Loch loMan Triathlon, Lomond Shores, Loch Lomond Sun 17th May 2015
Distances: 1.9km swim, 86km Cycle, 20kn run. Due to temperature conditions (air temperature colder than water temperature) the swim was reduced from 1900m to 500m.
As you may have seen in the practice, Fergus took part in the "Loch loMan" endurance triathlon on Sunday 18th May 2015. Due to the horrible weather conditions and to avoid anyone dying of hypothermia the swim was reduced from the proposed 1900m to 500m but other than that the distances were unaltered. (95km cycle and 20km run). The cycle route was pretty hilly which, when added to cold, wet and windy didn't make for the best cycling conditions! "Heid down keep pedalling" being the best motto. Fergus managed to get around the route in 5:32:44 and afterwards reported that never had a warm cup of tea and a burger tasted so good.
We would like to thank everyone for their warm words of encouragement and donations which have realized in excess of £900 for Ardgowan Hospice, a charity that we are sure you will agree is a very worthwhile local charity.
