Cairngorm Adventure Triathlon

With 50 mins before I leave for the Breweries (gulp!), I thought I would quickly tell you all about the Cairngorm Adventure Triathlon (CAT). Andrea did it with a friend last weekend.
More details can be found here:

Compared to what Stuart probably did in the day, this is a more relaxed affair but in a beautiful part of Scotland. It is based around Loch Morlich in Glen More (northern Cairngorms) and encompasses 3 kms canoeing around Loch Morlich, 25 kms mountain biking around the area and then a final 5 kms run around Loch Morlich.
The route map is:
CAT route

I did the route with Andrea last month and it is a lot of fun and nothing is really difficult. If anybody knows the mountain bike trails around Rothiemurchus, they are not technical at all – nice and fast.

Anyway Andrea (and Lisa) did the course in 2:30:05 and were 5th in the ladies categories.

It would be fun maybe if a few of us did this next year.

anyway – time for some food

      Well done Andrea!

      The triathlon looks great. As my swimming is on a par with a cat wearing a divers belt,
      I am always on the lookout for canoe-cycle-run triathlons. I would definitely be up for it next year.

      Duncan.
