Craggy Island Triathlon
5 September, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 6 September, 2015 @ 5:00 pm£ various
You start this formidable triathlon by diving into the open sea at Oban and swimming 550m to the tiny, hilly island of Kerrera, where you peel off your wetsuit and pull on bike gear for a 15k off-roader. After that there’s an 8k run with views of Mull and the Firth of Lorn. There are two chances to compete in the triathlon, on the Saturday afternoon and the Sunday morning. For the first time this year there’s also a kids’ triathlon with a 150m swim, a 4k ride and a 2k run. The weekend is a fund-raiser for Oban Mountain Rescue Team. Prices are Â£38 for adults belonging to Triathlon Scotland (or England or Wales), Â£44 otherwise. Kids’ prices Â£20/Â£26.
