WGT Winter Series 2022
A big welcome to everyone racing in this series, which starts in December 2022 and extends to March 2023. This is the 6th WGT series and we’re excited to welcome the first Irish club to the competition – good luck to Galway Tri. They join clubs from Wales and Scotland doing battle over the 4 months.
All abilities and ages are welcome: We have U20 to 70+ age groups taking part, from complete novices to a few professional multi-sport athletes.
