Crooked Lake Sprint – 09/06/2012

Given the lack of up-to-date race reports on the website I have had a rush of blood to the fingers. Good news, it was a sprint so less scope for waffle!! June 9th saw the Crooked Lake triathlon take place in Camlough just outside Newry. The first plus to this race is that it started […]

Challenge Barcelona Half – 27/05/2012

In the somewhat challenging conditions that was Galway last year, I remember seeing Maeve Cloke wrapped up for the elements in her role as supporter, and thinking  how much smarter she was to have done Barcelona for her HIM.  Then of course once the swim was cut short in Galway, I knew that there would […]

Tri Athy 2008

The weather made all the difference ! At 8am, arriving at registration, the sun was already beaming down, putting everyone in great form and helping pre race nerves.
