Online Entries Open for 2018 firmus energy Newry City Triathlon

 

Newry Business Improvement District and Newry, Mourne and Down District Council joined headline sponsor firmus energy to officially launch the 2018 firmus energy Newry City Triathlon taking place on Sunday 26th August.

Considered the fastest Sprint Triathlon in Ireland, 120 athletes competed in the 2017 event which saw local Newry Triathlete Finbar McGrady, who completed the 750m Newry Canal swim, 20km closed road cycle and 5km flat run in an impressive 58 minutes and 30 seconds, win the men’s race for a second year in a row.

Sheena Dullaghan from Setanta Triathlon Club (Dundalk) won the ladies’ race in an impressive 01:12:54.

Eamonn Connolly, Manager of Newry BID said:

“Newry BID is delighted to come onboard as lead partner for a second year to the firmus energy Newry City Triathlon and are excited to work with firmus energy and Newry, Mourne and Down District Council on the event. Last year’s race was a great success and we are committed to making it a bigger, better race this year. Newry City lends itself perfectly for a Triathlon course and we love seeing the athletes getting their best times on the country’s fastest, flattest route.”

Local natural gas Distribution and Supply Company, firmus energy has been on board with the triathlon since the inaugural event in 2014.

Angeline Murphy, Marketing Manager at firmus energy said:

“As firmus energy enters its 4th year of sponsoring the triathlon I’d like to encourage any aspiring athletes to give it a go, you still have plenty of time to get some training done and the local triathlon club are happy to offer advice and support to anyone interested. I’m also encouraging a few of our staff to give it a go as well!”

Speaking at the launch Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chair, Councillor Roisin Mulgrew said:

 

“The firmus energy Newry City Triathlon is a fantastic opportunity to showcase Newry and is enjoyed by competitors, families and spectators alike. The Council is proud to partner with Bid and firmus energy to deliver such a fun-filled event and we look forward to welcoming the many visitors it attracts to our wonderful City.
