Ladies, unleash your inner triathlete
Did you know that over 40% of our members are female? OTC have some of the best age group female triathletes in Ireland. If you're interested then why not join us at one of our training sessions? We'd be happy to give all the advice you need.
'I can't swim'
Swimming ability is usually the biggest barrier to triathlon. You can cycle and run, but find it difficult to swim a few lengths, right? Join the club, most of us started in the same position. Just ask many of our triathletes.
Set yourself a goal like a 'try a tri' short distance pool event. Why not join our weekly pool sessions? We're there to give support and advice. Remember, you can swim, you just don't know it yet.
"Bloody hell I never ever thought I would end up doing this"
