.

Every great journey started with a single step.
