IRONMAN 70.3 Comes to Cousland

Cousland village welcomed over one thousand athletes competing in the inaugural IRONMAN Edinburgh triathlon on Sunday 2nd July. The village would like to extend its thanks to all volunteers who came out to help man the feeding stations and to everyone else who just came out to cheer on the athletes! You all did the village proud! 

Here are some of the excellent comments we received from some of the atheletes who took part in the event....

"Cousland wins the award for best support. Amazing community spirit. Thank you. Love the pipes the sound was travelling a long way on the wind so it was great to get me up the hill!"

"I'm sad to say I'd never heard of Cousland before I cycled the recce but what a lovely village and that support! Thank you so much, you were the best Iron village!"

"Cousland welcomes Ironman - best support sign I saw all day. Thank you to your lovely community it was a real lift going through a hard time in the race."

"Thank you so much for your awesome support. The piper was awesome and brought a wee tear to the eye when I heard him."

"Everyone in Cousland were fantastic, but special thanks to Cameron, felt quite emotional hearing the pipes as I approached the village!"

Haste ye back, IRONMAN!
