Scottish National Championship Standard Triathlon - Sunday 10th September 2017

hosted by Fleet Feet Triathletes

The Knockburn Loch site is man-made and located below Kerloch Hill, near Banchory, AB31 6LL. It was developed several years ago by one of the Fleet Feet triathletes as a free-for-all sporting facility. As a result, it is ideal for open water triathlons.

Standard Distances are:

  • 1.5km Open Water Swim. 2 laps, wetsuits are compulsory and there will be a 50 minute cut-off time.
  • 42km Cycle. 3 lap undulating cycle on quiet country roads. www.plotaroute.com/route/163459
  • 10km Run. On the challenging terrain in surrounding area. Mixture of trails and paths.  www.plotaroute.com/route/163472

Detailed timings to follow - plan Standard Heat 1 start 10:00

The standard event is open to competitors who are triathlonscotland Junior 2/B category and older (i.e. minimum 17 years old on 31-Dec-17).

Entries accepted from website by cheque and entry form if preferred.

Race License. A race license provides you with insurance cover during racing and training with triathlon clubs. They are either available for a year from the governing body triathlon scotland, or race by race. Those people without a yearly race license, pay a higher entry fee which effectively provides them with a race day only license. You may join Triathlon Scotland on the day of the race, if you are not already a member. See information about joining Triathlon Scotland here.

Volunteers. To make this event happen we are looking for volunteers to help on the day of the event. If you would like to support us and cheer the athletes along either as a marshal, during registration or at the finish line, get in touch at .

Knockburn Sports Loch.

The cafe will be open on site to provide light lunches, snacks, delicious cakes and speciality teas and coffees.

Please note that dogs are not allowed to be walked on site under any circumstances, if you must bring your four legged friend with you then they must remain in the car at all times (no toilet breaks on site). There is a small car park to the left of the entrance where you can park up, and walk your dog if they have to accompany you. The exception being Guide Dogs / Special assistance dogs.
