Wick­low triath­letes show­ing good form

Bray People - - Sport -

WICK­LOW TRIATH­LETES took three of the top ten spots in the sec­ond of the ‘Dirty Triathlon Se­ries’.

Bjorn Lud­wig took sec­ond place, Andy Ka­vanagh took sixth place, fol­lowed closely by Cian McGrath.

Duathlon is a two sport event, which com­bines run­ning and cycling. The ath­letes started with a 3.5km run fol­lowed by a 20km cy­cle fol­lowed by an­other 3.5km run. The races are used by triath- letes for train­ing at this time of year when the wa­ter tem­per­a­ture for the full triathlon event, is not warm enough yet.

The team above are aim­ing to win the team event of the Ir­ish Premier League Triathlon Se­ries for 2009 and this re­sult shows that their train­ing is all go­ing to plan.

Mean­while the Wick­low Club have just launched the Ampib­ian King Aquathon Se­ries for 2009. This in­volves, swim­ming and then run­ning and all three races will take place on Bray Seafront on the evening of Wed­nes­day, June 17, Wed­nes­day, July 22 and Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 19.

En­try will be avail­able on­line through Ac­tive Europe and will be open­ing in the com­ing weeks.

The race se­ries proved to be very pop­u­lar in 2008, with Am­phib­ian King of Bray pro­vid­ing us with some ex­cel­lent prizes, 2009 will be even big­ger and bet­ter.
