The 2017 MacQueen Bros Mid Argyll Sprint Triathlon

24 Sep 2017

2016 Rio Olympics seems ike a dim and distant memory, but the 2017 season is now in full swing and there are lots of incident and drama in the eary races. However, the GB and Triathlon Scotland Triatheletes are still putting in great performances in all distances with familiar names on the podium Holland, Stanford and Hall and Alistair dominating the 70.3 dojo, and David MacNamee crushing 70.3.

The MacQueen Bros Mid Argyll Triathlon is all about the transition fun buzz and the guarantee of the wind at your back on the bike and run course (for at least 50%!). So if you want to be on the start line make sure you guarantee a place with an early entry!

As always we have an extensive prize category list and individual discipline awards, including the all important T1 & T2 prizes!

The MacQueen Bros Mid Argyll Triathlon is a sporting event which aspires to promotes local community participation balanced with the right degree of sporting competition.  Resulting in an opportunity for novices to line up with some of the best age group Triathletes from across Scotland.
