Just made decision....!
IMUK entries have opened to public (not pre-registered) today.
My Mrs has entered which means i'm going to Tenby for my IMW adventure this year.
dont worry about anything right now...split transitions isnt a problem...just means you finish the bike ride in a different place to where you start it!!
Its a great race!!!
You've got more chance of Wembley selling out for Englands next home game.
i dont think it will sell out till about April Mate...last year they had 1500 but you could still get places during March....every year they say they have 2500 pre-regs but i think thats just a carrot (which my mrs and 2 mates have all fell for)
you'll love the event though....Happy to Mentor you if you've not already sorted one...i live on the course so can take you for a loop or two during the spring!!!
PM me if you're not sorted for a pirate Mentor yet.
Cheers Andy appreciate that,
I live a bit of a jaunt away in gloomy old Torbay!!.... so may not be able to get up prior but any info would be great and pick your brains now and then.
I have trained for lots of running stuff (mostly marathons, ultras), and something tells me i will have this nervous training nervy nervousness from now (or rather Friday/entering day!) till August!!.....
no probs...many people travel from some way and camp for a weekend etc and ride round a bit...but i'm happy to help with any of the million questions you (or anybody else) might have.
some light reading for you before tomorrow

I think its about time I did a newbies guide to IM training to go with the sprint one, looks like it might come in handy.
here you go

Rdc - There is a thread that you will find on "Tritalk" dedicated to the debate, Outlaw v IMUK. Clearly everyone has a view point, but the general concensus appears to indicate that they are both great events and IMUK improves year on year. I have done neither, I hasten to add, so I can't give a view one way or another, that said I have entered IMUK this morning.
