This is from Run Ireland…………..A reference number is for our records and is issued when details are submitted (does not mean you are entered). You then go through “checkout” and when payment is received you are issued an order number.
Note you are not entered unless you have an order number. You will not be registered until you go through Cr. Card details etc.

Race Briefing

Carlingford Triathlon 2013, Co. Louth.
Start: Sunday 18th August @  **Time change** now at 10.00am

Registration

Registration will take place  on Sunday 18th from 8.30am to 9.30am.

Registration will be at the Carlingford Sailing Club.

At registration, each competitor will receive their goodie bag and receive their swim cap and number, a t-shirt and timing chip. The race specific swim hat must be worn outermost during the swim leg. The timing chip should be attached to your ankle on race morning, No chip – no time!

Bikes must then be racked within the secure transition area. Spots will be NOT numbered. The transition area will be closed at 9.45am by which time all bikes must be racked.

Pre Race

On race day, both athletes and spectators are advised to park outside Sailing Club (limited parking only) adjacent to sailing club and in the village.

Transition will be open from 8.30am. Only competitors will be allowed access. Toilet facilities are available at the Sailing Club. Verbal briefings from race organisers and the race referee will take place at 9.45am. All competitors must attend at this time, as their timing chip will be registered and counted as they pass over timing mat onto the slipway for the start of the swim.

Swim

Their will be a one wave start. Wetsuits must be worn. Once counted onto the slipway adjacent to transition, competitors may enter the water and proceed to the start line. All competitors must wear the race specific swim cap. We appeal to swimmers to obey marshals instructions and stay behind the start line once called to order. Slower swimmers should position themselves towards the back of the pack. The race will be started by the sounding of a siren. The swim course will be two 750m laps and go anti-clockwise around a triangular course. The two marker buoys should be kept to your left. Any swimmer who gets into difficulty should follow standard protocol. Roll onto your back, try to stay calm and raise one hand in the air. A canoeist will come to your aid. At the end of the first lap, swimmers must exit the water and proceed up the slipway to go around the static marker before entering the water for a second lap. At the end of the second lap, competitors should go directly to transition. As you enter transition your chip will register your swim time. For safety reasons, please also shout out your race number when asked.


Transition 1

Transition rules will be as standard. Helmets must be fastened before bikes are touched. Do not interfere with anyone else’s equipment. If anything is knocked over by accident, please replace it. Bikes must not be mounted until you have passed the timing mat at the exit of transition.
Bike (All new bike route)

Cyclists will be funnelled to the exit from the sailing club harbour car park. Once onto the road, you turn right to begin the bike lap. Rules of the road apply at all times on the bike route. Whilst the Garda and marshals will assist with traffic control, it is ultimately the athlete’s responsibility to protect themselves and other racers. Drafting is prohibited (The word cheating, comes to mind !!) in accordance with the standard rules and rules of Triathlon Ireland. Junctions will be signposted and road markings will be in place.  Most junctions will also have a marshal or/and Garda in attendance. This route is on public road so gel/bar wrappers should not be discarded. Completion of the one large lap sees a sharp right turn back down towards the sailing club car park. On the small coast road to the Sailing club, approx. 500m, there will be a no overtaking rule in place. Please take care going down towards transition! Bikes must be dismounted before crossing the timing mat.

Transition 2

Bikes must be racked before helmets are unfastened. Again, please show respect for other competitors’ equipment.
Run

Once out of the transition area, turn left on road. The run route proceeds onto the main Dundalk road towards Greenore.  Aid station (water) is provided approximately 4k and 8k mark. At the finish line, we’ll provide fluids and food while your timing chip is removed. Ensure that you re-hydrate and fuel properly.
Post Race

Post race showers will be available at the Sailing Club. Food will be available at the sailing club from 1:00pm onwards. All bikes must be removed from transition after finishing the race. Prize giving will take place 2pm, once results are available and last competitor has crossed the line.

See you all then……..it’s goin’ to be a cracker !!

Setanta fill the podiums, bar the top two spots.
Paul Carroll defended his title for the second yea rand took top spot in this years Carlingford Triathlon. A field of over 200 took to the waters edge at the Carlingford Sailing Club. Sean Mallon was first out of the water, with Karl Kildea a close second. the relay team of Coyle/McCabe took an early lead on the 40k bike leg. Paul carroll was to take the lead mid way through the bike section, being put under pressure by Gerry McCabe storming up through the field to run second out of T2. Carroll was to hold the lead and take line honours once again. Owen Martin had a very solid run off the bike and moved into second spot overall. McCabe filling the podium in third.

In the ladies race Marie Boland led from start to finish and indeed finished in the top 10 for a fantastic result. Meanwhile Suzy Macken, who is in great form of late, took second with fellow club mate Laura O’Driscoll returning from injury filling the podium in trird.

Full results from Chitit.com  HERE

Point of note John McKevitt finishing his first ever Olympic triathlon took the Carlingford Spirit of Triathlon Award/Cup for his achivement

John McKevitt triathlete/legend comments:- The tri is a very individual event. Before it everybody is full of bon-homie but this is nerves. In the water the only sound is the silence of the water, on the bike u get into urself and the only sound / feeling is power in ur legs as u keep the pedals turning, the run should be quiet as well like running on eggshells. At different times during the event u get the “high” of a good swim , cycle, run. The most important thing is that anybody can achievea nd take part in a triathlona nd at the end the other competitors are not important , u r only competing against urself.  Thanks for yesterday it was great. Well done.

Gerry McCabe:- one of the best triathlons I have been to in a long time, so well run and marshalled, great to be part of it. Well done to all Setanta members for putting on a great race.

Andrew Coyle:- You couldn’t be unaffected by the positive energy around the sailing club on Saturday. The event organisation was superb – on the water, on the road and in the clubhouse. The good will, man for man, amongst the triathlon fraternity was particularly obvious at the finish line. Although fiercely competitive, the hand shaking and comparing of times after the race was an example of the mutual respect amongst triathletes.
