Organiser's Description

The Triathlon Scotland National Standard Distance Triathlon Championships - Sunday 1st September 2019

hosted by Fleet Feet Triathletes

Knockburn Loch site is man-made and located below Kerloch Hill, near Banchory, AB31 6LL. It was developed several years ago by one of the Fleet Feet triathletes as a free-for-all sporting facility. As a result, it is ideal for open water triathlons.

Standard Distances are:

Registration 8am - 9.15am.  Race starts 10am. 

Race manual available here

The standard event is open to competitors who are Triathlonscotland Junior 2/B category and older (i.e. minimum 17 years old on 31-Dec-18).

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 Triathlon Scotland here.
