Ivan recently competed in the Celtman long distance race, here’s what he had to say.
Celtman is part of the Xtri series of races and is billed as having a 3.4km swim in cold, jellyfish
infested Atlantic waters, 200km cycle on incredible Scottish highland roads with about 2200m of
climbing plus a marathon on 80% trail over 2 Munroes. Plus monster swarms of midges and
voracious horse flies or ‘clegs’ as they are called in Scotland. ½ way though the run is T2A and if you
get there within 11 hours, you are awarded a blue t-shirt and get to do the high run course or
otherwise you get a white one and the low course. Sounds pleasant enough and I had done the same
race in 2017 with my buddy Owen crewing so I kinda knew what I was letting myself in for. Read the full report here….
