Helix Novice and Junior Triathlon 2017

Helix Novice Triathlon - Adults & Juniors


We regret to inform you that The Helix Novice Triathlon due to take place on 28th May 2017 has been cancelled.

Water testing is carried out frequently on the lead up to open water events, and due to a number of reasons out with our control, the water quality is not deemed safe for swimmers. 

Competitor safety is our priority and this decision was made upon recent water tests and upon advice from Triathlon Scotland.

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused and will issue a full refund of your entry fee as soon as possible.

The Open Water Swimming Sessions delivered by Scottish Swimming and Triathlon Scotland, due to take place this Saturday, are also cancelled. Scottish Swimming will be in touch with you directly about your refund.

Apologies once again for the cancellation and thank-you for your understanding.
