The Traighathlons explained:  

Swim, ride and run against a backdrop of one of Scotland’s most iconic land and seascapes?

On Saturday 21st September 2019, Mallaig Pool & Leisure will deliver a unique, challenging and affordable series of multiple distance triathlons based along the stunning Road to the Isles. This wild and wonderful natural playground will not disappoint with both novice and experienced triathletes catered for!

The spectacular location, coupled with a great spectator friendly course, make the Traigh Triathlons the ideal sports destination for the entire family. By hosting a series of multiple distance triathlons means that a complete cross-section of competitors from first time triathletes through to national team athletes will get to enjoy the event!

The day will be split into three concurrent events of varying distances (please click on the highlighted ‘bike ride’ and ‘run’ links for route maps):

  • The Try a Tri at Traigh (£25): This event is suitable for complete novices and first-timers and incorporates a 400m heated indoor swim, a 10km bike ride and a 2.5km run.
  • The Traigh Sprint (£35): This event is suitable for both beginners and experienced triathletes. The sprint incorporates a 750m open water swim, a 20km bike ride and a 5km run.
  • The Traigh Standard (£45): This event is only suitable for experienced triathletes and incorporates a 1500m open water swim, a 40km bike ride (the route on the map is to be completed twice) and a 10km run.

The event can be completed by individuals or as relay teams where each team member completes a single discipline.

What’s more, all proceeds from this event go directly towards supporting our community sports facility, Mallaig Pool & Leisure Centre.

Entries will be available soon
