Message From the New Club Chairman: Ivan Kelleher

Hi All,

A big thanks to all on the 2011 committees and those who marshalled and helped out with our 2 races and other club activities in 2011. Lots of hard work was done by the outgoing club committee which sets us up for a busy 2012.

Highlights of 2011:

– Cork Tri Club was represented at almost every Triathlon Ireland race with members regularly winning and placing.

– 19 of our members completed Iron distance triathlons

– The Lost Sheep was voted the Triathlon Ireland Race of the Year

– Joyce Wolfe named the Triathlon Ireland Triathlete of the Year

Thanks also to those who have volunteered to be on the 2012 committees and there are a few changes on the committees as you would expect
(check out who is doing what for 2012 on the Cork Tri Club website). We still need a Chief Marshal and a Race Administrator for the Lost Sheep Half Iron triathlon – this is an iconic race which has just won TI race of the year and will take place next September in the beautiful Kenmare. Please email if you want to get involved.

On the calendar for the next few months (planned but not promised)!
