2017 Sprint Super Series
Triathlon Ireland has awarded Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon the Sprint Super Series on Saturday 27th May 2017.
It’s going to be a Super Saturday at this year’s Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon on May 27th with Ireland’s Cat 1 and Cat 2 top age groupers battle it out in the first event of the 2017 Sprint Super Series, the only one in the West of Ireland.
The Super Series, now in its 3rd year in Ireland, caters for the appetite, skill and speed of the fastest athletes over the sprint distance triathlon of 750m swim, 20km bike and 5km. Racing on closed roads in a draft legal environment, chasing points, it’s the only series in the country that allows this type of triathlon racing.
New in 2017, Cat 2 athletes will be racing alongside Cat 1 and in addition Cat 2 will be eligible to score points in the Triathlon Ireland National Series while competing in this Super Series. Full details here.
For the first time this year, Triathlon Ireland will be awarding separate Cat 1 and Cat 2 cash prizes to the top men and top women for the overall standings at the conclusion of Super Series. Those wishing to register for the draft legal Super Sprint Series can log in HERE.
Not only will the super speedy athletes race at this distance for the first time in Lough Cutra, we have also added a non draft legal sprint race to our racing schedule to cater for the demands of those wishing to race at the sprint distance.
