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.
