There was lots of messing around on the water as the beginners and professionals acclimatised to the water on the wonderful purpose built loch, getting ready to start the Stand Up Paddle Boarding split that launched just after 10am. It was clear to see this element was going to keep the supporters and spectators thoroughly entertained throughout the different waves.
Next came the “gruelling for some” 10km Off-road Bike Course which consisted of 4 laps of the site showing off beautiful scenery in between gulping for air, quick gear changes, and wiping away drops of sweat! The Supathlon finished with a scenic 3km cross-country run through the extensive grounds, including a quarry, back to base to a well earned applause and a most welcome bottle of water or maybe stronger - cuppa! Such a fantastically competitive (for some) challenge, so well organised by Tom (Knockburn Loch) and Henry (Resultsbase, Big Cow Events) and the excellent team at Knockburn Loch - just look at those great photographs of (mostly) smiling faces!
