Celtman Tri-athlon 2012

2012 would appear to be the year of outdoor events in the area.Views across to Torridon from Ben Damph

First off the Winter Walking weekend organised by the Torridon Hotel the 3rd-5th March.

April is the Highlander Mountain Marathon 14th & 15th April.

Then 12th May is the Bealach Beag cycle challange, this starts & ends in Shieldaig.

23rd June sees the first Celtman extreme triathlon.

1st Sept the Bealach Mor followed by another walking weekend 8-10th Sept out of the Torridon Hotel.

The Celtman is more of an Iron man event. “Centered around the stunning Torridon mountains we will take you on an adventure unlike any other. CELTMAN! is a long distance EXTREME triathlon.  Please take note – this race is HARD.  The distances are Ironlike and the terrain severe.”

“You will be expected to complete a sea-loch swim, an arduous road cycle and a mountainous run. This will require endurance, stamina, great bike handling skills and off-road running experience. Please do not consider entering this race if you question your own ability to do anything mentioned above.”

We are expecting our guests (we are fully booked for the event) to be up around 3am to head out to the swimming leg of the Triathlon which will start in Shieldaig. Goodness knows what time they will be back in on the 23rd but it will be light until late around 11pm as it is so close to the longest day. We expect everyone will want a bit of a lie in on Sunday followed by a hearty breakfast! Good luck to all the competitors.
