The VGraph KTC Triathlon will take place on Sunday 15th July in Kilkenny Castle Park. This fantastic event is the first event for many who are new to Triathlons and promises to be an experience you will not forget.
Your first Triathlon is full of great fun challenges. Have a read through some of our event tips and you should find some very good advice or answers to some of those nagging questions. The key thing to remember is to do this for your own enjoyment, so you may not get everything exactly right the first time. You have to start somewhere though and we are making it as easy as possible to get that start.

There are many makes, models, brands, etc. It is always good to assess where you want to go in the sport and for your first couple of races borrow so you can try out equipment, which will save you buying it until you know what suits you best. It is always good to get together with a squad or training group as they can share lots of experience, trials and knowledge of various brands of equipment.
