The Montrose opticians sponsored the recent Montrose Triathlon – an annual swimming, cycling and running endurance race which is now in its second year.

Providing equipment
The store provided water bottles for participants taking part in the event and is the second year running the store has lent its support - last year it provided high visibility vests for all event volunteers which were re-used this year. 

Bridgeen Johnston, store director at Specsavers in Montrose said: ‘Events like this put Montrose on the map. We hope that the water bottles helped the participants to stay hydrated while they took part in the triathlon and we are delighted that the high visibility vests were used again to keep the event volunteers safe.’

Swim, cycle and run
The triathlon consisted of a novice competition comprising a 400m swim, 12km bike ride and 5km run, while the sprint competition for those with a little more experience comprised a 750m swim, 20km bike ride and a 5km run. The event had 210 participants.
