June 5th, 2013 by



My oh my how the years roll by – it was just the other week that I was asking Andy at the Stirling Tri Club if he had any space for me to join in and race … but wait a minute … that was last year! And here we are again – the first weekend in June and the ‘Try a Tri’ event is here.

If you are looking to race locally in Scotland then these should be on your list each season!
