Richard Pearson from Triathlon Edinburgh said, “We are delighted to continue the development of festival format of the Aberfeldy weekend despite being unable to secure the required permissions for the Triathlon Run courses in Kenmore. It’s disappointing that the very popular Loch Tay Sprint Triathlon will be taken off the 2020 schedule, but we do hope it will return in 2021. Our thanks go to British Triathlon and Triathlon Scotland for entrusting us with their Middle-Distance Championships and we look forward to welcoming athletes from across the UK to Highland Perthshire in August.”

Entry prices for the various events at Aberfeldy Multi Sports Festival 2020 start from £20.  All entrants will receive an official chip time and finisher’s medal/memento dependent on event entered.
