The Ben Nevis Braveheart Triathlon

Fort William, Inverness-shire

Organiser's Description

This event takes place in one of the most scenic areas of Scotland and is classed as one of the UK’s toughest triathlons. The full challenge is a 1.2 mile sea loch swim, a 56 mile road cycle, and a 13 mile hill run to the summit of Ben Nevis - a place of incredible beauty - and back.

It takes commitment, determination and a whole lot of heart to conquer this breath-taking course. Victory, though, is sweet, with views from the summit extending up to 120 miles!

As you enter Fort William from the South, follow the bypass to the roundabout at the end, go straight through towards McDonalds. Before the next roundabout, if you look on your left you will see a large grassy area with ruins called The Old Fort. This is where the race starts and this is transition 1.


Drive towards the town centre but pass the turn to centre, just past the Belford Hospital on your left to the roundabout at the start of the bypass. Take the second left and you will pass The Old Fort on your left where the race starts


Take the Sleeper Train which travels overnight from London Euston all the way through to Fort William. This is a beautiful and hassle free way to travel, for more information click here.

Please note that parking at the transition area is not easy, participants are encouraged where possible to be dropped off at transition and suitable parking to be found in Fort William; competitors are encouraged not to park in Morrison’s Car Park for the duration of the event.
