Montrose Triathlon

3 Jun 2018

Welcome to the fifth Montrose Triathlon delivered by Tri Angus Limited. We are organising two races on Sunday, 3 June 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 and are expected to fill up quickly.

The races are based at Montrose Sports Centre. The swim will take place in the superb 6 lane swimming pool. The bike route then takes in some of the best views Angus has to offer as it travels out of town onto the quiet country roads. Finally, the run offers participants the chance to breathe in some fresh sea air as it negotiates the beach front. The distances are shown below.
