Me and Shuffles are in

Her first IM distance race, and no way was I gonna sit around an support for 14-15 hrs...

Instead I'll race then support the last 3

Nice late season target, (flatter than Wales) to stop you getting board after Nice?  Entries are easy, although payment process was fun

This was my first last year, bike was flat, sea was very lumpy. Rented a very good and cheap apartment close to transition if you want details.

I like the idea. Need to get a few ducks in a row first. Anyone know how long before it's likely to sell out?

Looks like you're doing Ironman Barcelona now, they've just been bought out.

Oh mannnnnn. I'd have loved to do this!

Did this 3 years ago - great course, weather, location.  Planning on doing it this year but will have to watch the registrations now its Ironman and save a lot more.

That closes the door on the pissabolity I might sign-up as the rereleased IM entries are bound to disappear in minutes, non?

16/04/2014 at 20:19

anyone know how to change the name of a thread???

I suspect the entries will take a little time to fill.  Challenge Barcelona did not fill so I suspect IM Barcelona will take a little time - it will sell out next year though...

I have seen nothing from anyone on transfer but I assume its automatic and I'll hear in the next week or so.

I paid via bank transfer and have heard nothing from challenge barcelona about confirmation, but I suspect they have had other things on their mind in the last month - like launching a new web site, new entry site etc etc etc 

fingers crossed as I have flights and a hotel

€395 very reasonable, for IM.

I wanna do this but caught between waiting a couple of months to know whether, logistically, I can and risking the event selling out vs paying for entry and chucking no less than 50% of the fee away if I have to cancel.  Urgh.

got a confirmation - we are in IM Barcelona

So is it the same race that was Challenge Barcelona? Or a new one

22/04/2014 at 12:57

Looking at the ironman website it says 1 lap of the swim, 2 long plus one short lap of the bike and 4 laps of 10k for the run which seems to be the same as the Challenge course.

I hope so, it was a decent course.

See you there SA?

As of 10 minutes ago ... I'm in.

04/05/2014 at 17:33

yay! - its a pirate rowboat!

04/05/2014 at 17:54
Since it seems now to be a semi-official outing, I'll need to read one of these numerous kit threads to find out how I go about sporting some black n yella in Barca...

beg, borrow or steal
