The 2011 Durty Scottish Cross (Off-Road) Triathlon Championships
The championships were held at Tibbie Shiels by St Mary’s Loch with the main race consisting of a 1500m swim, 30km mountain bike run with a technical descent and a 10km hill run with a climb of about 800 feet. A supporting race over half of these distances was also held with solo and relay teams taking part in both races. The event attracted almost 400 entries from all over the UK with some coming from Holland, Germany, France and New Zealand. The weather was very good and the winning time for the main race was 2 hours and 18 seconds and 1 hour 8 minutes and 20 seconds for the shorter race. Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team and Selkirk Canoe Club were in attendance. These competitors are emerging from St Mary’s Loch after a 1500m swim and will be heading for the transition area to start a 30km bike run over a hilly course.
