The cafe will be open on site to provide light lunches, snacks, delicious cakes and speciality teas and coffees for spectators.

Please note that dogs are not allowed to be walked on site under any circumstances, if you must bring your four legged friend with you then they must remain in the car at all times (no toilet breaks on site). There is a small car park to the left of the entrance where you can park up, and walk your dog if they have to accompany you. The exception being Guide Dogs / Special assistance dogs.

Race License. A race license provides you with insurance cover during racing and training with triathlon clubs. They are either available for a year from the governing body triathlon scotland, or race by race. Those people without a yearly race license, pay a higher entry fee which effectively provides them with a race day only license. You may join Triathlon Scotland on the day of the race, if you are not already a member. See information about joining British Triathlon here.

Race Prizes: Coming Soon!

Volunteers. To make this event happen we are looking for volunteers to help on the day of the event. If you would like to support us and cheer the athletes along either as a marshal, during registration or at the finish line, get in touch at fleetfeet.events@gmail.com.
