The horse shoe bay of Kilkee, Co. Clare was choppy and windy, but that did not put off over 900 athletes all taking on the challenge of Kilkee Hell of the West 2013. This being the 29th year of this race for the Limerick Triathlon Club – they pulled out all the stops. There were [...]

Each long journey begins with the first step and so as I entered Ironman Austria in Klagenfurt in August 2011. I did not really believe I would finish. Completing the Dublin City Marathon on four weeks top up running after the Galway 70.3 seemed logical. Then do Christmas fun runs, but most of all keep [...]
After a 3rd attempt at Ironman in Wales last weekend I finally feel that I have got a result which reflects the effort and sacrifice that goes into preparing for this huge challenge. Apart from the usual long hours of training, strict nutrition, flawless equipment and psychological interventions that go into making a successful race [...]
By Sinead Walsh (Club Secretary) After completing my first Half Iron distance event in May, I barely had my bike unpacked when entries opened for the Lost Sheep in Kenmare.

My parents and I left Limerick at 10:30 on Saturday morning and arrived at registration at noon, which was an easy process. I watched the race briefing on tv and received my goody bag, which was full of unfamiliar [...]
So everyone had said enjoy the journey, the hard bit is getting to the start line fit & injury free. I did have one bout of injury but thanks to Emlyn Maher’s sports massage I kept everything in working order for race day. Insanely an ironman event sells out close to 12 months in advance [...]
On July 1st 2012, over 2000 athletes descended on the waters in Klagenfurt, Austria. For the majority from Limerick – this was to be our first Ironman. Some had already done this distance and were a great help to us rookies. But Ironman throws up obstacles no one expects and for the first time in [...]
My First Ironman report, I finished it (the race, I mean!). It’s a bit epic so a cup of coffee may be necessary. I apologise in advance if anyone falls asleep into their hot beverage amidst the waffle ? Challenge Roth, July 10 2011. MCOS, Limerick Tri Club #940 The Training It encompassed 8 solid [...]
