Sunday 12 May 2013, it'll be the 30th year for this race, the longest continually held tri in the UK. Any more pirates coming to join us? We're half full already. Sorry Seren you've got to ditch the pull bouy . Its a nice small, friendly event, might involve a couple of largish hills, but I've ordered the party cake to add to the post race buffet
I was thinking about this this morning whilst swimming...........If I alternated breast stroke with crawl.i think i might be able to manage the 800m............or maybe sneak in those buoyancy pants that i have heard about
I'm already in.
I'm definitely going to be down there for a recce!
Boooooo, I can't (sensibly) do this this year.
Do you need any extra marshalls Slugs, would love to be involved still?
alright..i seem to have pressed the enter button.......
Pingu I never say no to a willing volunteer. Disappointed you wont be racing, but yes please if you can help us out - have a race crew t-shirt to go with those race ones, and you deserve a piece of our cake.
Glad to have you on board Seren I know you'll be OK on the swim. I'll try and pass on details of any bike course recce I hear of.
I'm in, it would be rude not to as this is pretty close
Only 1/3 of the places still left. Filling up nicely. Dont wait too long to make up your mind.
For those who don't know the course, it's brutal and beautiful (the run is very off-road), you won't regret doing it.
I think I will have a tootall around the course after work one evening as one of my training rides, I think the start is around 5 miles from where I work so its ideal for me to go there straight after work.
BBT the bike course isn't the best for doing in the dark, particularly the Blaenafon climb, its a narrow, steep, twisting single track lane, and the Tal y Waun to Hafodrynys section (road surface), and given the recent wet weather there'll be quite a bit of debris on the road.
Ye no worries was going to wait a bit until is light until a little later.
BBT, give me a shout if you want some company, I live 5 miles from Pontypool.
i was thinking we could do the brynbach park run one saturday morning then do the bike course from there...can't be that far from the course can it
Let me know if you go around March and I'll come down! It'll need to be then for me to get fit again!
Seren its about 12 miles from Tredegar to where you'd join the bike course in Bleanafon. You'd then do the old route, from when it was based in Bleanafon. So you'd do the two big climbs in the opposite order. It would certainly be a long (in time) ride, right round & back to Tredegar .
NEWT will probably do a recce ride or 2 on a Sunday morning March/April. That would be open to you all. As soon as I know dates I'll post them up.
Last 10 places
i am so struggling on hills at the moment.this is going to be a nightmare
