We have made significant changes to this year's cycle and run elements and we think you will enjoy them!

Participant can enter as individuals, or 3 person teams.  

The Dunoon Presents Triathlon is pool-based involving a 400m swim, a testing 22km  bike ride on the coastal road and forestry/gravel trails and finished off with a stunning 10k run involving some trail running in the recently acclaimed Bishop's Glen trails above Dunoon.  It is designed to encourage the ‘have a go’ philosophy and participation will be made up of all ages and fitness levels.

These exciting changes to this year's Dunoon Presents Triathlon will mean participants heading to the Dunoon from far and wide to soak up the atmosphere will enjoy a memorable day of multisport and triathlon.

The Dunoon Presents Triathlon has only one ‘quick’ transition, between the bike and run, so is suited to those just starting out on multi-sport as you get a rest between your swim and cycle!

The aim is to encourage everyone to experience the wonderful world of triathlon and make it fun and rewarding for all competitors. Wether a seasoned triathlete or a first time beginner this race will have a test for  you.

Although the thought of it may be terrifying a triathlon needn’t be!
