FINAL preparations are being made to welcome hundreds of competitors to Fenit during the Bank Holiday weekend.

The ‘Tri Kingdom Come’ event hosted by the Tralee Triathlon Club will take place on Saturday, August 5 in the scenic surrounds of Fenit.

Triathletes from across Kerry can still sign up for the summer event but do so soon, because over 300 have already registered and it’s expected to sell out before Wednesday’s deadline.

Last year almost 400 triathletes took part in one of Kerry’s most scenic triathlons.

The sprint triathlon is a 750m swim; a 20km cycle and a 5km run; all within the environs of Fenit.

For those who have never tried a triathlon or want a shorter distance than the Try-a-Tri distance is perfect. This is a 250m swim, an 8k cycle and a 2.5k run and it will give you a taster of the world of triathlon.

Relay teams are also welcome to take part in Tri Kingdom Come. This year Tralee Triathlon Club have got huge support from local clubs who are helping ensure a well organised, safe and fun event for triathletes and their supporters.

All participants will get a medal as well as a few other surprises that are in store for this year’s participants.

There will also be a BBQ for competitors and spectators. Registration details for Tri Kingdom Come are now on www.sportstiming.ie or through Tralee Triathlon Club’s Facebook page or website.
