Route information
Swim
During the swim, the wetsuit is compulsory. The swim will be between Gallanach and the Isle of Kerrera. You will start in the deep water. Make sure to be fully prepared for a cold swim leg.
Bike
The bike leg will be completely off-road, and you will get a great taste of trying mountain biking along the course. You will follow a combination of landrover, quad bike and paths throughout. The XL route will be longer. During the race, you'll get to see most of the island, as well as getting to experience the fantastic scenery as you race.
Run
The off-road run will have you tackling a typical 'cross-country' style hill race. You will be taken through rough trackless boggy sections as well as some wild hillsides. This run route will be rewarding offering some fantastic views of the island.
