The Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon (The Quad) is an exhilarating test of stamina, strength and fitness through some of the most spectacular and historic areas of the Scottish Highlands. It will be a weekend you never forget and you’ll need to be on form – this is a tough event!
Who can take part?
The Quad is an event for those who relish the challenge of a one-day endurance test. The event is designed to be accessible to people of all abilities, from more experienced athletes who want to push themselves to the limit or those who wish to set themselves a new challenge and improve their fitness. But make no mistake this will be a serious challenge and will test your fitness, robustness and resilience to the limit. Participants should have some experience in all four disciplines, ideally with some solid and consistent training, however individuals with even a basic level of fitness can complete the event.
We are making changes to the 2019 Event and it will return in an even better format. In 2019 there will be three different route categories: Gold, Silver and Bronze. The Gold route will be the same as the previous years' route. Silver will be the same as the Gold route, except that you will come off the hill section after Munro 6 and will not have to ascend back up to Meall nan Tarmachan. For the Bronze route, there will be no swim section and the hill section will cover just 5 Munros - no Meall Corranaich or Meall nan Tarmachan to ascend. Just come off the hill after Beinn Ghlas and descend to the loch for the kayak section.
