Trilogy Triathlon Club Laois gearing up for annual event

The 10th annual Tri Laois organised by the local Trilogy Triathlon Club is set to take place this weekend.

The Tri Laois will take place on Saturday April 6 with registration at 8am at Portlaoise Leisure Centre.

There are two options for the athletes – the Olympic sprint distance of a 750m swim, a 19.5km cycle and a 5km run or the Try-a-Tri of a shorter 400m swim and the same distance cycle and run.

The race is once again sponsored by Joe Mallon Motors, who last year led the way in a lead car and had a prominent display of very colourful Renault Cars at the finish line.

The event is already sold out with 350 competitors set to take part.

Participants will receive a goodie bag including a Race T-Shirt and Finishers Medal.

Athletes came from all over the country for the event which is incredibly popular and always draws a high number of spectators.

We will be there on the day taking pictures of the event, so if you see us, be sure to stop and get a photo.
