All news : GoTri Club notes : A winter wonderland with met Eireann issuing a yellow warning and Daddy an Nollaig dropping some white snow for the kiddies meant a bad weekend of training for many. The “BRAVE “ if we can say that still got some miles in on the road, some took out MTb bikes ( a beautiful image from Ballyhoura being shared on social media platforms ) while other hit Ul Gym and Shannon Leisure Center to knock out sessions to keep the GoTri Strava club busy.

Bike update : 

we will reschedule the hill climb – and revert back to you with dates as soon as possible for your diaries. Unfortunately the weather forced us to cancel our first hill climb of the 2020 season. We will look to future dates but with a push coming towards duathlons a lot of weekends are already ear marked with racing. ( for training hitouts )

Run update :

Well done to all who ran the Irish cross country championships – notable mentions to Rory sexton and David Richardson and our friends at Ennis track and limerick clubs. ( if you took part and we missed it let us know ) 
 The topic of running off the Xmas excess is hot on many lips and there are plenty of options. From Kilkee to west limerick within driving range. Local runs include : Newmarket on fergus Turkey Trott on st.Stephen’s day and the annual St.Stephens day run in Caherdavin.
Brian Sheedy in helping out with the Turkey Trot and said “its a great family day out”  no matter how you go, fast or slow just go ….. GoTri 🙂
Ironman News : we have athletes planning their lives from cork to Italy. A few are thinking about Lanza and Portugal. Keep us posted. Domestically The hardman looks like an epic event if anyone is thinking of that let us know and maybe we can head down for a training day/weekend. 
If your planning on taking part in any races let us know and try to encourage others to take it on as well. Here’s to 2020
