The Club Session's

We train every Tuesday evening from 7-9pm in Backballer in Smithstown 

We are very grateful to Noel for helping us with this space to train, helping to keep costs very very low and the enthusiasm high. We are joined by friends from other clubs, All are welcome 🙂 we do ask though that all take out a " training license " from Triathlon Ireland and Join GoTri in the clubs section.

There is NO cost for the sessions and the club fee will include the Training time trial league and other club events later in the year.

What do you need to take part in the sessions ?

a turbo - a bike - a towel - a drink - and a willingness to learn.

Do we only cycle ? 

no we also focus on a lot of mobility work after the session, releasing the hips, instructed learning on how to stretch areas specific to cycling and triathlon

A few of the " triathletes" will run off the bike for 10-15mins depending

All levels - means all levels welcome





Socially distance training session :

as Naas Duathalon was to take place this weekend but has been cancelled, some of us are going to have a training session Sunday morning, meeting at the Wells Church at 9.20.
The plan is 3km run, either 24.7km or 15km cycle and finish off with 3km run.
This is a training session, max numbers of 15, rules of the road and Covid-19 apply. This is a fun, training session

Well done to all for organizing and making this happen. It takes members to make a club great so great going folks.

a few more photos etc in the Club training forum.

Stay safe in these times, together we push each other forward

GoTri Triathlon Club - Brick session One

Sat 28th Gotri TT course 25km loop

Plan is to include 7km run off


*1 x 25km loop to warm up ( as a group or pairs depending )

*1 x effort at set hr/power

50km total

Road or TT bikes

Folks can tag team if they want to maybe ride it as pair

The run off will be easy

coaches report : 

We had 3 lads for the training session on the 28th - We rode the first lap as a group and then Kieran did his run off while Neil and Stephan did a second lap.

post this lap - Stephan did a short run off

Notes : re-gaining comfort and remembering to train in the tt position // adding short runs off long bikes -10mins - with fast feet focus

Overall - it was great to get back out on the course, we got lucky with the weather, it was cold but no rain and the wind was ok. always great to train with a group, hopefully a few more will join us for the next Brick session.

Date of next session to be confirmed asap

As always sessions are open to all members and friends, you can come to 3 training sessions before taking out your licence and joining the club. Its very important that all members join Triathlon Ireland. 2020 membership will be open soon to renew

The Training situation

The club house closed at the end of January 2019 due to lack of club funding from across the 3 clubs. GoTri established Clubrothaiochta, Shannon Masters and GoTri racing team & Adventure team. Un-fortunately the model we chose didn't return enough funds to run a clubhouse but not from the lack of trying from all involved. We live, we learn & we move on.

The training situation

Time to reboot for season 2020

  • Monday night sessions
  • Saturday training sessions
  • Keep an eye on the training facebook pages and forums

The GoTri clubhouse :

Stephan better know as STL has been putting together the GoTri clubhouse over the last 5 years. Ever changing and always developing to help all levels of club member, you would be surprised at how much the club can offer to you.

A lot of people just think the clubhouse is for mad triathletes, or those crazy folks who run up mountains or who risk their lives pedaling on the roads !! it is not, we offer classes for all ages, levels and outlooks. A lot of our members dont even do triathlons 🙂 they just want to challenge themselves, be surrounded by great coaches and others who want to take a better step forward.

We offer club members classes in TRX, SPIN, Kettlebells, Circuits, Turbo training, Strength and conditioning and much more !

How to get involved?

Just rock up to a class that sceduled or email us on

We have great coaches doing great things :
