CTC’s social committee said the open night was a great opportunity for anyone interested in the club or the sport to find out more.

“The event will be extremely informative, whether you are just thinking of starting triathlon, are new to the club, or are at a more competitive level, we have something for you,” 

Details about the typical training schedule, social and events calendar, as well as insights from CTC members on their own experiences in the club will all form part of the evening.

There will also be a question-and-answer session at the end of the meeting to answer any queries from the audience.

For anyone thinking about getting involved in triathlon racing this year, the social committee said it would be of benefit to attend.

“The club has a wealth of experience and knowledge with a wide variety of levels and abilities among our members. If you want to do a triathlon this year, I think it’s a good idea to check out this event.” CTC organises a sprint triathlon, King of the Hill, every summer. The sell-out event is held in Kinsale and is centred around Dock Beach.

Anyone interested in the open night can register in advance on Eventbrite with the option to attend in person or online.
