Organiser's Description

Foxlake Triathlon - Friday 5th July 2019

Brought to you by the team behind the Craggy Island Triathlon, Aviemore Triathlon and The Dramathon. 

This race will be broadcast LIVE by The Adventure Show on BBC Scotland. How exciting :)

The venue and course is newcomer friendly. We very much welcome (and would love to see) entries from both newbies and more experienced triathletes. You certainly do NOT need to be "elite" to race this one - the emphasis is very much on fun, though we also do expect some folks at the pointy-end to take it a bit more seriously!. 

 

FORMAT 

This is off-road Triathlon like you've never, ever, seen it before!.

The race will start in waves - most likely Male and Female depending on entries, see below for the indicative timetable.

The course will be short - we're aiming for winning times of around 40-45 minutes. Yep, that's for the whole lot..... Swim, Bike and Run. Take it as fast or as easy as you like - on the rivet, or in the comfort zone. Either way, this should be fun.

The race will be televised. You might even get the chance to say 'hello Mum!'.

The course will be:

 - approx 200m Open Water Swim (don't worry, the lake is shallow, so will be warm enough)

- approx 6km Mountain Bike (nothing wildy technical, but will be tricksy enough to catch you out if you hit it hard!). Two Laps, passing through Transition Area at the end of each lap.

- approx 3km Trail Run. Two Laps, passing through Transition Area at the end of each lap.

LOCATION 

Foxlake Adventures Wakeboard Park - a privately owned watersports centre with great facilities for triathlon, including a beautiful clean open water lake surrounded by grassland and forest. The courses are entirely contained within the grounds, and are completely off-road, so are nice and safe (as well as being in a really pleasant location - not that you'll be able to see it!).

Foxlake is next to Dunbar in East Lothian, so is easily accessible via the A1 (literally seconds away!) from the Central Belt of Scotland, North East of England, and the Scottish Borders. 

The on-site facilities are superb, and include a cafe, toilets and showers. There's loads for family and spectators to do including Wakeboarding, Foxfall ropes obstacle course, Disk Golf and just mucking around in the woods.
