It’s off to Courtown this weekend for the second of the Eireman X races, the first having taken place last May.
Back then it proved a good day for the 795’ers as Barry recorded a 26th place finish, followed closely by David and Jim, with James bringing up the rear after his exertions in the Belfast Marathon. [Read the Race Report from the Archive]
The lads are all in action again, and this time will be joined by Aisling, Peter, PJ, Peter and Adrian (and maybe Martin?).
So what to expect? Well the swim route has been reversed, hopefully it has been shortened too! Seemed to be more than 750m last time… The bike course promises to be a little less testing this time round, with the unseasonal dry spell coming just in time. Still there will be lots of challenge, with some nice technical bits on the course. Then of course there’s the run – time to get down’n’dirty wading through the rivers and getting mucky! Can’t wait.
Of course there’s also the excitement of the Points Race for the Club Championship. I hear there have been some last minute relay entries.. No doubt everyone will be giving it their all on the day.
