Moray Firth Triathlon Club Gordonstoun Festival

12 Sep 2021

Organiser's Description

Gordonstoun Triathlons are organised by Moray Firth Triathlon Club.
The Permitting process with Triathlon Scotland is currently in-progress.

Important Covid-19 Information :


As thing stands each competitor will be required to submit a pre-event Covid Health Declaration. This will be shared with NHS Test and Protect service if required. (We will send out the form closer to the event date.)

Due to ongoing uncertainty regarding Covid-19 this race will proceed on a 'no frills' basis. There will be no prizes or medals this year and bike racking will not be used. Each competitor will have a marked area on the grass within the transition area to place their bike and bag.

If Covid restrictions prevent the pool swim taking place, the event will be changed to a Duathlon format i.e.  run-bike-run.

Chip timing will still be employed, giving each competitor an accurate overall time with splits for each discipline and transitions.

As a result of these changes Entry Costs have been significantly reduced and represent excellent value.

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. 

Entry Exchanges

We do not offer a facility to exchange entry places prior to the event under any circumstances.  This also applies to people arriving at the event wishing to take another person's place.  Identities are carefully checked at Event Registration and any "substitutes" will be rejected

If the event organisers have to cancel the race, for whatever the reason, full refunds will be given (less the Entry Central Processing fee).

Competitors cancelling at least 28 days from the event date (i.e. by 15 August) will be given a full refund (less the Entry Central Processing fees). 

Competitors cancelling within 28 days from the event date (i.e. from 16 August) may only receive a full/ partial refund (less the Entry Central Processing fees) at the discretion of the race organisers, and only if the place can be filled.
