The Pool swim will be based in the Kelso Swimming Pool, Kelso. The swim order will be dictated in waves based on submitted ‘estimated swim times'. The transition will be sited in the car park adjacent to the pool.

There will be no parking at the actual centre as this will be closed off. Parking is available in Edenside School car park, Edenside Surgery car park and Kelso High School. All of these locations are a short distance from
the swimming pool.

Last year’s events in Kelso saw over 130 people compete in the Sprint and Come & Tri events. With many
Triathletes swimming, cycling and running towards the finish line for the very first time.
In 2017 Sprint event, Scott Robertson of Edinburgh’s JETS Triathlon Club clinched first place in the male
category, whilst local veteran Katrona Methven took her third series win on the bounce in the female vintage
section. This event poses a great challenge for newcomers and seasoned Triathletes alike.
Nestled in the heart of the Scottish Borders, Kelso is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The cycle routes at the Kelso events span up towards the quaint village of Ednam then up to sleepy Stitchel, then back down towards the town. The events’ running route takes competitors from the historic town centre up towards the golf course along croft park and back again.

It’s already easy to see why Kelso is Bordering on Brilliant…. And this is without even mentioning that our
routes take participants past the boundaries of Floors Castle and Kelso Abbey – built circa 1128!
