The BRJ squad was led home by the in-form Keelan Duffy, just shy of his current club PB. Our leading lady was Alice Synge,

Celtman Extreme Scottish Triathlon
Andrew Skea set himself a massive personal challenge by competing in this extreme Triathon based in & around the Lochs & Mountains of Wester Ross in the Scottish Highlands. The 3 events cover an ascent of 4,000 metres overall.
The Triathlon starts with a 3.4K swim in Loch Sheildog. The race distance used to be 3.8K but even with the affects of Climate Change / Global Warming the temperature of this Loch was becoming increasingly cold so the decision was taken a few years ago to slightly reduce the race distance.
The bike phase constitutes a distance of 202K including an overall ascent of 2,000 metres over 2 of the 282 Scottish Mountains known as the “Munro’s” i.e. over 3,000 feet (915 metres) in height. The run phase is the traditional full marathon distance of 42K.
Andrew finished in position 62 of the 104 finishers in an overall time of 15:55:32. His individual stats were:-
Swim – 00:59:40
T1 – 00:11:17
Bike – 6:54:16
T2 – 00:11:34
Run – 7:38.45
A fantastic achievement!
