The venue includes a purpose-built swimming loch with an enclosed cycling track for kids races and lovely natural trails around it.
It’s one of very few Scottish races that kids can do in open water, although many people said it was a chilly at 13C.
The Sprint and Super Sprint triathlons include a hilly 18k cycle loop, which competitors thought was harder than the distance suggested it should be.
Another podium for Mia
Mia Padmanabhan showed a strong performance finishing first female in the Super Sprit and third overall.
The race comprised a 400m swim, 18k cycle and 2.5k run.
Mia’s dad, Neal, said: “Mia was first out of the water, which reflects the excellent coaching she’s been getting from Cliona Ferguson and Billy Mitchell at the club, as well as Adam Riley at Milgavie & Bearsden Swimming Club.”
Mia, who finished in 53.11, said: “This race has a great atmosphere and it was a lovely day to do it on as well. I enjoyed the swim and I thought the bike course was very scenic.”
