Hi All, the following is an email from Liquid Motion Tri Club about their Salmon Run Triathlon in July!
My way of introduction, I am the PRO of Liquid Motion Triathlon Club, which is based in Ballina, County Mayo.
We have launched our annual triathlon sprint race- Ballina Salmon Run 2011 which takes place in Ballina on the 9th July 2011. Full details can be found on www.liquidmotion.ie .
The reason I am contacting you directly about the race is to raise awareness to your club that our race course is very suitable for first time triathletes. In particular, our swim leg is with the current in the fast flowing River Moy therefore less challenging for those novice athletes who are nervous about undertaking the swim leg in a triathlon. The bike leg is an out and in course and the run course is relatively flat.
We appreciate athletes of all levels entering the race however we are strongly encouraging first time triathletes to come along and take part. Triathletes who enter the Salmon Run will be asked to specify on entry whether this race is their first triathlon as we intend on providing prizes for novices. In addition, we will have experienced triathletes available to novices at race registration to answer any queries or to simply put any last minute pre race fears to rest. Hot showers and a meal (not curry we promise!!!) will be provided after the race with the prize giving.
If any of your athletes intend on staying in Ballina for the night, Liquid Motion would like to invite them to our Apres Race celebrations. The more the merrier is our motto for apres race celebrations.
On behalf of Liquid Motion may I wish your club and all of its triathletes a very safe and successful triathlon season in 2011.
