Triathletes take centre stage! thumbnail

THIS Saturday, May 13 sees the return of the Roe Valley Sprint Triathlon at the Roe Valley Leisure Centre in Limavady, organised by the Triangle Triathlon Club.
This exciting start to the season sees 150 athletes from all over the country swimming 30 lengths (750 metres), cycling 20 kilometres (12.5 miles) and running 5K (3.1 miles). The event is sponsored by Xperience Softwear Company; Gabriel Devlin Motors and Kevin Watson Construction Group.
The Race Organiser, Peter Jack, says: "This is always a great time of the year - Triathletes, who have been working hard for months, finally get the chance to shine in the spring sunshine! We have no doubt there will be some very fine performances.
“Pre-race favourite in the Men's race has to be our very own James Walton from Boleran, Ringsend. James was recently second in the Liam Ball race at Templemore and will be looking to win the Roe Valley Sprint event for the second time."
