2016 Reviewed - Sprint National Champs

Two Provinces Warm Up

The Two Provinces Triathlon in Lanesborough, Co. Longford was the scene of the 2016 Sprint Distance National Championships and it served up one of the fastest and most exciting races of the summer.

With the race hosting the third round of the 2016 Super Series, Two Provinces took on double importance for Category One athletes - as additional points were up for grabs to the top men and women in each of the draft legal races.

The non-drafting athletes meanwhile contested gold, silver and bronze medals in each age group (as well as fighting for points in the National Series) and looking through the winners of both fields, the country's top athletes came out in force.
