Spar Scotland are Major Sponsor for 2019

spar-logo-small

We welcome SPAR Scotland as our Major Sponsor for the Glen Affric Duathlon 2019. The SPAR brand is known across the globe and the organisation was IAAF’s Principal Partner at the 35th European Athletics Indoor Championships held in Glasgow at the start of this month.

With the additional financial support we are now confident we can stage this year’s duathlon to the same high standard as in recent years – all we need now is good weather similar to 2018!

SPAR has had a presence in the Strathglass local community – our local village store Cannich Stores has traded under the SPAR banner for several decades and has been very supportive of the duathlon through the years. We hope that those taking part in this year’s event will show their appreciation by supporting our local store during their visit.

New Marquees For 2019

As you know we generally beg, steal and borrow various pieces of equipment that we need for duathlon HQ. So we are really pleased that for this year’s event we will have two new marquees for our admin area courtesy of a grant from the Strathglass Community Fund. This local charity funnels funds from renewable energy sources into local projects such as the duathlon.

Glen Affric Duathlon: Road Closure

On the day of the event, Saturday 12th May, the Glen Affric road between Chisholm Bridge and River Affric Car Park, approximately 1 mile, will be closed to all traffic not directly involved in the duathlon from 9am until 3pm.  Only competitors, support personnel and emergency services will have access beyond this point.  We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but it is essential for safety reasons.

With limited parking at the River Affric car park it is hoped that those taking part can car share wherever possible but above all please comply with requests from marshals.  In that way we can manage the situation and ensure the race route is left clear.

Please note that parking charges at River Affric DO NOT APPLY – these have been included in your entry fee.  Charges at Dog Falls car park will still be in force (if the machines are working!).
