Once again this year the junior committee of Wicklow Tri Club are hosting an open triathlon for juniors aged 8 - 15 years of age. You might have seen Ciara's post mentioning the 21 juniors who raced in blue last weekend which is a sign of how strong the junior club is right now. Membership is booming and the talent is sometimes hard to believe with some of the best juniors in the country coming from our club!
We are politely asking for as many volunteers who can offer to help on the day including registration on Saturday 24th. This is a triathlon with an open water swim so while we have Irish Coast Guard support we will need kayak pilots and wetsuit clad marshals. We need to marshal the swim exit & transition, bike mount, bike course (with Garda support), bike dismount and then the run course and finish area.
If you can help out please copy the lists below and paste them into a new post with your name added.
THIS IS AN OPEN RACE! The focus is on participation and inclusion and we target entries from inside and outside the triathlon community. If you have kid, nephew, niece, neighbour or know anybody who you think might like a fun challenge then get them on the entry list! The goodies are always more valuable than the entry so a no brainer! Entry is via the TI website with loads of info on the link below and we will have one day licenses on the day for infrequent or first time participants. Link to race Information
Many thanks if you can volunteer on any of these lists, Garry
Could be touch and go for you! The splash and dash for under 8's is at 13:00 and the first race wave is off at 13:30. Expect to have all waves complete in about 90 mins or so and results/presentations at about 16:00
Would be great to see you even for a while!
