CELTMAN! Extreme Scottish Triathlon
is a race only crazy people would enter, which means the race has to find 150(ish) people crazy enough to do it. Unfortunately, my Dad is one of them, which meant that the last few months he's been training extremely hard for this race and has been super grumpy as well. Grumpier than usual, that may be hard to believe but its true!
He's also been taking the car quite a bit to go swimming or whatever, this has restrained me from doing important stuff like you know, shopping!
Anyway back to the race itself, the Swims
3.8K in Loch Shieldaig(Cold!!), the Bike
course is 200K and the Run
at the end is 42K, going over two Munros! At the end of the race if you don't make to the second Munro by a certain time(it is the highest point on the main ridge itself), and stands at a height of 993m, than you'll be asked to run round a different countryside route and you'll get a white T-shirt at the finish. But if you manage to get there by a certain time and go up this big mountain, well then you'll be an official winner and finisher and you get a blue T-shirt you can wear with pride!
Things are about to get demanding.
