The Adventure Show, 2012/2013 Episode 5 of 8

Duration: 1 hour

In this month's Adventure Show travels to Torridon for the inaugural Celtman Extreme Scottish Triathlon. And extreme is the word: starting with a three-kilometre open-water swim, followed by over 200 kilometres of biking, and the finale is a 42-kilometre run, with an ascent of one of Scotland's Munros thrown in for good measure. It has been described as one of the hardest days of your life and for most just finishing is a major achievement. Little wonder the Celtman has just won the British Triathlon Event of the Year.

Also on the show: Cameron McNeish explores one of Scotland's smaller hills that packs a big punch; a young cyclist who is determined to emulate the best; and one of the new hotshots on the climbing scene.
