Richard, Sarah and Jill, along with fellow Inverness based triathlete Pete ventured over to the Isle of Arran to take part in the Arran Man middle distance triathlon (one of several swimming/running/duathlon/triathlon events that were taking place that weekend). The event has a 1900m swim (although it was actually just over 2km), the bike is pretty cool as it is one loop of the island which happens to be exactly 90km (the exact distance of a middle distance triathlon bike leg) and then there’s the half marathon to finish it off.

This will have been Richard, Sarah and Jill’s third time over to Arran for this event, it’s clearly a firm favourite on the race calendar. Arran is a pretty spectacular island and every year so far (perhaps excluding the first) the weather has been amazing (fingers crossed this continues for future years).

The team came away with a good set of results with Pete and Sarah taking 1st male and 1st female. Richard was 4th male and Jill was 5th female. Great results team and another fun day out racing!
