Training Update 24/04/2020

We hope that all of our community is keeping safe and well at the moment. Today we would like to give you an update around some elements of training.

Club Training

In line with current Government Guidelines, we have extended the date for suspension of club training from the 30th of April to the 5th of May. We will provide an update over the coming weeks as regards how to proceed after the 5th of May.

Open Water Swimming

It is against Government Guidelines to take part in Open Water Swimming as a form of exercise. Please do not use open water swim venues for recreation or exercise. It is important to consider the effect on an already stretched healthcare service if you were to get into trouble in the open water.

You can read the Government, Irish Coast Guard and RNLI advice in relation to this here.

We have produced some FAQs on Training and Covid-19, which you can read here.

Online Sessions

Triathlon Ireland is bringing you daily at-home sessions to take part in. Each day the sessions are loaded to our Facebook and YouTube channel, you can then take part live at the scheduled time or you can replay at a time that suits your schedule. We also have two turbo workouts and a weekly Zwift social spin.
