Well, have we found a great venue an off-road race!
In the heart of the beautiful Cairngorms National Park, and in the shadow of the Cairngorm Mountain itself – you’ll be swimming in the cool clean water of Loch Morlich, Biking on superb trails in the huge Glenmore Forest, and finishing yourself off with a scenic run through stunning woodland and open hillsides.
The Aviemore Triathon is based at the Badaguish Centre, right in the middle of the forest. The race will be raising funds for the Centre – they help people with a disability enjoy an outdoor holiday – a cause that we know you’ll agree is worth supporting 100%. We’re encouraging all entrants to raise money for the Centre either via sponsorship or donation. Read more here.
