Killiney Beach Club Race

After an entire season of postponed and then cancelled races, we decided in the end to hold our own COVID-compliant club race based in Killiney Beach on Sunday 9 September. The weather was kind to us, we ran two distances: a long course comprising 1500m swim, 60km cycle over the Sallygap and a 5km run; and a short course of 1000m swim, 45km cycle up to Glencree and a 5km run. We had neutral transitions and a 3km neutral bike from Killiney beach to Shankhill. Garret Kearney comfortably won the long course race and our coach Gigi Lopez the short course, with Stephen Kiernan a close second.
