• Stirling Triathlon & Stirling Aquabike

    The 2020 Stirling Triathlon will be a fun, participant & spectator friendly event set in the grounds of the University of Stirling, with stunning backdrops such as the Wallace Monument and the Ochil Hills.
    It will repeat the format of the 2019 Stirling Triathlon which was very well received by many, including those new to the sport and experienced Triathletes.
    Many will be pleased to know that there will also be an Aquabike event. Previously, this was hosted alongside the Stirling Aquathlon, but venue conditions at the time of the 2019 Aquathlon meant that it was not safe to go ahead.

    2020 Stirling Triathlon:
    There are three different adult Triathlon events (from ages 15 and up (ages 15, 16 & 17 must have parental consent)) suitable for all abilities and all levels of fitness, from complete novice to club and elite triathletes, as well as charity and fun competitors.

    The 2020 Stirling Triathlon format will contain 3 awarding categories:
    – Single Triathlon (swim/bike/run)
    – Double Triathlon (swim/bike/run swim/bike/run)

    The bike will be a 14km draft illegal loop which is suitable for road, mountain and time trial bikes and will be on open roads.
    The run will be a 2.5km single loop around Airthrey Loch.
    For those doing the double and the relay, there will be an interval between the 1st and the 2nd of the swim/bike/run’s. Relay teams can be of 2 or 3 members each taking a stint of the disciplines to suit their strengths and can switch disciplines for the 2nd swim/bike/run.
    For example the swimmer in the 1st swim/bike/run, can be the runner in the 2nd swim/bike/run.
    Under BTF rule 23.3,a, TriStar 2 (Ages 11-12 [as of 31st December 2020]) can compete within the Relay Triathlon taking on either the swim(300m) or run(2500m) leg within a relay team.
