Just wandering what other IM's people are doing/considering next year?

I know there's a few thinking of Embrun but what about Nice, Austria, Zurich, Roth, Norseman etc?

I would LOVE to do Norseman but so hard to get into, expensive etc.

I'd love to do Regensburg but not sure whats happening next year with job etc,  have opted to do IM as part of the Deca in June.

If things change and/or settle down during the rest of this year then I'll see what else is available, as I'd love to do an IM somewhere in Europe or else good ol USofA next year

I have had some doubts AL as I have been looking at Canada.

I think I will wait and see

I'm busy next year

If you can put up with lots of laps, there's the IM on the last day of the Deca.

RC - you're not likely to get into Canada as you have to be at the race to sign up for next year. They used to have some international entries but I am not sure they still do that. Of course, you could also do a sub-9hour time and register as a pro

There are lots of non-m.dot IM distances races in Europe - there's a list on www.226.com - many of these do not fill up so quickly.

AL - why not do Embrunman if you want a tough IM. The bike is the toughest in IM, the run is hardish but not as hard as (the black T-shirt) version of the Norseman run. And you don't need your own support like you do in Norseman.

Enter tomorrow Dave! Great race. If you're looking for a cheaper place to stay, the youth hostel is pretty good (not like UK YH!) and well located.

Thanks for that Meli!

Austria looks quite interesting - but you really have to have your finger on the button! Entries only open Monday 11pm though!

K - Outlaw is my one and only comeback
03/07/2010 at 21:31
AL - it means no more ever after Outlaw. Only one proviso - in 3 yrs I'll get my bus pass - and 'if' I feel the need to celebrate it I 'might' do another. Otherwise no more
