Please see details for an event being held by our friends in Newry Wheelers. All for a good cause on 6th March 2016. It would be great to see a good turn out of club members to support this run. There are two routes to choose from so its time to get the bikes out and start the season at the charity sportive.
On Sunday 14th February six members of Portadown Cycling Club entered the first race of Lisburn Triathlon Club’s Duathlon Series at the Down Royal Racecourse.
The successful SERE Duathlon series is now in it’s 3rd year and this year saw the return to competition of some of our experienced multi sports members. We also had some members competing in their first Duathlon.
Our members challenged themselves to the 2 Mile Run / 10 Mile Cycle / 2 Mile Run course along with just over 100 other competitors.
Thanks to Lisburn Triathlon Club for a very well organised and marshalled race and especially for the warm soup after on what was a very chilly morning.
The next race in the series is on Sunday 20th March.
