It's been a while - but thanks to the hard work of the committee and coaching team (to implement Triathlon Scotland COVID guidance) we are now in a position to get back together. Just in the nick of time to help us all get through the winter. We are definitely looking forward to it!
It will be a little different, but hopefully equally enjoyable. We will need your help to make sure we can run sessions safely within the guidelines though. You can help us by:
I thought this would be a fitting way to end 2019 by looking at the highlights of a relative newbie to the sport and seeing how far they've come in a year!
We have such a wonderful club with a wide variety of athletes. Whatever your current level, whether a seasoned triathlete or never done anything before hopefully Eileen's story will inspire you to get out there in 2020 and try and improve at something and reach your whatever goals you set yourself... be it triathlon or something else.
The weekend of 13th-14th July saw a number of club members travel down to Monikie Triathlon festival. Over the course of the weekend there were junior races, Scottish Relay & Sprint Championships
This year we had a number of members taking on the challenge of Celtman. Arguably one of the worlds toughest triathlons, where getting yourself over the line is by no means a certain outcome on the day. Ultimately its a very personal journey of hard work and self-discovery, but whatever the outcome all journeys have one thing in common. That's positive back up support of family, friends, club coaches and your on the day support team.
How has your winter training been? That's the question posed by our Vice chair Jenny in an honest an open reflection on her winter training experience this year below. Jenny is training for Celtman this year and her reflections are a reminder that we don't take on challenges because they are easy. Training around normal life can be a challenge and along the journey sometimes we sometimes need to step back, rest up more and let the body adapt. It's also proof that encouragement and support go along way. Thanks for sharing Jenny!
2018 was a fantastic year for the club rounded off in style with our annual and social awards night at the Inverness Rugby Club. In a year where the club won Triathlon Scotlands 'most welcoming club of the year' award and club membership topped 100; it was fitting that the end of year celebration attracted 70+ people for a night of games, food, drinks and fun awards.
Local youngster Luke Williams was in fine form at the Scottish Standard Championships in Knockburn.
Some fantastic splits saw Luke exit the water first then produce a great bike and run leg, eventually holding on to take 3rd Overall Male and 1st Junior.
Well done Luke a fine effort

Can't swim, bike or run? Don't let that stop you doing a triathlon!
Lots of people put off joining the club or entering a triathlon because they don't feel they can't do the three disciplines or feel that they're just not fit enough to complete a triathlon. Well Sheree shows us that with hard work, grit and determination you can do a whole lot more than enter a triathlon.
At the end of July, Richard and Sarah headed out to Odense in Denmark for the World Multisport Festival which included a whole range of events such as an Aquathlon, Duathlon, Aquabike, CrossTri and the Long Distance event (among others).
Club chair James threw in a last minute entry and made a flying day trip down to Loch Lomond for this years Scottish Aquathlon Championships. Basically a sprint distance triathlon less the bike leg. So a splash and dash involving a 750m swim and 5km bike.
Compared to a triathlon its minimum kit fuss, rapid fire and over in a flash; particularly with the numerous GBR and Scottish squad kit on show. Having been training for longer distance events James managed to finish well in 34.50 in 26th overall and 9th in the senior mens race. Results link
