The Duke Triathlon Weekend

21 Sep 2019 - 22 Sep 2019

Organiser's Description

 

THE DUKE TRIATHLON is an award-winning triathlon in Stirlingshire, Scotland!

 

We are very proud of our “Most enjoyable triathlon in Scotland in 2018” award and excited to announce this year’s event. Watch out here for further events news coming soon.

The Duke Triathlon is the perfect triathlon for the novice. Combining a fast, fun and potentially filthy route to complete your season. If you are a seasoned triathlete already this will present the perfect chance to combine a family holiday with a “surprise!” opportunity race.

This year we have 2 distances (with more to come):

1) The Wee Duke: 400m Open Water swim, 18.5km cycle and 2.5 km run

2) The Big Duke: 1.5 km Open Water Swim, 37km cycle and 8 km run

 

We designed the Duke to be a beautiful, accessible race where “everyday” and “hardcore” athletes can find a place to play!

It’s not an easy course by any means, but we wanted to provide a season closer where people had the opportunity to enjoy themselves with their families and friends, in a spectacular setting.

If you’ve not heard of Tigh Mor then have a wee google before you sign up – you are going to be hard pushed to find a more beautiful and scenic backdrop to a triathlon anywhere in the world. Think how amazing your finishing photo will look!

We are working closely with Triathlon Scotland to make sure this event meets the standards that everyone expects of Scottish Triathlon:

The Big Duke - Olympic Triathlon

The Duke Triathlon is the perfect Olympic distance triathlon for experienced and first timers. It is in the main off road which gives the opportunity for traffic free fun. We will be offering other opportunities for all of the family to get involved; which will give a chance to combine a family holiday with a “surprise!” opportunity to race.

 Distances are 1.5km Swim, 37km cycling, 8km running!

 

The Wee Duke - Novice Triathlon

The Duke Triathlon is the perfect triathlon for the novice, a fast, fun race to cut your teeth on or if you are a grizzled triathlete already the perfect chance to combine a family holiday with a “surprise!” opportunity race. The routes are mainly off road and will be challenging but doable.

Distances are 400m Swim, 18.5 km cycling, 2.5 km running!

 

 

Kids Opportunity

We have also decided to hold a free kid’s run race of 1.2km after the main event finishes. We will manage entries on the day for this informal event, where completion rather than competition will be the focus; therefore we will not have official timing.  

We want this Duke event to be as friendly as possible, why not involve your family and make it part of a great weekend.

The route on forest tracks is not suitable for road bikes - we recommend using a Mountain Bike, Cross or Hybrid! We designed the Duke to be a beautiful, accessible race where “everyday” as well as “hardcore” athletes can find a place to play!
