This sums up the many comments
we have received about the triathlon. Conditions were almost perfect
– with a flat calm loch, ensuring that even those with limited
experience in a canoe managed to complete the 3.2km course in under
40 minutes. Most enjoyed the challenging but not too technical mountain
bike course and the 5km run was followed by well earned burger and
We are delighted that local snowboarder Angus Leith was able to
take time out from training to give out prizes. All proceeds from
the event will go towards helping him achieve his goal of competing
in the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Numerous local businesses and landowners helped
make the CAT happen. Keith and team at Loch Morlich Watersports,
Glenmore Lodge, Spey Valley Hire, Badaguish, Bothy Bikes, Cairngorm
Mountain Sports, Carrbridge Community Council, Boat of Garten Hall
Committee, St Andrews First Aid, Forest Enterprise, Pityoulish Estate
and Rothiemurchus Estate.
Thanks also to the team of Marshalls who ensured
nobody got lost! Above all thank yourselves for entering and making
it such a fun filled event.
Here are a few more comments from this
year’s participants. Happy training!!
