Bray Junior Aquathon 19th July 2017

Back by popular demand we are delighted to announce that we will once again run a junior aquathon on the same day as our senior Bray aquathon, July 19th.

This is on the same course and at the same venue as our races last year,  the scenic and historic promenade in Bray, Co Wicklow.  These aquathons both senior and junior are really popular for the super course with a sheltered swim along the beach in Bray and then a nice flat run along the promenade.  The hospitality is legendary also with “The Martello” warming everybody up with a nice vat of hot chocloate after the racing is finished.

Entry is on the night only at “The Martello” on Bray seafront and costs only €7 (+€3 if you need a one day license).  We kindly ask that all competitors let us know you are coming by sending an email to wicklowtriyouths @ gmail.com including your name and age even if you are a Wicklow Tri Club member as we have to organise the race waves!  It is important that you understand you must be a Triathlon Ireland member on the day of the race or you must arrange a Triathlon Ireland one day membership for July 19th.  We can arrange this the one day license for you at registration but all people who hope to participate should confirm this to us before midnight July 16th so that we can organise race waves even if you have a TI number.  Please include your name, date of birth and if you have one, your TI license number on an email to wicklowtriyouths @ gmail.com 

Here is a little bit of information on the race itself.  Your race wave is decided by your age on the 31st of December 2017
