As National series coordinators we will post up every month what NS races are coming up and other local events which might benefit everybody.
If you are not sure what the National Series is all about please click on the MEMBERS AREA on the top bar of the website and select National series and it will give you all the info you will need.
It is important to repeat that the top 6 points earners make up our score but EVERY point a Piranha scores matters. Every time a Piranha races they will push other club members points lower by finishing ahead of them no matter where you are placed………so this years motto is RACE FOR EVERY PLACE !
13th May PULSE AQUATHON (run by Pulse TC at Bull wall) this is the National Champs and there are a number of different distances
Sea might still be a little cold for some but as its local its easy to get to and race.
20th May CARLOW SPRINT TRIATHLON. The First National Series race of the year. A full Piranha briefing of the race will be issued by the NS committee next week with details of the course, who’s racing etc. Piranha will be there in numbers
21st May (Monday) HOWTH AQUATHON The first of 3 Aquathons run in howth by a local group.( also 11th June & 9th July) Always well attended by Piranha. 2 distances available Long course is 1000m Swim and 7.4km run and the short course is 500m swim and 3.7 km run. If you didn’t get to race Carlow this could be a good way to start your season.
26th & 27th May LOUGH CUTRA Lough Cutra has many different distances running over the weekend with Piranha’s entered in the sprint race and 70.3 distance on Saturday. Also on Saturday at 3pm is the SPRINT RELAY CHAMPS which we are aiming to win. We will have entered 3 teams so if you are about after your race or racing the Olympic on Sunday morning why not come along and support the teams. The Sprint relay team is 4 people ( 2 male/ 2 female) each team member will race the following 250m swim- 5km bike – 1500m run and then tag the next team member. It should be great to watch! On Sunday we have the OLYMPIC race which is NAtional Series and if you are serious about your NS standings this is a must do race so you can bank a Olympic distance Result and bank it early as you dont what to be chasing one later in the season when it gets busy.
That’s MAY………by the end of it lets hope we have seen loads of Piranha’s out there racing. We spend a massive amount of time training so lets make sure we get out there and race. It does not matter where you finish as long as you give it your best. Its good to challenge yourself and all of these races are exciting, generally well run and will also have loads of experienced Piranha’s there to help.
