St. Mary's Loch Standard Triathlon
29 Jun 2019
DATE - Saturday 29th June 2019
TRIATHLON DESCRIPTION For a change, we're staying on-road for a race, though this is rapidly becoming one of the 'classic' Scottish races. It may be a 'Standard' (aka "Olympic") distance, however this is a far from standard 'Standard'!.
The event is set at the spectacular St. Mary's Loch in the heart of the Scottish Borders. Amazing views guaranteed throughout the race.
Swim: 1500m Open Water in the freshwater St. Mary's Loch. Two laps. Wetsuits compulsary.
Bike: 40km Road Bike in the Yarrow and Moffat Water valleys. On leaving the Tibbie Shiels/Sailing Club access road, you'll turn left and head along the A708 towards Moffat for 20km. It's a gradual climb past Loch of the Lowes and up to the watershed pass that seperates the Scottish Borders from Dumfries & Galloway. Then comes a fast swoopy descent past the Grey Mares Tail waterfall. The road undulates along the valley floor all the way to the turn point at 20km, then it's back the way you've come, including the grind back up to the pass!.
Due to a change to the Triathlon Scotland rules under 18's must have parental consent to cycle on open roads. Please ensure that consent is gained and the relevant information provided when you enter the race or you may be withdrawn from the race.
Run: 10km along the Southern Upland Way to the eastern end of St. Mary's Loch, and return again. It's a (mostly) good quality track/gravel path with a couple of short sections at the side of a grassy field (can be a little bit muddy in wet years). It's pretty much flat though - some small undulations (no more than a few metres in each case - honest!).
ENTRY Solo - £46 (Triathlon Scotand/England/Wales Members) / £52 (non-member) +4% Entry Central Service Charge
Relay - £60 (Triathlon Scotand/England/Wales Members) / £66 (non-member) +4% Entry Central Service Charge
AQUABIKE DESCRIPTION For those averse to running or unable to run due to injury this is the perfect low impact alternative. The Aquabike will follow the same swim course and bike route (see above) as the triathlon and will continue into transition (T2) as per the new BTF rules. You will then exit T2 via the run route, where you will be directed by the marshals to the finish line.
ENTRY Solo - £36 (Triathlon Scotand/England/Wales Members) / £42 (non-member) + 4% Entry Central Card Processing Fee
Relay - £46 (Triathlon Scotand/England/Wales Members) / £52 (non-member) + 4% Entry Central Card Processing Fee
