Aberfeldy Triathlon 2015

August 16th saw the 2015 Abefeldy triathlon take place in sunny Perthshire.

The midweek water temperature meant that the swim had to be cut to 750M. Lomo had to lay out a new course on Saturday and first thing Sunday morning using new larger buoys to make sighting easier.

The 'Lomo Swim' took place on Loch Tay on sunday morning just after 7am in perfect conditions, even the water temperture rose.

With such good conditions there were some really fast times.

From there the athletes left the beautiful setting of Loch Tay and headed out on the cycle leg which took them over Schiehallion and around Loch Rannoch. This year there were no winds and nice temperatures making for an excellent cycle.
