Every year the Limerick Triathlon Club collaborates with Clare Sports Partnership and our friends in West Clare Tri Club and the residents of Carrigaholt to organise a Junior race the day after the Olympic Hell of the West Triathlon. This year 2016, for safety purposes we have opted to turn the whole event into an “AQUATHON” which takes the form of a Splash or Swim followed by runs of varying distances depending on the ages of the participants.
Carrigaholt is less than 10 mins from Kilkee; it is a picturesque town, with quiet roads and a very safe beach. We invite you all to join us, bring the kids, let them part-take or just watch.
CHILDREN WILL NOT NEED TI MEMBERSHIP OR LICENCE TO TAKE PART. This is thanks to the Clare Sports Partnership, this is a growing event and we appreciate their support!
Registration will be available on Friday night the 24th of June in the Kilkee Bay Hotel from 18.30-21.30 or people can register on the day in Carrigaholt 11.30 – 1pm.
Some limited parking in the field beside the beach: This car park will be closed off with no access in or out from 12:30-16:00. Otherwise please Park on the Cross road in the Village or alternatively up along the hill in the village and walk back down towards the pier and beach area. Please keep the main road alongside the field near the beach/pier parking free as we need this space to run a SAFE race, as the kids will be running out along this road towards kilkee then right towards Querrin/Doonaha and back again!
We can always do with marshals and helping hands – email firstname.lastname@example.org or call eamonn direct on 086-8548696
Please keep a close eye on the day’s proceedings and times to make sure your child is present for their race start. Races later in the day may start at earlier times depending on how the day is progressing and the numbers in attendance.
