I know nothing about tri events but there must be a time limit. So long as you can do it within the time then there won't be a problem with the marshalls.
Whiich triathlon is it? My first was also Olympic, being overweight with not enough training and the swim took me an hour.. but I got through it and loved it and that spurred me on to lose 3.5 stone over the next 2 years and then do an Ironman.
By the sound of it you'll be fine but if you're worried then contact the organisers to see if there is a time limit.
Pull out? No.. hopefully you'll finish, be drawn in by the atmosphere and cameraderie, be rightfully proud of yourself and then want another go!
Debbie Munro. Let the officials think what they want to think. This is your personal challege, and you will make it round I'm sure of that.
Have you tried to switch to the novice triathon? Will they not let you chang?
