Aberfeldy Triathlon Festival 2020

14 Aug 2020 - 16 Aug 2020

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

Organiser's Description


Alongside the triathlonscotland National Middle Championships we are proud to be hosting the British Triathlon Middle Distance Triathlon Championships for 2020, this race will provide the final opportunity in 2020 for home nations members to take home a coveted British Triathlon Title. British Championship events represent the top level of competition in the UK giving triathletes the best opportunity to race to their full potential in the chase for British Championships titles. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will be awarded in each age group. Remember, athletes can only be eligible for British Championship Medals if their membership is valid no later than by 5pm, 3 working days prior to the championships i.e. 5pm Wednesday 12th August.

Swim in the crystal-clear waters of Loch Tay, Bike in the most spectacular Highland Perthshire Scenery and Run in the beautiful Grounds of Taymouth Castle, what’s not to like. The Middle-Distance Triathlon will provide the cornerstone of the Aberfeldy Multi Sports Festival weekend.

Hydration partner, Active Root, will be joining us for the festival weekend and there will be Active Root bottles on the bike course as well as plenty of Active Root stations elsewhere. If you're already a fan they will be providing refills of old tubs for £15 (40% less than RRP!) 

Weekend Programme:

LOCH TAY SPRINT TRIATHLON - Saturday 15th August 2020

Set in the beautiful Highland Perthshire region, these great races take in the cool, clear waters of Loch Tay, challenging roads over the shoulder of Schiehallion (Middle Distance race only - the Sprint uses quiet and gently undulating roads around the Tay Valley), and the grounds of the spectacular Taymouth Castle.

A real test in an amazing place - in short, THE classic Scottish triathlons. Are you up for the challenge?.

Aberfeldy Triathlon and Loch Tay Sprint Triathlon is organised as a collaboration between Durty Events (Craggy Island Triathlon, Strathclyde Park Triathlon, Aviemore Triathlon, Dramathon) and Richard Pearson (Scottish Triathlon scene stalwart, organiser of 2014 British Triathlon Event of the Year).


We're trying to raise our sustainability game in 2020 and beyond. Yes, it's small stuff, but it's a start, and every bit helps. There are two main changes to the way we're running events we want you to be aware of, and need your collaboration on please;

a) Cups: feed station cups are our biggest source of waste. So we're stopping using them. Completely. Single use cups are entirely avoidable. There will be no cups at feed stations. Instead (for 2020 only), and if you need one,  we will supply you with a re-usable foldable 'soft cup' for use as part of your race entry. You will need to carry this with you and use it on the course if you wish to use feed stations.

b) T Shirts: we know many of you love and use them, so we will keep on having them as a race memento. However, we know that some of them get disposed of without ever getting used - that's a waste of resources we can avoid. So, when you enter you will have the option to choose "No T-Shirt". The cost of your entry will remain the same, and we will donate the equivalent of the cost of your T-Shirt to charity


Please see the event website - www.aberfeldytriathlon.com for race details and outline course maps. Full athlete guide will be posted on the website before the race, and emailed to entrants.
