Once the adults (slow swimmers) are finished we will get you into the water and swim up the river foyle. This year we make the swim longer for those who want to and can go longer and also retain the 150 metre option same as last year. so let go, see you in the river foyle on thursday evening. The swim will be about 6.30ish and a wetsuit and brightly coloured swim hat is compulsory.

Sunday 29th May

Hello folks

Update for this Sunday's session.

Because of the marathon and mini marathon on Sunday 5th June, this
Sunday's session will be the last before the Kids Firmus Triathlon on
12th June. Sunday's session will be a swim only session and will be
followed by a nice bit of grub.

Neither of these events should be missed.

The swim session will no doubt be led by the one and only Paddy Bradley
and is sure to be great craic.

If any of you have been to our after events, you will know that the
food is spectacular, homemade grub and this Sunday promises to be no

So hopefully we will see you all there on Sunday.

NWTCJNR: Training 15th May 2016

Hello Everyone,

Firstly apologies about the late post please forgive me, work & life seem this week to get in the way :-)

anyway this Sunday we will have a TRIALathlon, what is a trialathlon ? well it's a Trial Triathlon you have all practised your  T1 & T2 last week, have been Swimming, Biking & Running so lets try it all together in one morning and see how it all goes.

Swim, Bike & Run.

As its a trial it would be best to bring your OWN bike & Helmet, don't panic if you haven't got one we will organise one for you but to give yourself the best chance and proper test you should use your own equipment.

We will run this event in as near like triathlon as possible the only exception is post the swim we will not have you running down the stairs. after the swim you can get dressed then when downstairs we will start again with T1 bike pickup, then T2 & RUN.

Don't under stand, don't PANIC we will talk you through it on Sunday morning.

SEE you all Sunday Morning
