Road to the Isles Standard Traighathlon

10 Sep 2022

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

Swim, ride and run against a backdrop of one of Scotland’s most iconic land and seascapes

Triaghathlon 2019 seems like such a long time ago - and in many ways the world today is slightly changed  - but not Triaghathlon.  We're coming back bigger, better, stronger & wiser.  The Mallaig Pool & Leisure Road to the Isles Events Team are delighted to be setting down the challenge for 2022 and inviting you to rise to meet it. On Saturday 10th September 2022, after a break of three years, we'll deliver a unique, challenging and affordable series of multiple distance triathlons along the stunning Road to the Isles. This wild and rugged natural playground will not disappoint with both novice and experienced triathletes catered for!

Base camp is beautiful Traigh Beach, sandwiched between the coastal towns of Arisaig and Morar, with breath-taking views to the Small Isles of Rhum, Eigg & the Cuillins of Skye.  Spectacular white beaches, dramatic shorelines and the changing colours of the Atlantic Ocean are set against a backdrop of brooding majestic mountains.

This amazing location, coupled with a great spectator friendly course, make the Traighathlon Series the ideal sports destination for the entire family. By hosting a series of multiple distance triathlons we hope to cater for the complete cross-section of competitors from first time triathletes through to national team athletes who really want to push boundaries!

The day will be split into three concurrent events of varying distances:

  • The Try a Tri at Traigh (£25): This event is suitable for complete novices and first-timers and incorporates a 400m heated indoor swim, a 10km bike ride and a 2.5km run.
  • The Sprint Traighathlon (£35): This event is suitable for both beginners and experienced triathletes. The sprint incorporates a 750m open water swim, a 20km bike ride and a 5km run.
  • The Standard Traighathlon (£45): This event is only suitable for experienced triathletes and incorporates a 1500m open water swim, a 40km bike ride and a 10km run.

The event can be completed by individuals or as relay teams where each team member completes a single discipline.

Top news is we've taken the decision to freeze the 2019 ticket price.  Although it's essential we don't lose money putting on events, its more about taking part and just as important you join us.  With this in mind, and with a mind to escalating living and fuel costs we know that destination Triathlons are expensive.  By holdling prices we want to make sure you make it - then we all win.  Also, to keep costs down, in line with our sustainability and eco-friendly commitment, and to better manage waste, this year we're not offering a t-shirt at sign-up.  You can however choose to add a t-shirt when you register for £14.95.  At sign up you can also add a commemorative Road to the Isles Buff for £10 [RRP £18].  The stunning single image of our beautiful coastline and the Samll Isles was taken by local photographer, Julie Bryce.

Mallaig Pool & Leisure is a social enterprise run by a dedicated team and volunteers from the community.  Road to the Isles Events is run by Mallaig Pool & Leisure, and all profit from the Triaghathlon will go directly towards sustaining this small user friendly community leisure centre.  Thank you so much for your support.  Sign up, tell your friends, bring your family and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday 10th September 2022.  Let the training begin.
