St. Mary's Loch Standard Triathlon
22 Jul 17
DATE - Saturday 22nd July 2017
DESCRIPTION For a change, we're staying on-road for a race, though this is rapidly becoming one of the 'classic' Scottish race. 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!.
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!).
