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.
Championship Race Prizes:
Volunteers. To make this event happen we are looking for volunteers to help on the day of the event. If you would like to support us and cheer the athletes along either as a marshal, during registration or at the finish line, get in touch at email@example.com.

Refund and Cancellation Policy
By entering you are confirming that you have read and understood the following policy. In the unfortunate event you need to withdraw from the race please could you let the organisers know at the earliest opportunity. At the organiser's discretion, 75% refunds (minus credit card processing fees) will be issued to any competitor who withdraws from the event more than 28 days before the event. Withdrawals after that date will receive a similar refund if, and only if the competitor's place can be filled from a waiting list. No Refunds will be issued after the event closing date.
We will endeavour to make any information on race modifications public as quickly as possible, but we will always follow BTF guidelines on weather and modifications to race timings or distances may occur which are outside of our control. We reserve the right to make changes to the race distances, format in line with BTF guidance.
If for any reason the race needs to be cancelled in advance (like a global pandemic for example!) we will refund you the race entry minus admin fee's. We have lived through some crazy times, and as a small team of voluntary race organisers we have had quite a journey of changes to what the 2021 race was to look like, we hope that 2022 will see some normality but please bear with us as we navigate ever changing guidance and regulations.
We do not offer a facility to exchange entry places prior to the event under any circumstances. This also applies to people arriving at the event wishing to take another person's place. Identities are carefully checked at Event Registration and any "substitutes" will be rejected.
By entering any Fleet Feet race, entrants give the organisers clear and positive consent to use limited personal data for the specific purposes of organising the race (start lists, age categories, published results, timing systems, emergency contact details, relevant medical data, race information, pre-post race information). Your contact information only will also be passed to British Triathlon as part of the event permitting process.
