Stiff compe

Bray People - - PICTURES -

THE largest num­ber of par­tic­i­pants yet turned out for the 16th King of Grey­stones Triathlon last Sun­day.

Over 360 com­peti­tors from Ire­land and be­yond lined up for this char­ity triathlon in aid of The Gavin Glynn Foun­da­tion and found them­selves at the heart of a won­der­ful, com­mu­nity-run event set in beau­ti­ful scenery.

Or­gan­is­ers have said that the event was

a huge suc­cess and have sent a heart­felt ‘ thank you’ to all the 80 vol­un­teers who helped the triathlon run so smoothly. They have also ex­tended spe­cial thanks to race di­rec­tor Adam Kelly, Grey­stones Mu­nic­i­pal District, An Garda Siochána, Grey­stones Coast Guard, Or­der of Malta and Po­sei­don Life­sav­ing Club for keep­ing ev­ery­one safe on the course.

Thanks to the gen­eros­ity of cor­po­rate spon­sors Verde En­vi­ron­men­tal, Glene­gry, Tesco Ire­land, Gold­, East Coast FM, O’Gor­man Prop­er­ties and Lit­tle Gi­ants Crèche, the costs of run­ning the event were cov­ered and so every en­try free was a 100 per cent do­na­tion to The Gavin Glynn Foun­da­tion.

Al­though still on a high from Sun­day’s fan­tas­tic race, or­gan­is­ers are al­ready be­gin­ning to make plans for 2018.
