Bowhill Duathlon – Long

LONG (expected winning time 40 mins Run + 40 mins MTB Bike) .

Back again for its 16th year, this is a very popular series of low-key, back-to-basics off-road Duathlons in the Scottish Borders. What better way to motivate your training over the dark winter months, test your progress, or simply have good muddy, wet and snowy fun.

Selkirk MTB Enduro

MTB Enduro as you’ve never seen it before…..!

OK, we’re not competing to be the gnarliest, raddest and baddest Enduro out there. Plenty of others are after that crown. But if you fancy sweet, rideable, flowing trails to test yourself on, step right up. Selkirk Enduro – is the sweet spot between old-skool Marathon and super-gnarr Enduro.

Craggy Island Triathlon

Craggy Island Triathlon

Unique in the UK and probably the World, the Craggy Island Triathlon will have you swimming across the sound from the mainland to an island to start your race. How cool is that?

The island in this case is the rugged spectacular and completely unspoilt Isle of Kerrera, just off the West coast of Scotland near the busy town and harbour of Oban.

Foxlake Night Triathlon

The World's First* Night Triathlon – back in 2018 (hopefully!)

Yep, you read that right. A Triathlon. In the Dark. Will this be the bestest thing since sliced bread, or a total disaster? We've no idea. But let's give it a go and see what happens.

*We think. A cursory and half-hearted Google didn't throw anything obvious up.
