Spot on leKK, from tri247:

"After the two successful 'spin-offs' of the Quelle Challenge Roth in Wanaka, New Zealand and Niederbronn Les Bains, France (where the premiere of the new half-distance competition will take place on May 25th) TEAMChallenge has now granted two further licences for events in Spain. On May 10th, 2009 the Evolution Challenge Costa Barcelona Maresme, a half ironman-distance triathlon, will take place for the first time in the Barcelona region at the beautiful Costa del Maresme. On October 4th, 2009 there will be a full ironman-distance triathlon on the same race course, the Challenge Costa Barcelona Maresme"

Here is the youth hostel prices approximately per person per night b&b....

4 bed room with washbasin CHF 40

3 bed room with washbasin CHF 47.50

4 bed room with shower/WC CHF 45.50

3 bed room with shower/WC CHF 52.50

2 bed room with shower/WC CHF 63.50

1 bed room with shower/WC CHF 109.50

To give you an idea of the amount of accommodation i have had to organise in France we have 72 people staying at the Hotel Ibis

That means all 16 double rooms + 10 4 bed rooms....

I am proposing to book Thursday till Tuesday and if people want to stay longer you can book directly with the YH for your extra nights.

I think we will get a reduction of about 5 CHF pppn by doing a group booking. But i have to make certain guarantees, sign contracts and give credit card number etc...  We can chat further about this at Nice but i want the info out there for you all to make your choices.

Why am I even thinking about this????  I am a mechanical nightmare, sink like a stone and would probably have to sell my body to afford a bike that can cope with this...

But then... it is a year away... 

No...  Nooo....  >slaps self repeatedly<

To reasure those who are wibbling... here is the truth about how bad we all were when we started this game... another thread

 I could not swim a length of a 25m pool... i had no bike.... and i ended up doing a non wetsuit IM 10 months later... the best motivation is to enter and just do it...

 You can delay the bike purchase till January... sometimes get some great deals - last year models etc...

 Just get swimming a bit
