Go Further!

Creag nan Luch. Not a lot of things in life come free. Perhaps parental love or true friendship. And the Tollaidh Triathlon, it’s free, no entry charge, but will you leave unscathed ? No idea what I am talking about, read on ….



A quick note, I can’t break off from training for too long…The schedule below is different to recent years. The change is in the hope of making it even more fun than ever and an attempt to make sure a ‘climber’ wins rather than a ‘runner who climbs’ scooping the coveted trophy.

Tollaidh Triathlon Saturday 3rd May 2014



– from 10am leave bikes at Slattadale (car park at shore of Loch Maree)

– from 10.15am Registration Opens at Tollaidh (parking close to Tollaidh Farm)

– 10.15am to 11.45am CLIMB on Creag nan Luch – three attempts (3 minutes max per climb). The higher the grade the more minutes deducted from run/cycle time. Highest scoring climb to count. Draws will be in situ.
To vie for a podium place a climb must be led. A top rope climb is available to ‘complete’ the tri.

– 12.00am RUN/BIKE starts:
8km run Tollaidh to Slattadale
22km road bike Slattadale to Tollaidh finishing line

– Re-fuelling and relaxing at the car park finishing area in the sunshine.

Individuals or Teams can enter. Prizes may be won if I can gather any together. The Golden Karabiner goes to the winning Individual.

So slightly different format to previous years which should make after race socialising easier and more convenient also make time keeping easier and more clean cut.

No A.Wilby, no C.Meek, no M.Jamieson, I know it is hard to imagine but all the oldies from last year will be even slower this year. So nothing to lose, the event is wide open (as always)….give it a go, you might even enjoy it.

See you there
