To apply for selection, please submit your 200m swim time and your 1500m run time before 14th June. If you have not been able to secure a 1500m track time this year, then your best junior parkrun time will be accepted.
Although TS2 are doing an aquathlon on Saturday 20th August, both age groups will be competing in a triathlon on Sunday 21st August as part of the mixed relay event. We will chiefly be looking at results from this year, however results fromlast season will provide some background information on the athlete.
There are races coming up that you may be interested in competing in which will provide a good opportunity to demonstrate your racing ability. Staunton Harold on the 12th June has an aquathon which has similar distances to those in the IRC’s. There is also a series of Aquathlons at Spring Lakes starting on the 1st May that you may wish to consider.
