1st of 10 Ironman distance routes confirmed for June 2014
Application accepted for the third edition of the Celtman Extreme Scottish Triathlon, taking place on June 28th 2014 in Wester Ross, Scotland. It is centred around the stunning Torridon mountains, with the 3.6km swim (or a shortened 3km swim in the last 2 editions because the water was so cold) in the water in Loch Shieldaig, bike climbs up Spidean Coire nan Clach (‘Peak of the Corrie of Stones’ in Scottish Gaelic – stands at a height of 993m) and Ruadh-stac Mòr (‘Big Red Stack’ in Scottish Gaelic – with a height of 1,010m) and a final marathon up a route includes 2000M of climbing and, being coastal is affected greatly by our varied weather.
As the organizers say ‘Make no mistake – when we say this race is extreme we mean it. Please read the race information carefully before entering as you may have to endure cold water, strong winds, driving rain and difficult coniditions on the mountain with low visibility. Or… as happened recently on the following weekend – the temperature on Beinn Eighe was 27 degrees!’
