Inverness Triathlon hosts a friendly and fun triathlon each summer in Nairn, offering different distances (Novice, Sprint and Standard). It’s always a great day out at Nairn beach and the surrounding countryside. We were delighted to win Triathlon Scotland's 'Event of the Year 2022' award for a “fantastic and inclusive event that was enjoyed by all.” Follow this Facebook page to keep up to date with plans for the next event: https://www.facebook.com/thenairntriathlon

Triathlon and Duathlon
The go-to source of Triathlon and Duathlon event information is Triathlon Scotland. which permits over 100 events each year. By taking part in a permitted event, you can be sure of a safe, fair and most importantly, enjoyable race experience. Triathlon Scotland provides permitting services to triathlon, duathlon, aquathlon and aquabike events across Scotland. The event permitting process is designed to support organisers in the delivery of quality events, but also to act as reassurance to athletes taking part in those events.
Club members take part in a range of Triathlon/Duathlons ranging from the shorter sprint races to the CELTMAN! Extreme Scottish Triathlon, part of the XTRI World Tour
There are also Triathlon and Duathlon events registered in Entry Central or Si Events.
Inverness Half Marathon takes place in March each year and is a great way to kick off the events season with the training burning off those winter excesses.
Loch Ness Marathon, one of the most scenic races in the world, takes place in late September/early October.
For those wanting a more challenging off road route in the Scottish Highlands, the Great Wilderness Challenge offers a number of routes through remote and dramatic Wester Ross.
The Loch Ness Etape in late April involves cycling round Loch Ness, on closed roads and is always a popular event with Club members.
