Online entry to North West Triathlon Club’s thrilling series of races for 2013 is now open. As part of its 30th anniversary celebrations, the club promises to stage some of the most memorable races of 2013 and this time around there’s an exciting addition to the annual North West Series. To mark Derry’s year as City of Culture, the specially organised City of Culture Sprint event on June 23 promises to be one of the highlights of Irish triathlon calendar. Places are filling up fast for this hotly anticipated race, which will include an open water swim in the spectacular River Foyle, a testing ride on the city’s two famous road bridges, and a run which takes in Derry’s iconic Peace Bridge and the recently regenerated Ebrington Square. Annual favourites, the North West Duathlon (Sunday, April 15) and the National Series Liam Ball Sprint triathlon (Sunday, May 5 ) are also now available for online entry at the Triathlon Ireland website. Early entry is advised for these races which attract triathletes from all over Ireland each year. As an added incentive this year, triathletes who enter all three races in the series online at Triathlon Ireland’s website will receive €10 euro discount. Joe Doherty, Chair of NWTC, is inviting triathletes to come and join in party as the club celebrates its anniversary and Derry’s City of Culture year in style. “It’s going to be a big year for the club and the 2013 North West Series reflects just that. It’s fantastic to be celebrating our 30th year in conjunction with Derry’s designation as City of Culture and we look forward to welcoming triathletes of all abilities to join the party. We’ll be hosting the race of the year in Ireland on June 23 when we stage the much anticipated City of Culture Sprint Triathlon. We also expect greater interest than usual in our mainstay events, the exilerhating North West Duathlon and the ever-popular Liam Ball Triathlon, which has National Series status this year.”
