One of the most unique off road events in the world takes place October 6 & 7 in support of the all-volunteer Oban Mountain Rescue Team.
The Craggy Island Triathlon challenges intrepid athletes to start the race by swimming from Oban to the spectacular island of Kerrera. The race is off road- appropriate, since Kerrera has no roads.
Organised by Durty Events, the race provides a warm welcome for both newbies as well as experienced triathletes who fancy their chances at the head of the field- but it’s not for the faint hearted!
