The award-winning Craggy Island Triathlon takes place on the incredible unspoilt Hebridean island of Kerrera, off Scotland’s stunning West coast, and close to the bustling town of Oban. With an all new swim and run course and a slightly altered bike course you will take in all of the sights that the north of the island has to offer.

The event will once again take place across two days with a race held on both Saturday and Sunday. Both days are the same distance so just pick the day that suits you best. The course will see you swim 600m point-to-point around the pretty Kerrera Marina, before heading off to Gylen Castle at the south end of the island on the 16km bike course. Once back at the marina you will head out for a beautiful 8.5km trail run around the north end peninsula with views towards Dunollie Castle.  

The races are off-road, and will take you around the island's coast and over the wild hillside terrain with spectacular views across the Firth of Lorne and Sound of Mull.

This event is part of Craggy Island Triathlon.
