a number of people are doing various IM events this year, and a number of others are considering moving up to ironman distance next year....

so how about a big trip out?

who's up for it, and which one? i'd go for Lake Placid (late July)

Ooh I'd love to depending on when it was...MM, would you?
26/05/2004 at 13:34
Just beat me...
yes, all being 'well' I'd be up for this on '05...
26/05/2004 at 13:36
Do they have a 1/2 as well?

come to think of it...all you IM people on here, name me some IMs which have the full and the half (maybe one on Sat one on Sun) - are there any?

how does late July grab you?

a 'good' thing about the north american ones is that one has to put one's money where one's mouth is, so to speak, as they fill up immediately - so you know you have 1 year to train

WildWill, Rich Melik & me signed up for Florida 04 the morning after last years race - and a few hours after that, it was full

Nic - not sure i'll find the website

Im defo up for a Ironman next year, have Florida pencilled in already. Can do any time except for late May to early June as im on Best Man duties.

Would prefer one in USA really, one on the ITU rankings where there will be some big stars there. I.e. one with a bit of a reputation that people will have heard of.

Ah silly me, thought Lake Placcid was in Canada.

Yep ill do that one, looks big enough for me.
26/05/2004 at 14:40
looks like a nice course... two laps up and down a little hill on the bike
26/05/2004 at 14:41
you were thinking of lake flaccid, carl

that's in wolverhampton
26/05/2004 at 14:42
looks a 'nice' course... Count me in! But Nic... looks like its go big or go home! Didn't see any 1/2 IM details...

You can do it...
26/05/2004 at 14:49
no, no half IM

i'm not aware of any that do both at the same time, because they both need to lay on massive logistical operations (kayaks, closed roads, rescue divers etc etc)

Nic - of course you can - its 14 months away!
26/05/2004 at 14:55
I could be interested
