Letterkenny Triathlon

Letterkenny’s 24/7 Triathlon Club held its annual race in the scenic venue of Gartan Lake on Saturday.

This year an Olympic race was added alongside the Sprint distance with 158 competitors arriving at the Gartan Outdoor Education Centre boat house to take part in their chosen distance. The rain held off until the run part of the Olympic distance which saw club member Sean McFadden claim first place overall.

Margaret Kelly was first female in this race, having only just raced a half ironman distance seven days previously! All club members were happy with their times and are glad that the training is paying dividends.

In the Sprint race Rhodri Jones and Anne Paul from Triangle Triathlon Club took 1st place with Peter O'Donnell and Orlaith Fogarty being first male and female home for the club. It was great to see so many new members enjoy and complete their first or second triathlon, with some great performances by individuals.

The club would once again like to thank Gartan Outdoor Education Centre for letting us host the race and use their facilities, to Voodoo Bar for sponsoring the event and a big thank you to all marshals and helpers who give up their time to help the event run smoothly and safely.
