Centred around the stunning Torridon mountains we will take you on an adventure unlike any other.
Make no mistake - when we say this race is extreme we mean it. Please read the race information carefully before entering as you may have to endure cold water, strong winds, driving rain and difficult condions on the mountain with low visibility.
Or... as happened recently on the following weekend - the temperature on Beinn Eighe was 27 degrees!
Be prepared, be very prepared!!

Registration will open on October 29, 2014 at 6pm CET and will be closed again on November 12 at midnight.
The 200 CELTMAN! slots are decided by lottery.
Registration for the CELTMAN! Extreme Scottish Triathlon and the SWISSMAN Xtreme Triathlon will be during the same period. It's possible to register for both events and decline one slot should you be lucky and win two, but only want to do one.

Swim 3.8K in Loch Shieldaig
In both 2012 and 2013 the water in Loch Shieldaig was below the seasonal average.
The led us to shorten the swim course from 3.8K to 3K. Even with this shortened distance the athletes were cold.
In 2013 the wind added to the drama with strong Southerlys pushing the competitors off course.
Highland Roads The stunning CELTMAN! 202K bike route takes you along some historic single lane roads and wide open, virtually traffic free highland A roads.
Although we do not have any mountain passes to boast of the route includes 2000M of climbing and, being coastal is affected greatly by our varied weather.

The CELTMAN! run is unsurpassed for it's challenging nature and beauty.
Spidean Coire nan Clach ('Peak of the Corrie of Stones' in Scottish Gaelic), is the highest point on the main ridge itself. It stands at a height of 993m. You do not go to the absolute summit of this peak due to the technicality of the climb but you go as far as the trig point.
Ruadh-stac Mòr ('Big Red Stack' in Scottish Gaelic) is on one of the spurs off the main ridge of Beinn Eighe and stands at a height of 1,010m.
You will go all the way to this summit along an exposed ridge - if the wether gods are on your side you will be able to see for miles and miles!
Win a coveted blue T-ShirtIn 2012 110 Athletes won the Blue T-shirt.
In 2013 only 11 managed the high course before we had to close the mountain due to adverse weather!
A further 36 were awarded Blue T-shirts after making the cut-off time and completing the grueling low course.
Scotland offers a unique challenge, we never know what the conditions will be like - even the forecast 24 hours before the race was wrong.
