Organiser's Description

The Gordonstoun Triathlon Festival is organised by Moray Firth Triathlon Club and an 'Event Permit' application has been submitted to British Triathlon.

In addition to the Sprint Triathlon, we are accepting a limited number of Aquabike enries (Swim/Bike)

As per previous years we have kept the entry costs as low as possible and, as such, it will be 'no frills'.
(i.e. no medals, t-shirts, goody bags, catering)

Prizes will be awarded to overall Open and Female winners in the Sprint race. 
Aquabike and age group prizes may be awarded dependant on the entry uptake. 

The race will be Chip Timed and results will be available on the Thistle Timing website shortly after the event.

Gordonstoun school pupils entering the Sprint race must be aged 15-18 on 31 December 2024. Entry to the race is free for these pupils. However, if they are not a Home Nation member they will be directed to purchace a Race Pass at a cost of £2.00 + 4% service fee.

Race Information :

412m Pool Swim (18 lengths of the 25 yard pool)
25 Km Cycle on public roads. (Any type of bike would be suitable)
5.0 Km Run (off road, within the Gordonstoun grounds). Sprint only.

Aquabike entrants will complete the swim and the bike legs, rack their bike and then cross the finish line.

This event is open to competitors of all abilities.
Entrants must be aged 15 or older on 31 December 2024.

Could we please ask that you submit a 400m swim time that is as accurate as possible. This will enable us to sort out heats and lanes with swimmers of similar pace. This makes the swim much more enjoyable for everyone. (Times can be revised right up to the event closing date)

Parental / Guardian Permission
All competitors aged between 15 and 17 (on 31 December 2024) will require Parental or Guardian Permission to take part, and confirmation that they are sufficiently fit and healthy to to take part in the event.

 

British Triathlon Race Pass

In order to ensure you have adequate third party insurance for the race you will need a valid home nation race licence. If you have Core or Ultimate membership of Triathlon Scotland (or Welsh Triathlon or Triathlon England) then this provides you with a race licence. Please ensure you add your membership number to your Entry Central account and bring proof of your current membership to registration on race day. 

If you don't have home nation membership you will need to purchase a British Triathlon race pass. This option can be selected at checkout. For this event, Race Pass costs are £2.00 for participants aged 24 and under, and £8.00 for age 25+.

If you aren’t already a member of Triathlon Scotland, why not consider joining to experience the range of benefits this offers as well as helping to support the development of the sport.
