WATER QUALITY, MEDICAL and SAFETY
There will be substantial safety cover on the loch to guide and provide safety cover.
All competitors should please note: the United Kingdom inland waters are not completely safe for swimming, although risks of disease are low and risks of serious infection are minute (we have NO concerns about Loch Achray, but do take your safety seriously). A swimmer who may be susceptible to infection through immune suppression, are advised not to enter the event if he or she is not in good health at the time of swimming.
Water quality testing will be carried out in the 4 weeks
Onsite during the event will be Paramedics, Doctors and First Aiders all highly experienced at supplying the highest calibre of comprehensive medical cover at a range of sporting events.
We ask that all athletes show a sensible approach towards entering the event and if you feel at all unwell either prior, during or after the event you either withdraw and or seek assistance from the Medical Team.
All marshals will receive an event memento, food & drink.
If you would like further information about becoming a race volunteer please contact our volunteer coordinator at [email protected]
You do not require any previous experience or knowledge of triathlon to become a race volunteer; any training required will be given on, or prior to race day.
