Portumna Hosts First Triathlon


from tthe Sign Out youth Company Portumna was a hive of activity last Saturday, where athletes gathered from 8am in glorious sunshine, to compete in the 25.5 Series Sprint Triathlon organised by RunIreland – 500m swim in Lough Derg, 20km cycle taking in Gortunumera, Killeen and Ballyshrule and 5km run through the forest park.

It was a very successful and enjoyable event both for competitors, volunteers and spectators. The Shannon Oaks Hotel proved a perfect venue for registration and light refreshments. Portumna Sign Out Youth Company, organisers of the marshaling on the day, would like to thank all those who volunteered and ably directed and encouraged the athletes along the routes. Portumna proved a perfect setting for the Triathlon and it would be lovely to see it held here again with more local teams and individuals taking part. Pictures can be viewed on www.sebfitness.com
