The Highland Warrior Triathlon is the first half iron distance tri on the No Fuss calendar this year, set for the 26th May. When we first introduced this event to the triathlon world in 2010, we had a feeling it had the potential to become a classic and one for your triathlon bucket lists. We weren’t wrong - the Warrior has everything – a stunning course following Highland lochs and glens, great facilities courtesy of Lochaber Leisure Centre, slick organisation and timing and, of course, it is all done in the relaxed and social atmosphere that we are proud of.
