What is Non Competitive? In 2020, we’re trialling a a non-competitive (untimed) opt-in wave at the Short Fast Durty Tri in 2020 alongside the regular competitive/timed waves. This is in response to feedback that some participants are interested in the challenge, but not so interested in being timed, or being listed in results. You will still be issued with a dibber (for safety purposes), but we won’t publish your result, we will just list you as finishing. Just select the Non-Competitive option on Entry Central to sign up to this wave.
A Greener Aviemore Triathlon!
- Feed station cups are our biggest source of waste. So we’re stopping using them. Completely. There will be no cups at feed stations. You need to bring your own or, if you don’t have one, we’ll provide you with a re-usable soft folding cup with your race entry in 2020. You will need to carry this with you and use it on the course if you wish to use feed stations.
- T-shirts: some of you love them and some of you don’t. If you’re the latter, we’ll now give you the option to donate the cost of your event tee to our chosen charity, The John Muir Trust. You can make this selection when you sign up via Entry Central by choosing No T-Shirt. Your entry cost will remain the same and we’ll donate the equivalent value to The John Muir Trust.
We appreciate your help in ensuring our events make minimal impact on the environment.
