The 2018 MacQueen Bros Mid Argyll Sprint Triathlon

23 Sep 2018

Who remembers Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games? The 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth games blew open the 2018 race season. Who was not inspired by Marc Austin bronze medal the overall performance of the Scottish team in swimming, cycling and athletics. 

GB and Triathlon Scotland Triatheletes are still putting in great performances in all distances with familiar names on the podium with the stand out performance of  2017 being arguably David MacNamee 3rd place in Kona.

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 bag with an early entry - we were sold out in 10 days last year!

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.
