Looking ahead to the Aberfeldy Triathlon 2018

Set in the beautiful Highland Perthshire region, this great Middle Distance race (1900m Swim, 90km Bike, 21km Run), takes in the cool, clear waters of Loch Tay, challenging roads over the shoulder of Schiehallion, a circumnavigation of the wild Loch Rannoch, and the grounds of the spectacular Taymouth Castle. A real test in an amazing place – in short, THE classic Scottish triathlon.

Race Organisers are delighted that the 2018 race will host triathlonscotland’s National Age Group Championships on Sunday 19 August. In addition to the Scottish Championship status a new and exciting Sprint Event is being added to the weekend program.

The Loch Tay Sprint Triathlon (www.aberfeldytriathlon.com/sprint-tri.html) is an ideal foray into the world of Open Water triathlon, suitable for Novices and seasoned triathletes alike. The swim will take place in the cool waters of Loch Tay, the bike will head out on the North side of Loch Tay and through the picturesque villages of Fearnan and Fortingall before heading back to T2 on the Kenmore Sports Ground. The run is a single lap course in the beautiful grounds of Taymouth Castle.

Event organisers have got more plans to develop the event in 2019 which will create a three day multi sports festival, so watch out for further announcements after next year’s race.
