A 7-day epic, fully supported adventure that starts with a 5km swim in Loch Ness on Day-1, followed by five stunning days on the bike from Scotland to Windsor (cycling 1,000km) before finishing with a 50km ultra-marathon along the River Thames.

Rupert Martin – Monster Triathlon’s Event Director explained that: “People have been cooped up during 2020 and most of 2021 so we’re in no doubt that the Monster Triathlon is a challenge that will sell out fast for 2022.

“It is an epic challenge that allows people to really see the UK at its finest. Each year the Monster community grows, and immensely close friendships are formed, and 2022 will be no different!”
