On Thursday’s …. We Time Trial! 🚴

This evening marked the return of our ATC Summer TT Series - and our members meant business!!! πŸ”₯  A 16km route along the Athlone to Ballinasloe road, with good road surfaces, hard shoulder all the way and no junctions to contend with, the riders could really brush off those race cobwebs, harness that adrenaline and really push the boundaries! πŸ’¨  A brilliant turnout, some fierce racing and some really impressive times being posted! Huge well done to everyone who took part this evening, particularly to our brand new members taking on their first club challenge. This is going to be one hot competition πŸ”₯ #athlonetriathlonclub #athlonetriclub  #ATCMovingForMentalHealth #ATCSummerTT #TrainingTogetherWhileStayingApart  #AthloneTriJuniorClub #iTrainWithAthloneTriClub

Sunday Spins

 They say Sunday is the best day of the week to reset and prepare for the new week ahead.  Today, that reset signaled a real attitude for gratitude and the return of our Sunday Spins - which as quoted by members was “faster, longer, harder with some dodgy gear and even better craic” - ideal return we say πŸ˜‚ This latest group training session returning, alongside our open water swim session this past weekend, has now meant that ATC are providing opportunities for our members to train safely together 5 times a week!! And we are buzzing about having that group dynamic and camaraderie back! πŸ’ͺ🏻 We are open for membership and here to answer any questions you may have about joining!

πŸƒ‍♂️“I’d forgotten how good it feels to race”πŸƒ‍♀️

Week 1 of our ATC “Stay at Home Summer Duathlon Series” has certainly managed to inject a very welcome burst of effort, energy, motivation and vigour amongst our members! We’ve had a weekend of friendly competition, mutual support from club-mates and a buzz about “being back!”. So fantastic to see our members out doing what they do best, and feeling that adrenaline rush from a racing challenge.  Roll on event number 2! πŸƒ‍♂️πŸš΄πŸƒ‍♀️ #athlonetriathlonclub #athlonetriclub  #ATCMovingForMentalHealth #TrainingTogetherWhileStayingApart  #AthloneTriJuniorClub #iTrainWithAthloneTriClub

Back on (the) Track

Our first outdoor training session together as a group in 2021 and it was a resounding vibe of positivity, reinvigoration and genuine gratitude for finally being able to come together as a club and train with coaches and clubmates face to face.  The banter was flying, that friendly sense of competitiveness was ever present, new members could finally meet the club faces behind that WhatsApp group chat and that unwavering ATC club spirit was shining bright!!  Coach Mick summed it up perfectly - “So good to meet you all in person again; it’s only going to get better!” πŸ–€πŸ’› #athlonetriathlonclub #athlonetriclub #ATCMovingForMentalHealth #TrainingTogetherWhileStayingApart  #AthloneTriJuniorClub #iTrainWithAthloneTriClub

  Our Club Committee are constantly working hard in the background to plan for the year ahead, to bring lots of great challenges, initiatives and training opportunities to all members and to keep Athlone Triathlon Club current, engaging and at the forefront of the Triathlon community in the Midlands. One very important factor in all our efforts, especially in recent times, has been the main vision for our Club and the values which underpin what we strive to achieve. A recent survey of all our Club Members, across all ages and levels, has allowed us to reimagine our purpose and direction not just for the remainder of this year, but for many years to come. By providing our members with the valuable opportunity to have their voices heard and offer feedback, suggestions and opinions, we now have a framework that sets a firm purpose for our Club and a key set of values and principles encapsulating our Club’s identity; which we will endeavour to keep at the heart of everything we do going fo
