NOT even a power outage last Thursday morning could derail the National Learning Network’s first ever Triath-ALL, with over 70 people taking part in the event as part of the ‘1 Day for Rehab’ fundraiser.
The power cut struck just as the participants were about to hit the pool, leaving them to face into the 3k run down the Dublin road and back up the Stradbally Road first.
It was sure to be the energy buzzing past the Killeshin that eventually got the lights back on and before long, waves raged through the pool, flags were flying, wheels were spinning, and the cheers were even heard as far off as the prison.
Cars beeped and sirens sounded passing by the flag-fest of activity. Four teams battled it out and Green, Yellow, Red and Blue worked hard as they tried their best to get ahead.
