Cotswold 113 have today announced the ball is now well and truly rolling for a new event in their portfolio; the Cotswold 226 during the Summer of 2014

It will be a full iron distance event on a different course to that used on the 113, and although in the early stages of planning it promises to be very flat (and therefore fast) indeed.

(Also not well publicised by the team at Cotswold 113 is the efficient bike feed station they have.  That in itself is the biggest reason to enter )

So if you want to be part of the inaugural race please visit their website and register for their newsletter and updates

 "Flat" and "Cotswolds" are 2 words that don't normally go together in my experience!!

This will be a great race if the popular Cotswold 113 is anything to go by. 

Great organisation and a fast course - this could have PB written all over it!!

Could be my A race next year if on the right weekend.

It *could* be The One for me, too!

But I am not going to make any rash decisions, although I am giving it thought

WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!

They have put on three awesome middle distance events in the last two years - I have done two of them. Had a feeling this was going to happen, and I hoped it would be this year for my IM debut. Was supposed to be my one and only (promised the missus) but this would just be too good to miss. Can feel a 'chat' coming up...

On the up side - she loves the feel at their events, the camping is close to race HQ and transition and I am sure she wouldn't take tooooo much persuasion to go through all of this again in 2014???

Interesting .... 

I am thinking that next year I might like to try a quicker race (for me) to try and give me a better time for the year after

Will keep an eye on this one I think

Oo that sounds smashing. Was aiming for 113 this year but circumstances haven't allowed. Would be a good double whammy next year! Schmunkee - how chilly are the lakes currently?

MrsD - I haven't dared venture to Lake 32 this year. Will prob go at start/mid May. Gissa shout if you want company at any time; morning, evenings and weekends

Popping over for the sprint in May, so dipping a toe in prior should be a plan. Brrrrrr!

Sorry, Schmunkee, I forgot to mention that we had the best bike aid station people in the industry 
Details on the race are still at a very early stage, but we'll aim to make it as flat as possible and it'll certainly be a PB course, as well as friendly and welcoming for those new to the distance.
Like the 113 and Classic, we'll let entrants choose numbers, rack with their mates and if we do waves, then they'll get to choose their wave too so they can race with their mates. Also, like our existing races, if you want marmite sandwiches or cut oranges on the aid station, let us know and we'll provide them (within reason as Buluga cavier and lobster thermodor are expensive and not great for racing on! haha)
I'll keep you all posted as when info gets fixed, but thanks for everyone's enthusiam already, we're going to do our very best to make it a great race and keep the costs low whilst offering more

I've just bought a 7mm wetsuit with 5mm jacket oversuit: is that allowable?
What about the fins and scuba tank?

Seriously, keep in touch Schmunks.

This has probably sorted 2014 for me. Only ever done hilly ones, so a flat'ish and fast one would be good. Just need the dates released now n

I think I've found something to do next year

I did the August half last year and plan to again this year. It was a cracking event!

I have just paid my membership to Lake 32 for the coming year and so I am happy to escort anyone as a guest if they wish and the dates are convenient for me
