Aviemore Triathlon

20 Sep 2020

Organiser's Description

Welcome to the online entry pages for the Aviemore Triathlon - 20th September 2020

 

The races at Aviemore Triathlon are run over two courses;

Long Hard Durty (Solo race is the Triathlon Scotland National Cross Triathlon Champs 2020)

1000m Loch Swim (wetsuits compulsary)

18km Technical MTB Bike course (all off-road, cyclocross bikes not permitted)

9km Trail Run (with a bit of open moorland and trackless forest thrown in!)

Entries welcome from Solos and Relay teams. A challenging and spectacular off-road race for the experienced, and anyone up for a tough day out!

 

Short Fast Durty

500m Loch Swim (wetsuits compulsary)

12km Moderate Mountain Bike Course (forest roads, good tracks, small sections of fun singletrack) 

5km Trail Run (with a bit of trackless forest thrown in!)

Entries welcome from Solos and Relay Teams

The Short, Fast, Durty is an ideal introduction to off-road racing, and open water swimming - novices more than welcome. However, it's also a stiff challenge for those wanting to go fast!.

**As an experiment, we are offering a non-competitive (i.e. untimed) opt-in wave at the Short Fast Durty Tri in 2020 alongside the regular competitive/timed waves. 

 

Sustainability (Important Bit!)

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) 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 (for 2020 this is The John Muir Trust. 

 

Aviemore Triathlon - LONG HARD DURTY - 20th SEPT 2020

 

DESCRIPTION "The Long Hard Durty", the Standard distance race will be a stiff challenge on a tough course in a spectacular location. The loch has been chosen for its superb water quality and spectacular surroundings. Coupled with fantastic MTB trails (including some hand crafted Red and Black standard singletrack) in the forest, this is one of the very best locations in the UK for off-road racing.

ACCOMMODATION  Please see the accommodation tab on the website for details, including on-site options : www.aviemoretriathlon.com

REGISTRATION There will be opportunities to register on the afternoon on Sat 19th Sept, and early on 20th Sept. Keep your eyes posted on the event website and the emailed race briefing for the up to date timings and schedule. Collect your race number, swim cap, any final details etc. Bikes must be racked on your numbered slot at the lochside before the Race Briefing.

BRIEFING Attendance is compulsary. Approx 0845hrs in Transition Area at the loch side.

RULES Normal Triathlon Scotland rules will apply – see www.triathlonscotland.org for further details.

We're also REALLY heavy on littering anywhere on the course or car park. Please comply as we depend on the goodwill of our landowner hosts. If you're spotted, this is an instant DQ offence - you've been warned!.

START Approximately 0900hrs.  Precise times to be confirmed at Registration.

FORMAT It is your responsibility to make sure you turn in the correct place, do the right number of laps, and follow the course. We’ll do our best to place signs, markers and marshals to keep you right!.

Long Hard Durty

1000m Open Water Swim (wetsuits compulsory). Two laps, deep water start.

18km (ish) Off-Road Mountain Bike. This will be on a combination of tracks, forest roads and paths and singletrack (including Red & Black standard natural trails) – if you feel the need to walk a bit, no problem, we’d prefer you stay in one piece!, but please walk off the racing line and allow others to pass

9km Off-Road Run. It's almost (follow the signs people!) an out-and-back course on forest tracks, open hillside and trackless forest. Nice. Except the nasty bits we might throw in again this year.

 Aviemore Triathlon - SHORT FAST DURTY - 20th SEPT 2020

 Aviemore Triathlon - SHORT FAST DURTY - 20th SEPT 2020 - **NON-COMPETITIVE WAVE**

We're trying an experiment.... we've seen some feedback that some potential participants are interested in the challenge, but not so interested in being timed, or being listed in results.

So: we're offering a NON-COMPETITIVE wave at the Short Fast Durty race in 2020. You will be issued with a dibber (for safety purposes), but we won't publish your result, we will just list you as finishing.
