Forfar Triathlon

22 Jul 2018

Welcome to the first Forfar Triathlon delivered by Tri Angus Limited. We are organising two races on Sunday, 22 July 2018. These are:

  1. Novice race ideal for those new to triathlon, and
  2. Sprint race for those with a little more experience or who are a little more daring!

There is a limit of 240 participants for the day and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  Race entries will open on Monday, 15 January 2018.

The races are based at the new Forfar Community Campus.  The swim will take place in the superb 6 lane swimming pool. The bike route works its way through Forfar before introducing you to some of the local countryside. Finally, participants will enjoy some stunning scenery on the run route as it hugs the banks of Forfar Loch. The distances are shown below.
