New event in the South Loch Ness area involves 8km of swimming and a whole lot of running

Inspired by Sweden’s spectacular OtillO race, the team behind the Celtman have put together a new swim/run event for this September which sends participants across a bunch of beautiful Scottish lochs.

The race is being held in the spectacular South Loch Ness area, with two of the swim sections in Loch Ness itself (no word yet on whether Nessie will be on the water safety team). It started on 26 September at the historic Castle Urquhart and finishes in the shadow of the atmospheric Fort Augustus Abbey.

The race will involve 13 swims in total covering 8km across some very deep and dark water, and 12 runs totalling 53km. The race will be run under OtillO SwimRun rules. Entries for pairs of athletes will open this month on www.swimrunscotland.com.
