locHARD MAN Triathlons (Scottish Triathlon Series round 1)
20 May 2018
LocHARD Man Triathlons : Sunday 20th May 2018
Middle, Standard & Sprint Distance Triathlons
LocHARD Man will be based at the MacDonald Forest Hills Hotel in Kinlochard near Aberfoyle. FK8 3TL.
We are moving the Loch loMAN date into June with LocHardman taking its date and honours as the cold start to your triathlon season. Loch Ard is a smaller and shallower body of water compared to Lomond. As such the water tends to warm up a wee bit quicker than her bigger neighbour.
The bike courses will be CLOCKWISE. Yes this means a few right turns, however we feel it is more fun for you to do the taller of the 2 sides and climb straight out from Aberfoyle. This should split the packs up nicely and make for safer, spread out riding around the course.
The run courses are still being confirmed. Once we have agreed the route(s) with local land owners we will update you. Do not expect the run to be flat like ArranMAN or Loch loMAN... but we won't send you up Ben Venue either.
Middle Distance: 7am start
1900m swim in Loch Ard
92km bike (twice over Dukes Pass)
Standard Distance: 7.40am start
1500m swim in Loch Ard
52km bike (once over Dukes Pass)... yes it is a bit longer than normal Standard bikes... but tough.
Sprint Distance: 8.15am start
20km bike (almost to the top of Dukes Pass and back)
Equipment: Wet suits and cycle helmets are obligatory and neoprene swim caps recommended. The use of neoprene gloves and footwear in the swim is allowed
Nutrition: 1 feed station on cycle. Probabaly at top of Dukes Pass.
