After the success of our recent Italy tour I am excited to launch our Group tour to Ireland between 22 September & 02 October 2016. The focus will be on Hiking, Walking & Rambling with a bit running (aiming for Dublin Half Marathon) for good measure. We will start in Dublin and gradually make our way North taking in as much of the Irish countryside and culture as possible. We even stay in an Irish Castle (Cabra), walk the Mountains of Mourne and visit locations used for Game of Thrones.
The tour is fully escorted and Daryl Steeves has agreed to include a 20 week program to get in shape for the tour as well as webinars and a practice hike. We will have our own tour bus with CIE Tours. Please contact myself or Helena for more info or check out the full itinerary by clicking on the following link – Ireland Tour Itinerary

Athlete Guide Rockwood Relays
Welcome to the Rockwood Relays an exciting new style of Team Triathlon over a short course in Rockwood Park, Saint John, ready made for fast and exciting racing. This is a fun style of racing and great for inter club competitions where Tri Clubs can select their A, B or C teams depending on ability levels and compete against each other for bragging rights. As with all our events we want to be as inclusive as possible so even if this your first season of Triathlon you and 2 friends can still have a great experience over the 2 events.

Join us on Thursday 13 August 2015 for our 4th monthly 20k Time Trial series with the first rider off at 6.30pm. Time Trials are a great way to improve your overall cycling fitness in an individual race against the clock. Riders will be set off at 1 minute intervals and will ride a 20k out and back course and with a monthly series you will be able to measure your fitness and speed improvements throughout the summer. This is a real crossover sport as it is perfect training for Triathletes who can pit their skills against pure cyclists. The aim of this series is to attract riders from all walks of like and all fitness levels, we want to be as inclusive as possible so please do not be intimidated if you are not familiar with this style of riding. Drafting is not permitted so it really is a solo effort against the clock so no need to worry about how other riders are performing.
Our course uses the 2 dead turns on Fraser Road and Centennial Road just outside Hampton with the start line being on the Fraser Road end. Here is a link to the exact course we will be using.
