Scottish National Sprint Triathlon Championships - Monikie Park
08 Jul 18
Welcome to the Scottish National Sprint Triathlon Championships at Monikie Park brought to you by Triathlon Scotland & Monifieth Triathlon Club (M3)
This is a fantastic sprint Triathlon for all those who wish to experience an open water swim in the beautiful setting of Monikie Country Park and cycle on the local roads within Angus with a flat run around the ponds. The event is open to athletes of all abilities.
The swim is in the smaller of the two lakes, North Lake over a 750 metre course, swimming an anticlockwise circuit. The swim will be a mass beach start (However this may be in 2-3 waves dependant on competitor numbers). The entry point is different to the exit. On exiting you are within 80 meters of transition.
Wetsuits are compulsory.
Exiting the transition area, you will be guided onto the cycle route out of the south gate. Exit the south gate of Monikie Park, turn left on B961 to Crombie Crossroads, turn left on B9128 to junction B978, turn left. Continue south to junction at Luckyslap, turn left. Head into Monikie Village to the bridge, turn right (this is a quiet junction), continue to B961 turn left and enter south gate of Monikie Park to finish the cycle.
Exit transition for the run anti clock wise around the both lakes for the first lap and then South lake only on the second lap finishing on the second lap in front of the rangers building.
