Who the Race is for?

This year Portlaoise Sprint Try-athlon is open to individuals and teams from the age of 16 years old to 99 years old. Individual entrants complete all three legs to finish the race; team entrants enter as a relay with one member each completing the swim, the bike and the run.

While there are no restrictions on who may enter the race, Trilogy Triathlon Club (local club in Portlaoise) have carefully designed the race and course to particularly suit beginners and a 'Swim Competancy' form must be filled in by entrants and where applicable, their guardians.

The swim, which takes place in a pool allows novice racers to complete a triathlon without needing to worry about swimming outdoors or with a wetsuit. Both the bike course and the run course are on quiet roads and will be well marshalled by an experienced crew of Race Marshals who will guide and direct you through the course. Finally, we are confident that the pricing structure and the central location of the race makes the event accessible to participants from all over Ireland.
