Nairn Sprint and Novice Triathlons

17 Sep 2017

The Nairn Triathlon, brought to you by Triathlon Inverness, will take place on Sunday 17th September, 2017 at Nairn Leisure. With beautiful bike and run courses through the Nairnshire countryside and with views over the Moray Firth to greet you at the finish line, whichever race you choose we hope it will be an enjoyable event for all.

 

There are two race distances for you to choose from: Novice and Sprint. Each distance has a split transition.

 

Just trying triathlon for the first time? Then the Novice race is perfect. The race will start with 16 lengths of the 25m pool, take you out on a 10km cycle, following country roads east of the town then a flat 3 km run along the beach front. Aimed at beginners to multi-sport, the gentle course and short distances can be taken at your own pace, breast-stroke and walking is allowed! As this race is about participation and individual challenges there will be random prizes for finishers!

 

Wanting to push yourself that extra mile? The “Sprint” distance is sure to challenge your competitive side. A 750m pool swim, 25km ride and 5km run across a flat course should have you clocking good times. There will be prizes for fastest times in each age-group.

 

In the unfortunate event you need to withdraw from the race please could you let the organisers know at the earliest oppertunity. At the organisers discretion, 75% refunds (minus entry central fees) will be issued to any competitor who withdraws from the event more than 28 days before the event. Withdrawls after that date will not be refundable.   

 

Any changes to swim times must be notified to the organisers by the 1st of September.
