The first event in the Edinburgh sporting calender used to be the New Year’s Day Triathlon, which started with a swim in the Royal Commonwealth Pool, Edinburgh (locally known as the Commie), followed by a cycle and a run around Arthur’s Seat. Then the Commie closed in 2009 for refurbishment, and the annual Ne’erday Tri stopped. Back then I was new to the joys of DSLR photography and took the opportunity to grab a few photos:

The Commie re-opened on 21 March 2012 following a £37.18 million refurbishment, and the Ne’erday Tri is back! This was the cue for Ulli and I to go out and take some more photos…

It was interesting to see the range of people taking part, and the bikes they were riding, TT bikes to MTBs with knobbly tyres and everything in between. There are more pictures here. It was great fun to watch!
