Tiree’s Scottish Champion
Not many of us would want to even think about it let alone actually do it, and on hearing about it we may think a degree of insanity was required, but there’s no doubt that for someone to not only take part but to win requires dedication and stamina.
On Saturday 11 September Will Wright swam 1.9 km in Loch Linnie’s icy waters, Mountain biked along a 90 km route and ran up and back down Ben Nevis – a distance of 21 km.
Competing against many other intrepid souls he improved on his placing of 9th in last year’s event and finished first making him the Off Road Triathlon Scottish Champion of 2010.
Congratulations Will from all of us armchair athletes who can only manage such activities whilst dreaming.
