Mallow ‘Splash ‘n’ Dash ‘n Ballyhass’ Aquathlon.

By | July 25, 2019

Fresh from his success at the Edge Sports Blackwater Triathlon Club Aquathlon the previous week, Blackwater Triathlon Club’s Justin Ryan continued his winning streak, claiming a hard fought victory at the Mallow ‘Splash ’n’ Dash ‘n Ballyhass’ Aquathlon. The event took place in Ballyhass lakes near Mallow on the evening of 2019 Wednesday the 17th of July. More than 60 competitors took part in the race on a warm summer evening. The race consisted of a 750 metre swim in the lake, followed by a hilly 5km run. There was a good turnout from The Blackwater Triathlon Club on the night, with more than a dozen of our finest athletes heading to Mallow to support our neighbouring club. As mentioned, Justin Ryan won the race on the day, crossing the finish line in a very impressive time of 28:53. Fellow BTC athlete Gearoid Murphy finished in fifth place overall, less than two minutes behind Justin, in 30:48. All of the competitors really enjoyed their evening out at the lakes, and especially enjoyed the post race refreshments. Well done to all who took part on the day and to Mallow triathlon Club for organising such an excellent race.
