Women in Triathlon Networking Seminar - Munster Event

Katie Cooke

Women in triathlon network event

Triathlon Ireland is hosting its next Women in Triathlon Network Event on March 3rd between 2pm and 4.30pm at the Kingsley Hotel in Cork.

This is a chance for all everyone involved in triathlon to discuss how we can take our sport forward towards greater female participation. It's also a great chance to meet with other clubs and other women in our sport.

The event will have a specific focus on club development and how we can work together to develop the sport both in clubs and also through wider participation opportunities.

There will be three guest speakers on the day who will be sharing their triathlon journeys with the group and inspiring others with their stories. All three are local athletes who have excelled in the sport.
