Durty Triathlon and new Durty Trail Race

Some 'Durty' News....thanks to Johnny for passing this on...

Durty Tri 2011 30-July-2011

Race date this year is Saturday 30th July. Durty Tri is proud to host the Scottish Off-Road Triathlon Championships this year - all Tri Scotland Race Licence holders are eligible, and there are cash prizes for the first 3 Men and Women across the line. Yee-hah!. Of course, there will also be the usual range of truly amazing Durty Tri trophies as well. Hmmm. Well, beer anyway.

Those good folks at the Tri Centre in Edinburgh are supporting us again this year. Please help us by helping them - they'll sort you out for wetsuit hire, and shiny triathlon toys of all kinds -

Durty 10km Trail Race 28-July-2011

New for 2011, and due to popular demand (well, we hope it will be popular!), we've added a 10km trail race to the Durty roster. It's over the same ever-so-slightly-tough-and-undulating 10km course that the Long Hard Durty uses. A good opportunity fto race or your long-suffering water-hating friends and supporters?. We hope so.

The course starts with the beautiful undulating lochside paths, and then climbs, climbs and climbs on forest roads through the Bowerhope Forest. Did we mention the course climbs yet? A short rough and a little bit boggy (!) section through a forest break takes you out onto the amazing open hillside, with spectacular views over the Yarrow Valley and St. Mary's Loch. You'll then plunge headlong down the hillside on rough quad track and re-emerge for tea + medals (well, possibly not medals, we think they're a bit naff) in the finish field to the respect and adulation of your family and pals. Sounds great, huh?.
