One Day License (ODL)
Purchase your ODL from Triathlon Ireland
As the Lough Ree Monster Triathlon is a fully sanctioned Triathlon Ireland (TI) event then if you do not have full TI membership you need to purchase a ODL from Triathlon Ireland to compete
Don't forget your TI card
TI rules for racing, no card/ODL no race!
All competitors must show their Triathlon Ireland membership card at registration. This card is grey in colour.
If you do not have your membership card, please contact the Triathlon Ireland office at least one week prior to the race so that they can post out a card to you.
If you do not have a Full, Student or Junior membership card, you must pre-purchase a One Day Licence through the Triathlon Ireland website. This must be purchased by midnight the Thursday before the race.
Any competitor who cannot show their Triathlon Ireland membership card (grey in colour) or a One Day Licence at registration, will not be allowed to race as they will not be covered by insurance.
Do not wait until the week before the race to apply for your TI membership as you will not receive your card in time.
Please apply for your TI membership at least 2-3 weeks before the race to ensure you receive your card in time. If you do not have your card at least one week before the race, please contact the Triathlon Ireland office on 01 276 4934 so that they can arrange to have a card sent to yo in time for the race.
