Now we are getting near the end of another year what events have people signed up/planning on signing up for in 2013? Not just Tri but any cycling, running, swimming or all 3

Pontypool Home Run 10k - February

Blaenavon Triathlon (Oly) - May

Grafman (Half IM) - June

Ironman UK - August

Survival of the Fittest (Cardiff) - October

And probably a few more here and there.  Depending on how August goes, might do another marathon later in the year.

My intention (although I haven't actually entered yet) is to start the year with the Benfleet 15 in January.

An idea has just popped into my head, maybe do one event a month through the year?

but i'm doing a different June race

Was the Cardiff half better this year?  I ran it last year and it was BORING, 5 miles along dual carriageway, so I didn't bother this year.

I hated the cardiff half when i did it years ago and i haven't read anything in the years since that have made me want to go back and redo it

So far, I have planned in:

April - Half Marathon
May - 2 x Sprints + Half IM
Jun - Derry Marathon
July - IMCH
Aug - Half Ireman
Sept - Nothing as yet and maybe soley dedicated for training for Dublin Marathon
Oct - Dublin Marathon

If I manage to stay well and un-injured, my diary will fit in a couple more half marathons plus a standard tri and a few shorter road races.

I have done Cardiff half for the last 4 years, this years course was the best yet IMO, but knowing Cardiff they will change it again for next year. The dual carrige way section has gone and it started at Cardiff castle and finished at City hall. I enjoyed this years course.

Damn Seren your on to me, will have to change my June plan and do Enduroman instead of Bala.

March Farnham Tri Ironman training weekend weekend - Swim Friday, ride saturday, run sunday.
April - Evans Ride It in Working 60 mile bike

you know your racing calender is getting a bit hectic when you forget to put in a mere marathon
