The wee triathlon is a perfect and very doable triathlon! The Wee Triathlon is aimed at beginners along with those of you who are looking for something to keep you motivated and fit over the winter. The Wee Triathlon has been put together in a way that it has only one quick transition, the one between the bike and run, so is even more suited to those just starting out on their multi-sport journey as you get a rest between your swim and cycle!
The Wee Triathlon is a pool-based triathlon involving a 400m swim, a 10-mile bike ride on a mixture of tar, forest track and footpath in Glen Nevis and a 3-mile cross country run on varied terrain similar to the bike route.
Our aim is to encourage everyone to experience the wonderful world of triathlon and make it fun and rewarding for all participants. We have been running The Wee Triathlon for 15 years, it really is a favourite with experienced triathletes and with those new to multi sport it really is the ideal triathlon for the terrified first-timer who wants to join the multi-sport family. Please remember that although the thought of it may be terrifying, a triathlon needn’t be! If this is going to be your first triathlon, we think you will love this format, we are sure this is the best one to ease you into the world of multi-sport events.
