The 'Get Men Moving' Programme

Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon - Swim Exit

Triathlon Ireland are pleased to announce the launch of a pilot project offering our triathlon clubs a grant to deliver a 'Get Men Moving' programme.

'Get Men Moving' is aimed at men aged 35 and over who are interested in learning a new sport or returning to sport after some time away. Running a programme is a great opportunity to introduce new members to our community, to grow your club and most importantly - to 'Get Men Moving'! 

Clubs can apply for grants of up to €500 to support their six week programme. This will help cover the cost of;

  • Venue hire for the duration of the programme and the event

  • Coaching for the duration of the programme
