Can anyone recommend a good Half Ironman distance race for towards the end of this year. Maybe September?

Vitruvian - always the 1st Saturday in September.  has won race of the year many times (I've done it 5x) and is one of the UK's top half IM races.  great event but sells out very quickly

or Challenge Henley Half on the same day as the full distance - 8th

EDIT - just noticed that the Vit is 31/8 this year

Be interesting to know if the game has changed at all. With all this competition and new events, I wonder if the old timer faves (Vit, Bala etc) are still up there?

there are lots more races nowadays, so there's lots to pick from.

This one been moved forward in the month this year to enable it to fit for people racing IMW or Henley, so is the 11th Aug - but the Cotswold Classic is a great one
