General Info

The Cairngorm Adventure Triathlon (the 'CAT') is an exciting event.

Based around Loch Morlich in Glenmore, near Aviemore, it makes best use of the unique natural environment of the Cairngorms National Park, to create a competitive yet fun event.

The inspiration came from the original Cairngorm Triathlon – a canoe, road cycle and run which last took place in 2001. With the growth of mountain biking and adventure racing and the abundant forestry trails in the area it makes sense to switch to mountain bikes for the bike section.

This is a not-for-profit event run by an entirely voluntary committee. As with the original Cairngorm Triathlon, all proceeds from the event will go to supporting talented young local athletes. In addition we are delighted to support CLIC Sargent, the UK's leading charity caring for children with cancer and leukaemia. If you would like to support CLIC Sargent, please include a donation with your entry form. Sponsorship is not compulsory, but if you would like to raise money via sponsorship please contact Peter Logie at CLIC Sargent on

All of us on the committee, Tim Pott, Alice Bailey, Penny Lawson and Alan Riach are keen if not particularly competitive runners, bikers and triathletes. We live in the park, and between juggling work and family commitments are most likely to be found on a bike up a hill or out for a run. This event would not be possible without the support of Keith Taylor at Loch Morlich Watersports, local landowners and Cairngorms National Park Authority.

Now in its seventh year, and with 100 teams participating, the Cairngorm Adventure Triathlon continues to be a very popular event, attracting everyone from experienced triathletes looking for something a bit different, to fun runners and bikers looking for a new challenge.
