On Saturday 6th July 2019, Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon welcomes competitors who want to test their stamina, strength and fitness while enjoying a range of truly unique and enjoyable activities along the way.
A lone piper will serenade the quadrathletes as they begin the race with the swim, setting out to conquer both land and loch on the bike, in a kayak and on their own two feet. Along the way, they will enjoy haggis, chilli, and fish and chips at refreshment stations, piña coladas on Bikini Beach, and a watermelon at the finish line, which they themselves slice in half with a Claymore sword.
The fun doesn’t just stop after the race, though: the setting sun brings with it an enjoyable ceilidh and a fireworks display from the runners up at the World Fireworks Championships. Next day, competitors can relax with bacon rolls and great company, or can continue with the active theme of the weekend and take part in water sports, sailing and clay pigeon shooting.
The event provides unbeatable entertainment for participants but also crucial support for international development charities Mercy Corps and Mary’s Meals. Race organiser WildFox Events has already raised millions of pounds for charity, helping desperate people all over the world – this quadrathlon gives entrants the opportunity to be part of something really special.
This rewarding challenge offers three different routes of varying difficulty, allowing those with no quadrathlon or triathlon experience to find their place at the Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon while simultaneously creating a challenging course for experienced athletes.
The gold route contains all four stages: a swim of 0.8 miles, a walk/run of 15 miles over seven Munros, kayak seven miles and cycle of 34 miles round Loch Tay. The silver route has a shorter walk/run stage, while the bronze route’s walk/run route is yet shorter and participants are not required to do the swim.
Teams of two or relay teams of 3-8 people can enter. Those entering as a team of two must raise £450 per person for charity, in addition to the £175 entry fee, while relay team members must raise £250 for charity, alongside a £135 entry fee. Members in relay teams must compete in a minimum of one stage and maximum of three stages. If any entrant wishes to complete all four stages they would have to commit to the team of two entry fees and fundraising requirements.
For those looking for something to push themselves in 2019, look no further than the Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon. Commit to the training, dare to be different and do something truly rewarding this summer.
