EVENT DETAILS:

The BRAND NEW Edinburgh Sprint Triathlon event will take place on July 17th 2021 at 8AM at the sensational Gosford House.

 THIS RACE IS OPEN FOR ENTRY TO ALL ABILITIES FROM BEGINNERS TO SEASONED ATHLETES.

Tough Runner UK welcomes you to the first edition of the highly anticipated Edinburgh Triathlon which takes place in the breath-taking scenery of Gosford House and it’s neighbouring country roads and shoreline. 

Gosford House was previously known as the location of the ‘Edinburgh Ironman Triathlon’ so it made perfect sense for us to strive to bring and event like this back to the area. The swim will take part off the shore line outside Gosford House, the run course will take part within the spectacular estate and then transition onto the bike that will take you out onto the surrounding roads. This outstanding bike course boasts of unrivalled scenery along the coast line and farmlands.

So let’s get down to the details:
Event Date – Saturday 17th July 2021- 8AM Start
Event venue – Gosford House
Event Distance – 750m Swim,  25k Bike, 5km run (2x 2.5km loop)

please note: our edinburgh duathlon sold out within 3 weeks therefore it’s likely the triathlon will sell out in a faster time. Once we hit capacity, entries will close!

First duathlon yesterday and thought it was very safe, well-managed, very friendly and great fun. Communications and beginner’s guides beforehand were useful and marshalls & staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Thanks to all involved - I’ve a feeling this won’t be my last duathlon!
