You are permitted to swim in Loch Tay prior to race day, however you must be courteous and notify staff at the Taymouth Marina Water Sports Centre that you are going to swim. They may direct you to an area if other water sports are going on at that time.
You are permitted to cycle the bike course or run the run course any time during the build up to the race. Please be aware that you are visiting an area of outstanding natural beauty and we ask you to respect that whether training or racing in Highland Perthshire. Please do not litter or abuse other road users during training or racing in the area.
There will be substantial safety cover on the loch to guide and provide safety cover.
All competitors should please note: United Kingdom inland waters are not completely safe for swimming, although risks of disease are low and risks of serious infection are minute (we have NO concerns about Loch Tay, but do take your safety seriously). A swimmer who may be susceptible to infection through immune suppression, are advised not to enter the event if he or she is not in good health at the time of swimming.
Water quality testing will be carried out in the 4 weeks lead up to the event. Our final microbiological readings will be posted on www.aberfeldytriathlon.com the week prior to the event.
Our Medical team is being lead by The Scottish Ambulance service. Onsite during the event will be Paramedics, Doctors and First Aiders all highly experienced at supplying the highest calibre of comprehensive medical cover at a range of sporting events.
We ask that all athletes show a sensible approach towards entering the event and if you feel at all unwell either prior, during or after the event you either withdraw and or seek assistance from the Medical Team.
