750m Swim in the spectacular Loch Tay.
The swim and T1 are based at Taymouth Marina on the shores of Loch Tay. Taymouth Marina is dominated by breathtaking views of Ben Lawers and the surrounding landscape. The stunning scenery, coupled with an impressive range of on-site facilities, making Taymouth Marina the ideal swim and T1 venue.

The swim will be a single 750m lap. There may be multiple wave starts in quick succession depending on entry numbers. We will post details of this on the website and in the athlete briefing shortly before race weekend.

20km Road Cycle on quiet roads of Highland Perthshire.

Leaving Taymouth Marina, the Bike course takes athletes on a spectacular journey into the breath-taking Highland Perthshire Countryside. After leaving Kenmore village you will undertake a single clockwise lap of Drummond Hill on quiet country lanes before riding alongside the tranquil Loch Tay and back to T2 in the Kenmore Recreation Ground.

T1 (Taymouth Marina Watersports Centre) and T2 (Taymouth Castle) are very near each other – approx. 1 km apart and easily walkable. Nice and easy!

5km Run in the grounds of beautiful Taymouth Castle.

​The run course will take athletes on a multi lap course through the stunning grounds of Taymouth Castle. ​

Event car parking will be located at Taymouth Castle. Event Briefing will be at the Swim Start shortly before the race begins.

The distanced between T1 and T2 is approx. 1000m. T1 and T2 will be open from 07:30 on Saturday morning to allow for Run Kit to be dropped into T2 and your bike racked into T1.
