The Challenge

Note - Entry limit 120 – (60 teams of 2) no entry on the day

This event is being organised by the Loch Long Jetty Association and is a Triathlon Scotland Permit Event.  It will take place on Saturday 8th May 2021 with the 1st Wave starting at 10.30 and the 2nd Wave starting at 12.30.  Competitors must compete in teams of two. 

Sign up as a team by entering the details of the 1st Team Member and then answer the questions relating to the second team member and your team name.  If either one or both of the team is a member of Triathlon Scotland or Triathlon England or Welsh Triathlon you will receive a discount of £6.00.  

This event consists of a kayak on Loch Long for 3.5km on twin sit-on top kayaks (kayaks, paddles and buoyancy aids supplied). Competitors must supply and wear a wet suit for this section and footwear. There will be a cut-off time of 90 minutes to do the kayak section although you will still be allowed to continue with the cycle and the run but your time will not be recorded for competition purposes. This will be followed by a fairly strenuous mountain bike section which is 24km long largely on undulating forest tracks and away from the public road. Competitors have to supply their own mountain bike and this must be in a roadworthy condition and they must wear a properly fitted cycle helmet and carry appropriate repair kit.  1st Wave Competitorts will need to finish this stage by 3pm and the 2nd Wave Competitors by 5pm. The last section of this adventure challenge is a 5km run starting on private roads through woodland and forest before running on the pavement alongside Loch Long with views of Arrochar and Ben Lomond.

The provider of our kayaks, Loch Lomond Leisure (info@lochlomond-scotland.com) are willing to hire out mountain bikes (£15 per person with helmet) and wetsuits (£5 per person).  This must be booked prior to the day of the event.

The Loch Long Adventure Challenge is open to competitors aged 17 years or older on the day of the event.  The entry fee is £106 per team of two (£100 if either or both of the team  are a member/s of Triathlon Scotland, Triathlon England or Welsh Triathlon).

There will be prizes for winning teams (Male, Female and Mixed).  This will be based on the cumulative time of the two team members finishing the event.  There will also be an individual prize for the fastest male and fastest female.  There will be a prize for the first local team and all finishers will receive a memento and t-shirt. Prize Giving will take place at 5.30pm.

If you are local and wish to be considered for the local prize please email lochlongjettyassociation@gmail.com
