Nairn Sprint and Novice Triathlons

24 Jul 2022

Organiser's Description

The Nairn Triathlon, brought to you by Triathlon Inverness. With beautiful bike and run courses through the Nairnshire countryside and with views over the Moray Firth to greet you at the finish line, whichever race you choose we hope it will be an enjoyable event for all.

There are two race distances for you to choose from: Novice and Sprint. 

Just trying triathlon for the first time? Then the Novice race is perfect. The race will start with a 400m swim along the beach, take you out on a 10km cycle, following country roads east of the town then a flat 3 km run along the beach front. Aimed at beginners to multi-sport, the gentle course and short distances can be taken at your own pace, breast-stroke and walking is allowed! As this race is about participation and individual challenges there will be random prizes for finishers!

Wanting to push yourself that extra mile? The Sprint distance is sure to challenge your competitive side. A 750m swim along the beach, 25km ride and 5km run across a flat course should have you clocking good times. There will be prizes for fastest times in each age-group.

In the unfortunate event you need to withdraw from the race please could you let the organisers know at the earliest oppertunity by emailing This will enable us to reallocate your space to somebody on the waiting list.

At the organisers discretion, refunds (minus entry central fees) will be issued to any competitor who withdraws from the event:

by 2 July (23:59): 100% refund

by 16 July (23:59): 50% refund

Withdrawals after that date will not be refundable even if the event sells out.
