The Landers Tralee tri kingdom come Triathlon Club to hold major event in Fenit this August.
Tralee Triathlon club and Fenit Development Association are looking forward to welcoming you to one of Ireland’s most scenic Triathlons on August bank holiday weekend.
Tralee Triathlon Club has revamped its annual summer triathlon which will be even bigger and better than before and they are now calling on all triathletes to sign up for one of Kerry’s best triathlons this year.
The sprint triathlon is a 750m swim, a 20km cycle and a 5km run, all within the environs of Fenit and it is ideal for all athletes no matter what their ability.
Tralee Triathlon Club is one of the fastest growing clubs in Kerry, and with almost 200 members in the club alone, this is going to a major event in The Kingdom.
Participants will travel from outside the county to take part in the Landers-sponsored Tri Kingdom Come and up to 400 athletes are expected to join the race on the day.
This event is also a family fun day out in Fenit and everyone is invited to come along and be spectators or join in the summer event. Tralee Triathlon Club have also joined up with Fenit Development Association and Landers Outdoor World to host the event.
Club will also be launching their very own training programme to get
participants ready for the event and they welcome new members.
And for those who just want to dip their toes in the world of triathlon there will also be a mini triathlon which incorporates a 250m swim, a 8km cycle, and a 2.5km run.
Start time is estimated to be between 11.00 and 12.00. The swim will be tide assisted again this year ensuring that everyone achieves a great time. Last year we had very happy swimmers as PB’s were smashed by many!
We have always had closed roads for the duration of the event and we anticipate having closed roads again this year.
The Sprint comprises of a 750 m swim, 20 km cycle and 5 km run, all taking place along the stunning Wild Atlantic Way. This is a nice flat course and perfect for athletes trying to better their times or beginners looking for an easy course for their first triathlon!
There is also a sprint relay option – a brilliant way to introduce new people to the world of Triathlon or do it as a workplace challenge -just form a team to compete.
The Try a Tri distance – the perfect option for beginners to the sport will be a 250 m swim, an 8 km cycle and a 2.5 km run.
