MTB Marathon/British Champs - great new Sponsors!
We're really excited to be able to announce that Shimano and Pearl Izumi are on-board as sponsors of the Selkirk MTB Marathon/British MTB Marathon Champs. Thanks guys!. They'll be helping us out with great prizes on the day - more details soon.....
Selkirk MTB Marathon is hotting up!
As an event that has been repeatedly voted “the best MTB Marathon” and been designed by Peter Laing, creator of the world famous 7-Stanes trails, this is sure to be a fantastically enjoyable set of courses.
Aid stations and safety cover will be fully provided and if you feel like cooling off after, the swimming pool will be open to you for free. Free car parking, camping and showers at Selkirk Leisure Centre will also be available on Friday and Saturday night.
On the evening of Friday 9th May Selkirk High Street will transform into a biking hotbed as cyclists compete in a range of activities including roller racing and an attempt by team 3SIXTY to break the record for the “World’s Longest Bike Stoppie”. The record was last broken by Jim DeChamp (USA) in Utah in 2008. Perhaps 2014 will be the lucky year?
Braverunner - Open for Entries!
Braverunner - you and whose army?.
Raise your Standard running against the opposition at the world's first Contra-circumnavigation Trail Running race.
Ensure your inflatable pikes and claymores are ready, and are twinned with ridiculous and impractical fancy dress as you race over 10km of great trails and historical battlefield locations. Expect to crawl through culverts, wade through water, and march through mud.
Sat 27th Sept - Etal Village, Flodden, Northumberland

Yay!. We've managed to sort out Aviemore Triathlon for 2014!. Race date will be Sunday 31st August, and we're back at the amazing Badaguish Centre and Loch Morlich. This one sold out last year, so get your entry fingers ready. ENTRIES NOW OPEN - CLICK HERE!
Foxlake Triathlon - new for 2014
Off-road Triathlon as you've never, ever, seen it before. We think this is a first for the UK, if not the World!.
3 great races over one short course (200m Swim, 2km MTB, 1km Run).
- Solo competitors race the course several times in various heats and rounds over the day until we have an overall winner.
- Or get your mates together and race the 4 x 4 Team Relay - a hugely exciting new format.
- Novices, Tristars and Youths race over a single lap. Really accessible for newbies because of the short distances, and a great (and rare) chance for younger athletes to race an Open Water Triathlon.

Celtman! - Athlete GPS Live Tracking
We're really excited to be working with Celtman! Extreme Scottish Triathlon on something new. We think its a first for a UK Triathlon....
Every athlete will have a GPS tracker device (these are owned by Durty Events, and will be available for hire at other events - contact us if you're interested), so you'll be able to sit at home, or on your mobile device and spectate your favourite athletes as they progress around the course.
The link will go live from www.cxtri.com on race day, but in the meantime, here's a couple of sneaky peak screenshot previews....
New Celtman! Film Released
The new film of the 2012 Celtman! Extreme Scottish Triathlon has been released, and it's a corker. A really well made, beautiful and inspirational film. It is professionally produced by a Greek crew that supported one of the athletes - it's more certainly not 'run-of-the-mill' Go Pro footage. Enjoy!.
