Sunday, 28 April:  On Sunday, 3 June Angus hosts the first of two pool based triathlon events in scheduled to take place this summer.  To ensure the event’s continued success, the events need the support of the local community and organisers are calling for volunteers to help at both events.

The Montrose Triathlon takes place on Sunday, 3 June 2018 with Forfar a few weeks later on Sunday, 22 July 2018. Both events are full with 240 people expected to take part on the day. The events are based at two of Angus Alive’s superb facilities – Montrose Sports Centre and Forfar Community Campus. From there, participants will swim, bike and run their way around the the towns.

No experience is necessary – full details of your role will be provided on the day. The event volunteers are vital to the success of the event – simply it cannot run without them! The volunteers make an enormous difference to the participant’s and spectator’s event experience.

There are a variety of roles available from directing participants round the course, helping with registration, to handing out the all-important finish medals! In return for your support, food and refreshments will be provided courtesy of event sponsors Scotmid.

Planning for the events is well under way, and it would be great to know that you want to come and help us at the event. Volunteers will be required from 0930 to approximately 1530. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer at either event please get in touch by e-mailing

Tri Angus Limited, a not-for-profit social enterprise, was set up to run triathlon events in Angus. After the Olympic and Commonwealth Games successes of London 2012 and Glasgow 2014, there has never been a better time to get involved with sport in general and triathlon specifically.
