    Stirling Adult Aquathlon 2019.

    Adults will race over 750m in the Scottish Swimming Academy pool followed by 2 clockwise laps of Airthrey Loch to make up the 5k run distance. Anyone over the age of 17 is classed as an adult.
    The course will encounter a road crossing after leaving the pool hall and via a zebra crossing which will be heavily marshalled for safety. To increase safety and add fairness to all taking part, a “Time Neutral” zone will be introduced between the post swim timing mat and the T1 entry timing mat. It will not be permitted for athletes to use this zone for anything other than to safely negotiate the road crossing.

    The course will encounter a road crossing after leaving the pool hall and via a zebra crossing which will be heavily marshalled for safety.
