20 Oct 2016:  Tri Angus Limited is delighted to confirm that the 2017 Montrose Triathlon will take place on Sunday, 4 June 2017.  Entries for the event will open on Monday, 16 January 2017.

The event continues to grow from year-to-year with over 300 people registered for the 2016 event, the highest number to-date, and entries selling out within 4 days of opening January.  The event again received very positive feedback and organisers Tri Angus Ltd look to continue to build on this.


The Montrose Triathlon, which will be in its 4th year, continues to attract a real mix of abilities from complete beginner (46% of 2016’s participants were taking part in their very first triathlon) to seasoned triathletes.


The event will again be based at the superbly equipped Montrose Sports Centre.  Participants will have the option of taking part in either the novice or sprint distances.  The novice event is ideal for those new to triathlon while the sprint distance is for those with a little more experience or who are a little more daring!  Full details of the routes and the distances involved in the swim, bike and run are available on the Tri Angus website (

Entries are expected to fill up quickly so anyone who would like to take part is encouraged to sign up early to avoid disappointment.


Maggie Lawrie, Tri Angus Director, commented “We are pleased to confirm the date for the 2017 Montrose Triathlon.  Last year’s event was hugely successful on so many levels, we really have been blown away again.  Even the weather was on our side!


“We are delighted that the event continues to attract a large number of participants from Angus as well as other local authority areas.  The bike route in particular shows off some of the stunning countryside Angus has on offer and we hope that the event will help encourage more people to visit Montrose and surrounding areas.


“We were delighted with and very grateful for the support we received from local businesses, as well as all the volunteers, without both of which the event could not run.  We are keen to speak to anyone who would be interested in supporting the event again and they can get in touch with me via  We have a number of sponsor packages available with many benefits for businesses including guaranteed places at what is expected to be another sell-out event.”
