Fancy a bit of multisport action? This year’s Great Adventure Race (27 September, Loch Lomond) offers you the chance to pick and choose which bits you want to do, which looks like a great way of dipping a toe into the chilly multisport waters.
There’s trail running, lake swimming, kayaking and mountain biking events which you can enter individually. Or enter the running, swimming and bike events as a package and it’s a sort of slightly spread-out triathlon (rather than going straight from one discipline to the next). The mountain bike course will be in Queen Elizabeth II Forest Park on the shores of Loch Lomond, starting from Dounans Centre
