Was just looking at entering my first middle distance and was considering entering the Cotswold 113.  Do people consider this as a good first middle distance?  Any other thoughts would be greatly received from a nervous shortround

I have never done it, but I have marshalled at it from it's inception last year.

2x laps for swim, 2x laps for bike (v flat and therefore v fast) and 3x laps for run.

Very very friendly set up. 

I have the bike route on mapmyride if you would like the link/tcx file

It changed in August to beung a 1 lap swim, which I prefer.

It was really nice and I would definitely recommend it as a first (mind you its the only half I've done)

I'd do it again this year but I think its a bit close ot Outlaw and the August is a bit too close to my London-Paris ride (I think)

bike route

lap 1 of 3
it was a bit different in August as there was a run route diversion due to the weather

You ask me

Bike Leg from mapmyride

To the right of the course map, there is the option to export as a gpx.


This should enable you to download straight to your hard drive.  If it doesn't I can mail it to you as a separate document

shortround - are you local to the 113?  If so, happy to go out for a ride around the course with you

No unfortunately i live near coventry, but have looked into it more and looks like a good course especially for first time middle distance.

But thank you for the offer

Hey guys

Thanks for your kind words on the event.

I have a .tcx file if anyone needs it or can answer any questions either through here or by email ( or phone (07595 591612)

Entries open on Nov 1st if you're interested in entering

The courses for 2013 will remain unchanged from what we had this year, although in the August event we had to shorten the run at the last minute due to flooding. I've been sending Nicci and the kids to church every sunday to pray for a dryer 2013, so hopefully we should run a dry course over the normal 13mile run distance
