Swinford Triathlon Club hold many training events throughout the year. Currently (Winter schedule) you are all welcome to the following:

Cycling

From Sunday October 7th cycles will depart Applegreen at 9am.

Ireland West Duathlon

Though Swinford will not be hosting any of the events, we will endeavor to get as many of our members as possible to participate in them. In preparation, we will run a few local Duathlon series nearer the events , most likely from Amenity on Saturday mornings. Full particulars to follow. Plus we’ll be holding 2 Duathlon events in 2019 for the Siamsa & the 250th Celebrations – watch this space & FaceBook

Swimming

A few years ago, we hired out local pools and acquired the services of qualified swim coaches in an effort to teach people to swim and improve the techniques of those who were able to swim. This proved very popular and successful and perhaps it is now time again to establish if there is suffient interest among our members and if there is a pool and coach available.
If you are interested, please let us know ASAP.

Summer Schedule:

Sunday Cycles
