The dates for the Aquathon Series 2017 are as follows:
Wed 21 June
Wed 19 July
Wed 16 August
Please keep these dates free if at all possible as these races cannot happen without the hard work of our club members. I would love to see as many members as possible partaking the race of course, but we also do need a significant number of marshals for each race to ensure the race is run smoothly and, most importantly, safely.
I'll post closer to each race looking for marshals for that race so please keep your eyes on the forum.
However, what I'd really like now is if there is anyone interested in getting involved in the organisation of the races. Please feel free to reply here or contact me directly - or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The more people who understand what goes on behind the scenes to get these races up and running the better for everyone really!
Over the coming days I'll be updating the
and the race entries will hopefully be going live on the Triathlon Ireland website.
As many of you know, Ronan Guilfoyle has kindly been doing the timing for the Aquathon races for years. Ronan volunteered his free time without being a club member and the club as a whole owes him a huge debt of gratitude. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say he'll be missed!
This means that I will be looking for a volunteer or, ideally, a couple of volunteers to help out with the race timing. It's pretty straightforward, I'd just need to go through how it works with you ahead of time. You don't need to be overly computer-literate, if you can use Microsoft Excel to any degree you'll be able to do it. The more people we have trained up in how to use it, the less often you'll be asked to do it!
