Most sprints are 35 these days , but when alls said its an expensive sport which ever way you look at it. If I don't spend it on race entries it goes on gadgets and gear

I keep trying to hide how much I am spending so my OH doesn't realise. I don't mind paying for a well-organised event, and when you think of how much organisation goes into a triathlon it isn't surprising they are pricey

i dont think its THAT expensive...it is a bit...about 100 quid for a half is the norm...and OSB put a lot in.....need to have a chat with my coach really to see if it fits in with what he plans for me next year (yep i'm taking it that seriously)

You know you want to Seren, and it looks like its going to be a dry day too

When Cake told me the price yesterday I was a bit surprised - it's definitely at the higher end for a half. I'm still tempted though...

Oh, and I'm doing (bronchitis permitting ) a sprint tri on Sunday - £50!

sarah - hope you are well enough for the weekend. Weather is picking up a bit at least.

Wild boar is ??60 so half the price of half the price of outlaw ;) if it's more than ??100 then to much for me I've pushed boat out for a ??250 race so prefer to do SA's half and do a half with Pixie at Bosworth. I know it's not the same as doing a proper event but would prefer to spend money on kit ready for a comfortable (if their is such a thing??) 17hrs on 7th July

They should of realised the half at same time and did it as a package!!??

Released next month, so Maybe Monday?

It will be interesting to see how much of a course preview it will provide.

Cotswold 113 was £75, I've poaid nealy £60 for sprints before (I know I need my head examining). There was something in 220 magazing showing Blenheim as one of the most expensive tris.

I guess its partly what I can get out of it as to if I enter. Its my first year of IM so if it will be 'useful', then I'm in.

Blenheim sprint was listed as the most expensive tri on a pounds per mile basis.

I'm having trouble with the concept of a half outlaw.  I mean, you're either outside the law, or you're not.  There's no halfway house.

CD - perhaps it means you still live in the village not the woods but also help fight the sherif?

27/09/2012 at 17:30

oh, I want to do it, but am having doubts as to whether I am capable

27/09/2012 at 17:31

in a way I almost daren't say anything at tri club in case they laugh/think I am stupid.

it is ok here, feel safe from ridicule

I missed out on the full one this year- they didn't synchronise with my pay day . Not sure about the half. I live so close I do the cycle route occasionally. Loved the full last year, so thinking of doing IMUK, not sure about the split transition though. Any other IM others have done they reccomend?  I am on reserve list for Outlaw but seems so popular this year could be a long shot.

I'm very tempted with this.
