BLACKWATER TRIATHLON CLUB
The annual Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon event took place on the weekend of May 26th and 27th.
Once again, a large contingent from the Blackwater Triathlon Club travelled to Gort in Co Galway to take part in some of the 22 races that took place over the course of the weekend.
These range from the Half Ironman distance Gauntlet with a 1900 Metre swim, a 96 km cycle and a 21 km run, to a race for 8-10 year olds with a 100km swim, a 4km cycle and an 800 metre run, with a huge variety of relay and solo options in between.
In total The Blackwater Triathlon Club had 18 members racing at the weekend, with some of them doing multiple events. This year there were also three swimming only events added to the calendar, a mile swim, a 2.5km swim and a 5km swim.
There was something there for every level of triathlete, whether absolute beginner or grizzled veteran and it’s an ideal opportunity for Triathlon stars of today and the future to compete.
