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.

 

RUN COURSE

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. Since it is early in the season a TS rule excemption will be applied for to allow the use of neoprene footwear in the swim. 

Following water temperatures the past 2 year years, it is most likely that neoprene boots, hats and gloves will again be compulsory!!! GO BUY SOME NOW.

 

Nutrition: High5 gels and powder will be available at the feed stations. 1 feed station on cycle at top of Glen Fruin, 3 feed stations on run.

 

The event will be raced under Triathlon Scotland rules and sanctioning.
