Tri With Pride Initiative
We are delighted to support Sligo Triathlon Club to introduce a new initiative, ‘Tri With Pride’ for the LGBTQIA+ community on the ethos of introducing people to the world of triathlon.
Date: 3rd July-14th August
Time: Sunday 6-7pm, Tuesday 6.30-8pm
Location: Cleveragh Regional Park and Regional Sports Complex
Cost: €25 to TI for Training License, Programme Fee: €25
Tri With Pride is a 6 week training programme, where participants are coached in run, bike and swim lessons. These sessions run twice a week starting with swim sessions from the 3rd July at the Regional Sports Complex from 6-7pm, and Brick session (cycle and run) starting the 5th July at 6.30pm at Cleveragh Regional Park (Park across the road from the Sports Complex). These sessions will be coached by experienced trainers who have worked on initiatives before and have an inclusive approach.
The event culminates in a mini-triathlon which is a 250metre swim, 10km cycle and a 3km run on the 14th of August 2022 all happening at the Regional Sports Complex and the park across the road and promises to be a great day out for both participants and supporters.
Critical to the running of the event is the system of mentoring, where participants from the previous year’s initiatives provide support to the new participants.
This initiative is led by Sligo Triathlon Club with support from Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership, Sligo Pride, Sport Ireland, Triathlon Ireland, Sporting Pride and Swim Ireland for this event.
