The Naas CBS triathlon was first organised by the school’s parents council in 2011 takes place tomorrow at the Naas sports centre between 8am and 11.30am. This year over 300 students are participating.
The purpose of the triathlon is two-fold, namely to encourage the students to take on a healthy and rewarding ‘outdoor’ challenge while raising funds (in the form of sponsorship for doing the event) for the school.
The triathlon consists of three events run consecutively – a swim (200 metres in the K Leisure pool at the Naas Sports Centre), cycle (10kms along the Millennium Road) and run (2.5kms around the Athletics Ground adjacent to Naas Sports Centre).
The school says the event would not be possible without the support of sponsors, who this year include Rioghnagh Bracken and Co solicitors, Tom Cross Coaches, IGSL, Craddock House nursing home, Cross Insurance and the Kildare Sports Partnership and many others.
