“Just wanted to say a huge thanks for a great day on Saturday, the organisation couldn't have been better, everyone was so friendly and all the marshalls were just great. Never has a burger and cup o'tea tasted so great. Will definitely be back next year.”
Emma Bertram
 

This sums up the many comments we have received about the triathlon. Rain failed to dampen spirits and more than a few of us had a surprise dunk in the water on entering our canoes! Choppy waters ensured the canoe proved more challenging than last year, whilst participants continue to praise the varied bike route and scenic run.

The CAT would not be possible without the support of numerous local businesses, in particular Keith Taylor and team at Loch Morlich Watersports who ensured we all managed to paddle our way out and back again and provided the well earned burger and tea.

Local Businesses were particularly generous in their support by donating prizes and these included Bothy Bikes, Mountain Spirit, Ellis Brigham, Cycleworld, Cairngorm Hotel, Roos Leap, Nevisport, Cairngorm Mountain Sports, Cairngorm Brewery and Extreme Dream.

Other organisations who helped by lending equipment were Badaguish, Boat of Garten Hall Committee, Cairngorm Mountain, Carrbridge Community Council and Spey Valley Hire. We also appreciate the support of local landowners Forest Enterprise, and Pityoulish and Rothiemurchus Estates. St Andrews Ambulance first aid did an invaluable job providing medical cover. Finally we are very grateful to our happy band of Marshalls who stayed cheerful despite the rain.

MEDALS

Big apologies! It seems something always gets forgotten and those in Heats 1 and 2 did not get their medal as they crossed the finish line. We did find some of you afterwards, however if you left before the prize giving and did not receive your medal, please email us with an address of where to send your medal to.

PHOTOS

There were at least three photographers on the day at various locations. We hope to have most of these on site in the next few days, with details of how you can obtain decent quality photographs direct from the photographers.


SUPPORTING YOUNG ATHLETES

We had some excellent applications for funding from young local athletes, however two stood out. We have therefore decided to donate proceeds to John Rutledge who is recording some great results in triathlon and Chloe Robinson who is aiming for the world windsurfing championships in Spain next year. More info on John and Chloe to follow soon.

FINALLY

Many thanks to all of you for helping to make it such an excellent day.
