The swim section was completed predominantly at slack water on a high tide. Though the swim time wasn’t the quickest it did seem that more of the athletes were out of the water quicker than in the past, with a lot of competition at the front of the race.

With the increase in popularity of Celtman the exit of the swim is now very congested. That and with a number of swimmers exiting the water at the same time made the photography very challenging. I have included some that are on the edge in terms of quality and regrettably a number were not up to standard for inclusion.

The eventual winner Dirk Zangen passed me at Achnasheeen with a 21 minute lead. His style on the bike was relaxed and motionless and made the effort of cycling in to a headwind seemed easy. However with the wind steadily increasing the last part of the ride from the Garve junction towards Achnasheeen was to prove a hard slog.

When Torridon and Kinlochewe Mountain Rescue Team deployed to the top of Beinn Eight the clag was still down. However for the blue shirt competitors the weather was to lift and the ridge became clear affording them the spectacular views of the surrounding mountain. As ever the early runners passed me at the back of Liathach fully focussed on the remaining 13-15 km of competition. For the rest of the high and low route competitors the evening was spent with those that have a myriad of stories to tell about what continues to be a compelling, challenging but ultimately a totally mesmerising race.
