The Edge Sports Blackwater Triathlon 2013 – Early Bird Special!!!

The Edge Sports Blackwater Triathlon will take place in Fermoy on Saturday 17th August. This is the 6th year of the event which is hosted by the local Blackwater Triathlon Club.  The triathlon is a sprint triathlon, making it a great race for those taking part in their first race.

On-line registration is through the Triathlon Ireland website and you can follow the links from the Blackwater Tri Club page to register.

The race has gone from strength to strength over the last number of years, much of this is due to the huge support the race gets from the local community – both individuals and businesses to which the club are very thankful. This support and the warm welcome Fermoy offers to those travelling to the race has been acknowledged by participants in the past. We’re looking forward to another very successful event this year. The Blackwater Triathlon Club is hoping that this years race will be even more popular with the locals and are encouraging anyone who would like to give the triathlon a go to contact the club and come along to any of our training sessions. New members are always welcome and the club caters for those who have never done a triathlon before to those who are more experienced. Anyone can complete a triathlon so if you are interested in giving it a go contact Niamh on 087-9814035.
