Welcome to the City of Derry Triathlon
Welcome to the firmus energy City of Derry Triathlon 2017. This year our triathlon will be the ‘Sprint National Series’ Triathlon, on Sunday 11th June, comprises a 750m open water swim in the River Foyle followed by a 20km closed road cycle culminating in a 5km flat run that takes in key attractions around the City including the iconic Peace Bridge.
As like 2016 the 2017 swim route will be one way & with the tide. Last year some people got SIGNIFICANT PB’s on their swims and everyone that raced that day all commented on the improved swim course. Come down & try it for yourself.
There will be plenty of complementary events throughout the week for children and adults to join in, including a ‘Buddy Swim’ in the Foyle which partners a child with an adult in a competitive race
