Moray Firth Triathlon Club Gordonstoun Festival

12 Sep 2021

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

The Gordonstoun Triathlon Festival is organised by Moray Firth Triathlon Club and has been granted a British Triathlon 'Event Permit'. It has been certified as 'Covid Secure'.

Important Covid-19 Information :

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.
