Ample parking is available at the Leisure Centre.
Selkirk is a town steeped in history and it happens to be the location for our only Standard Triathlon event.
Last year saw 88 competitors take on the Standard Event’s full distance routes spanning nearly 30 miles.
This event is geared towards Triathletes of all ages and abilities, last year’s youngest competitor was 18 and
the eldest was 62. The event’s bike run takes participants along the A708 to General’s Bridge into scenic
Bowhill estate, then on to Ettickbridge End, over the “swire”, (a long and challenging climb) followed immediately by the tricky descent into the Yarrow valley. The route leads back on to the A708 and a fast section back towards Selkirk.
The run route is a flat, fast out & back route alongside the river before joining the A7 to Lindean and then
the bridge over the River Tweed.
