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
working oput if i want to do an Oly on staurday........quite fancy it despite being unfit and overweight at teh moment.......its £45......
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.
According to Outlaw fb page, details are supposed to be released by Tri247 sometime today.
Outlaw Half on Tri247
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.
i bet its 4 times round the lake on the 'multi lap run'
EDIT. they have replied to me on FB saying its not the plan to send people around the lake 4 times
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.
hmmm.........might be up for this.
CD - perhaps it means you still live in the village not the woods but also help fight the sherif?
oh, I want to do it, but am having doubts as to whether I am capable
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.
