Entries are now open ! Entries are now open for the DublinTri Series at www.runireland.com . The first Triathlon is in Kilcock on Saturday the 23rd of May, with Skerries four weeks later on the 21st of June.
DublinTri – Kilcock
Kilcock which hosted the European Canoe Championships in 2003 will be a sub-sprint distance triathlon with a 500m open water swim, 20km cycle and 5km run. The cycle will be on closed roads between Kilcock and Maynooth. The run will be 100% on trails along the Royal Canal bank. As well as the main triathlon there will also be a draft-legal triathlon, which is for competitors looking to step up to the Irish development Squad and racing International or for people just looking to race under the draft-legal format (No minimum standards are required).
DublinTri – Skerries
The Skerries Triathlon is back (750m, 20km, 5km). In 2004 Skerries was the largest Triathlon ever held in Ireland and in 2003 it was the Irish Sprint Distance Triathlon Championships. The sea swim will lead into the cycle route used for the RAS’s final day. It takes in the ‘Black Hills’ up to Ardgillan Castle and the ‘Man of War’ climb, so the cycle is were the race will be won and lost. The run will follow the beach front path. Similar to Kilcock, before the main triathlon there will be a draft-legal triathlon.
