CONGRATULATIONS to Shane Guinan and Brian Monaghan who were competing at Tri an Mhi, Collinstown, Co Westmeath on Sunday, May 13 in their first ever triathlon.

This triathlon was a half-ironman event which consisted of a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile cycle and a 13.1 mile run on a tough, hilly course.

Shane completed the above in a provisional time of 6hrs 5mins followed closely by Brian in a time of 6hrs 20 mins. The boys were unfortunate in picking up a number of punctures on the course.

Hopefully thats all their bad luck out of the way for the rest of the season!

Best of luck to Mark Serviss who is going to Lanzarote this weekend to compete in the Ironman on May 19, the second hardest Ironman on the planet.

Hope everything goes well Mark and all that training pays off!
