Montrose Open Water Standard Triathlon

08 Sep 19

Organiser's Description

Hello and a huge welcome to the inaugural Montrose Open Water Standard Triathlon brought to you by Montrose Triathlon Club. 

A first of its kind in Montrose this standard distance open water event is a definite for your calendar. The event is to be based at the beautiful Montrose Basin in the heart of Angus guaranteeing amazing views. Swim in the idyllic, tidal, seawater Basin at slack tide, followed by a reasonably flat, two lap cycle round the Basin. Finish with a run alongside the Basin. The event is open to athletes of all abilities. 

 

The 1500m swim in the Basin will be in a counter-clockwise, well-marked and marshalled circuit. The start will be a deepwater start in which you’ll need to tread water. On exit of the water, you’ll be in transition within 20m. 

 

Wetsuits are compulsory.

Upon exiting transition, you will be directed onto the counter clockwise two lap cycle route. The A92, A935 & A934 are main roads so should be expected to be reasonably busy. Once off of those roads, you will be on quiet country roads with amazing views. When on the second lap, you’ll be directed at a well signed quiet right-hand turn.

Upon exit of transition you’ll be directed onto the out and back run. The run is mainly on pavement (which is narrow in places) until the right-hand turn at Maryton onto quiet country road. Continue to turnaround point and head back same way as you came (back up that hill). Finish and give yourself a pat on the back.
