The Naadam Festival, Mongolia

If you’ve ever thought of jacking it all in and becoming a travelling nomad, perhaps it’s time to learn some life skills from the experts at the legendary Naadam Festival. Nomadic tribes from across Mongolia come together to put on vibrant displays of the ‘Three Games of Men’ - wrestling, archery and horse racing - held in villages across the country against a backdrop of rolling meadows and brightly coloured tents in a celebration of national independence.

Loch Tay Sprint Triathlon, Scotland

17 August

This triathlon may be described as a sprint, but it still demands a lot of grit - especially when it comes to leaping into Loch Tay at the start of this race in the grounds of Taymouth Castle. After a 750-metre swim in the literally breath-taking Loch, with views of Ben Lawers mountain across the water, you’ll take on an equally spectacular bike course - a lap of Drummond Hill. Finish it all off with a short three-mile sprint through the stunning grounds of the castle.
