Celtman extreme tri set for Scotland in 2012

New long-distance triathlon in Western Ross

CELTMAN! Extreme Scottish Triathlon will take place on June 23 in Western Ross, Scotland, centred around the stunning Torridon mountains.

CELTMAN! is a long-distance EXTREME triathlon. Please take note – this race is HARD. The distances are Ironlike and the terrain severe. You will be expected to complete a sea-loch swim, an arduous road cycle and a mountainous run. This will require endurance, stamina, great bike handling skills and off-road running experience.

The approximate ascent for the whole race is 4,000m (13,000 feet). Please do not consider entering this race if you question your own ability to do anything mentioned above.

The route, for the moment, remains under wraps – but you will not be disappointed. Expect this to be one of the hardest days of your life.

Entries opened on November 5th and we will be restricting numbers to 150 for the first year of the race.

Each athlete will require a support car/ crew. One of the crew must be fit and able enough to accompany the competitor during the last leg of the run over a large mountain! Mandatory safety kit will be required. You will need to be in Torridon, Scotland, at least the day before the race (22 June 2012). Torridon is remote village and is at least 5 hours drive from Glasgow or Edinburgh.

Entry details are available from cxtri.com and facebook.com/theceltman
