Weird Idea?

our calendar of events shows this year's Koln (Cologne to you) Tri on 6/7 September has a bunch of different events:

a corporate sprint - for company teams

Oly race


IM distance

226 Extreme  - combines the long distance event with the sprint. So you do 700m swim 24km bike and 7km run on Saturday, then the standard 3.8/180/42.2km on Sunday, times for both are combined for final results.

Thoughts anyone?

I'm hovering between " that's a weird idea" and "might try that".

Talk about a "weekender"!

I think it's a great idea but I'm nowhere near up to it.

How quick does it fill IW?

Still looks like I will be working in Germany by then, so if the family's settled(a big IF?) and I'm in a reasonable state I might look to do an event in Germany August\September.

At the moment F nose!

swimming in perfume sounds like a stupid idea to me.

There's an event in Oz or NZ (can't remember which), whereby you do an IM distance in 3 chunks. Something like a sprint on Fri night, Oly on Saturday and then a third tri on the Sunday where you complete the required distances to make it up to Full IM distance over the three events.

G-sport - don't know, it's still a new event but most races in Germany fill up quite quickly. Another great race is the Remagen Oly on 14 Sep, it's near Bonn and the swim again is in the Rhein, it's longer than normal at 2.8km but because the current is so strong, even I did it last year in 25 mins!

couple of club mates have said today they are thinking of going to Koln.

I would love a chance to visit Bonn/Koln but when I mentioned it to Zuppy he kindly reminded me I will be on a boat somwhere in the channel at that time....

clashes with Vit..... pity.  Defo sounds like a bit of a challenge.

SL - I'd rather be in the boat than in the Channel!
