LOCH loMAN Triathlons (Scottish Triathlon Series round 2)
17 Jun 2018
1 month later than usual = hopefully warmer water ;-)
Year four of Middle, Standard & Sprint Distance Triathlons on the Bonnie Bonnie Banks O Loch Lomond.
Sprint - 750m swim, 16km cycle, 5km run http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/685228418
Standard - 1500m swim, 42.8km cycle, 10km run http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/685247518
Middle - 1900m swim, 91km cycle, 20km run http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/685238322
The course features an open water, loch swim at Loch Lomond Shores, Balloch, followed by a bike course using the established Lomond Masters & Lomond Roads cycling clubs time trial routes of A82 onto Haul Rd & the steep Glen Fruin Hill Climb.
Yes the A82 can be busy, but typically early Sunday morning it is very quiet. The course has been designed so that all turns are left, or with the one righthand turn it is at a large roundabout. All major junctions will be well marshalled and sign posted.
The run course is almost pan flat.
Following athlete feedback, this year the run course will NOT go out towards Cameron House loop, but instead it will be a less fussy out and back route along the River Leven foot path.
Also we are in discussion with the LLS management to have the finish next to the loch. However it is the same date as the Farmers Market so there is a bit of juggling to do.
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 at top of Glen Fruin, 3 feed stations on run.
