Monster Triathlon routes

DAY 1

SUN 20 JUNE 5km swim in Loch Ness (Cycle to Fort William)
Setting off from Canal Side, Fort Augustus participants will complete a 5km lapped swim in Loch Ness and then a 50km ride to Fort William.

DAY 2

MON 21 JUNE Cycle from Fort William to Glasgow 172 km and 1497m
The first day on the bike takes riders through majestic countryside including the iconic Glencoe Pass and the shores of Loch Lomond. It is very much a day of two halves with all the big climbs coming in the morning.

DAY 3

TUES 22 JUNE Cycle from Glasgow to Carlisle 190km and 1626m
The ride follows a direct route through the Scottish Borders as it cuts through the rugged landscape. It’s an easier day than the first but still lumpy enough to provide a stern challenge.

DAY 4

WED 23 JUNE Cycle from Carlisle to Haydock 200km 1749m
The longest day of the event and a tough day in the saddle. The route takes riders over the famous Shap pass and through the undulating countryside of Lancashire.

DAY 5

THURS 24 JUNE Cycle from Haydock to Kidderminster 195km 1376m
Another long day of riding sees riders enjoy a relatively flat first 80 miles before a hilly section through the Shropshire hills and on to Kidderminster.

DAY 6

FRI 25 JUNE Cycle from Kidderminster to Windsor 198km 1595m
The final days riding is another long day with riders passing through Shakespeare country and the lovely Warwickshire countryside. The final few hills of the trip are found as the route crosses the Chilterns before the descent down to Windsor.

DAY 7

SAT 26 JUNE Run from Windsor to Richmond 50km
The Monster Triathlon concludes with an ultra-marathon along the banks of the Thames. The route utilises much of the Thames Path as it winds its way towards the finish venue in Richmond.

    I entered this event looking for a once in a life time type event and wasn't disappointed. The swim was certainly a challenge but how often do you get to swim in Loch Ness. 1,000 km is a long way on the bike but the route was well thought out, largely avoiding main roads it offered great cycling terrain and stunning scenery. The run was, well, a long way but good and flat. Through the whole event the WMP team were superb, nothing was too much trouble for them and the regular refreshment stops well stocked with a wide range of snacks. I can't recommend Monster Triathlon enough, certainly the best week of my year.

    A real bucket list event that if i'm honest i was terrified to compete in. Those fears were quickly dispelled when you saw the care and attention the team put into it the event to cater to all people of all abilities. Yes it's hard, but with their help and the comraderie of your fellow participants you'll get through it. More importantly you'll see utterly incredible sights, make incredible friends and have the best story to tell for the rest of your life. Don't think about it any longer, just sign up!

    We swam, we rode and we ran, all the way from Loch Ness to London. With great support from the Monster Crew this unachievable feat was made achievable even to less experienced endurance athletes. Do it - you won't regret it!!

    Needs to be on your bucket list, absolutely fantastic week long event,. Great cycling and running, swim would've been better had weather been better but that can't be helped. The team could not do enough for you, catered to our every need, apart from new legs😂 thanks so much

    Couldn't recommend this event enough. Everything was perfectly organised.
    All of the hotels were great and our luggage was always put in our room before we arrived which was awesome. Food stations were great and you could make requests for certain cravings.

    The cycling routes were amazing and my favourite day was through Glen Coe.

    The run was well signposted and the bbq at the end was great!

    Really recommend this event. Also feel it's great value for money - if you signed up to do an ironman you wouldn't get much change for the price you pay for a week all inclusive trip.

    I'm not sure what I'd suggest to improve this event.

    Such an incredible event, well organised by a superbly skilled team who go the extra mile to ensure that even the smallest things are tailored to you. It was a challenge I was nervous about and yet from the moment I signed up I felt supported. An epic week that pushed me making the finish even more of an accomplishment. Don’t think about it...sign up...you will have the best week of your year 😁
