BBC Scotland Adventure Show LIVE from Dunbar Friday 5th July 2019 7pm

The BBC Scotland Adventure Show will be coming live from Foxlake Adventures near Dunbar in East Lothian tomorrow, featuring the Foxlake Triathlon, Friday night 5thJuly from 7pm.

This will be the second live broadcast of the Adventure Show, which has been on BBC Scotland for many years as a recorded programme of extreme sports events. The public can attend to watch live the events as audience too.

“LIVE on TV, ladies and gentlemen, the slightly crazy Foxlake Triathlon 2019…” says organiser Paul McGreal of Durty Events in the Scottish Borders. “Leave the stresses and strains of the working week behind you, and come and do something fast and furious at the amazing Foxlake Adventures near Dunbar. This is off-road Triathlon like you’ve never, ever, seen it before!”

The race will start in waves – with 150 men and women signed up to take part.  “The course will be short – we’re aiming for winning times of around 40-45 minutes. Yep, that’s for the whole lot… Swim, Bike and Run. Take it as fast or as easy as you like – on the rivet, or in the comfort zone. Either way, this should be fun.”


Foxlake Adventures is Scotland’s first cable wakeboarding park along with the UK’s only ropes course constructed over water.  There is something appealing to participants to fall into the water! Located in the heart of East Lothian, 25 mile from Edinburgh it nestles in beautiful woodlands on the edge of the John Muir Way. It offers visitors the opportunity to try wakeboarding, take on the Challenge of FoxFall rope course, Zip from tree to tree above the forest floor on Zip Trail explore the woodlands on off road segways or just chill out on the lake side with a coffee in the award winning Boardside Café.

The Foxlake Triathlon race will be televised – LIVE on BBC Scotland in the Adventure Show.

The course is approximately 200m open water swim in the beautiful private freshwater Wakeboard Park. Open water, deep water start.

Mountain biking follows, for approximately 6Km, nothing wildy technical, but tricky enough to catch you out if you hit it hard! There are two laps, passing through Transition Area at the end of each lap.

And finally, the 3km Trail Run. Two Laps, passing through Transition Area at the end of each lap.

BBC Scotland channel, Friday 5th July 2019, 7pm – 9pm. And on iPlayer to watch back afterwards.
