A number of Island Wheelers have signed up to do Irelands first official M-Dot half Ironman to be hosted in Galway on Sunday 4th September 2011.
3 of the members – Alan McKeown, Robbie Silcock and John O’Hagan are new to the triathlon scene and hope to get a few shorter distance triathlons under the belt early next year but will no doubt be a force to be reckoned with! Our forth member Gareth Donnelly has done a few tri’s before and will be looking to better his half Ironman time.
Update: 18th October
Just got word a 5th Island Wheeler has joined in for the season finishing half Ironman in Galway – Claire Burns has registered and will be taking part – good on you Claire!
If any other Island Wheeler is interested in doing this event then the details of it can be found at www.ironmanireland.com and contact any of the above guys to let them know of your interest – the more the merrier!
