Craggy Is­land tri

The Oban Times - - Sport -

THE CRAGGY is­land triathlon takes place this Satur­day, with its unique course start­ing in Oban.

Con­tes­tants will swim 550m across the Sound of Ker­rera, to start the cy­cle sec­tion. Around 14km long, the off-road moun­tain bike track is a com­bi­na­tion of Land Rover and quad tracks, as well as paths, and is de­scribed by event or­gan­is­ers as ‘a bit hilly’.

This in­volves one lap of the is­land, a per­fect warm-up for the 8km, off-road run.

Af­ter pass­ing the high­est point on the is­land, and pass­ing the ru­ined Gylen Castle, en­trants will re­turn to the fin­ish line at the ferry slip. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Dun­can MacEachan on 07900872588.
