I did Weymouth last year and it was ok. The organisation seemed fine from what I can recall: a sea swim (possibly a bit short), can't remember much about the bike to be honest except there was also a local cycle club time-trialling on a stretch of the route. The run was two laps of Weymouth suburbs. Running in the cold rain past locals, looking aghast, as they waited for the bus was entertaining in its own way but I suspect there are more picturesque routes out there.

Thanks for the list people a few on there i did not no about. Weymouth is probably the best choice for us as we have a boat that sails straight there. But on the other hand a couple of the guys have done it before and we would like something a bit more scenic. From my point of view i swim in the see all year round so would not mind a lake swim. Would like to find out more about the new forest one, so any info on that would be good, or any more recommendations.

and if anyone fancies a German half, we've got two near us, (unfortunately both on the same day) 10 June. smiley lady did Kraichgau this year with us (we got passed by Faris Al-Sultan there) and foggy came to Maxdorf last year (this time the rocket on the bike was Normann Stadler).

we've got 3 spare double bedrooms, except you must not be afraid of or dislike large furry dogs!

hey jus.

new forest is definitely happening this year, but it's the first time so no-one knows what it's going to be like. bike course looks very scenic. the run course looks tough: all off-road on trails and fire-roads.

i'm doing it as my first middle distance (anyone else up for it?) so can let you know what it's like in about 6 weeks' time.

I have applied for Ironman 70.3 not yet received confirmation of entry not until June next year so plenty of time to get the biking up hill sorted

Three spare double bedrooms you say, very tempting but a bit to far to travel for my first.

New forest sounds like it could be a very good one. The off road run section is especially my kind of thing. Look forward to reading some views on this one when it is finished.
