Organiser's Description

Loch Lomond Beastie Triathlon 2022

Organised by Lomond Swimming & Triathlon Club

 

The infamous Loch Lomond Beastie Triathlons will be held in and on the banks of Loch Lomond at Balloch Castle Country Park on Saturday, July 30th 2022.

Hi and Welcome to the entrycentral for the Lomond Beastie Triathlon 2022.  The Beastie is one of the most challenging and exciting triathlons in the UK.  Set in the beautiful and historic Balloch Country Park on the banks of Loch Lomond, the Beastie comprises a 750m swim in the Loch, 17k off road cycle and 5k run, finishing in front of the castle (on the exact spot OASIS, RUNRIG and REM played all those years ago).  Each year we all have a fantastic time and the public come out to cheer on the brave athletes.

We have some rules:

  • Mountain bikes are compulsory, the course isn't suitable for cyclocross or hybrid bikes and drop handlebars are not allowed in cross triathlons. The course can be muddy, we did warn you!
  • Wetsuits are compulsory if the temperature of the water is below 14C and are not allowed if the water temp is above 22c (24.6C if you are 60+) 
  • You must smile at the marshals, they are volunteers and if you don’t they will send you the wrong way (not really they will always point you in the right direction)
  • The cycle is three laps of the course and the run is two laps on mixed terrain. (sturdy road trainers will be ok)

For detailed tri rules please refer to the british triathlon rules on their website here:

Each athlete will receive fantastic goodies to remind you of completing the Loch Lomond Beastie Triathlon. And there are age group prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. 

 

In the unfortunate event you need to withdraw from the race please let us know at the earliest opportunity as it may be possible to offer the place to another person.

Withdrawals up to MAY 30th 2022 will receive a full refund, then up to JUNE 30th 2022 it will be a 75% refund. Sadly we cant provide refunds after June 30th 2022. 

Lomond Swimming & Triathlon Club are a friendly, inclusive club based in West Dunbartonshire and Argyll. You can find out more about us here.
