Yeah, get back to work Trogs.

I understand all the comments re IMA for 2015 and entry difficulty but why IMCH again??  that's been done twice now, as will France have been, so it makes more sense that IMA deserves a revisit, or Frankfurt, which has only had one mass pirate visit in 2006

anyway, I'm retired so in reality not really bothered....

I believe because it was the first 'en masse' visit ...

I'm doing Austria this year, and while it does fill quick it's within a day or so - so plenty of time for folk to get an entry in if ready to go on the day it opens.

I agree with FB.  IMCH has been done TWICE before, it just seems silly to me to go back AGAIN.  Anyway, I will save my feet stamping until next year, and then probably see you all in Zurich in 2015 ;)

Following the updates on Facebook.  The course (scenery) looks a-mazaing!

Great conditions for it this year.

Feeling very tempted.....

Anyone have any entry / registration details?

D-day.

On a couple of occasions yesterday I logged on to Ironman live to catch some finish chute action.  I saw a heap of people coming through at 13hrs and stayed up to watch the last two.  The penultimate finisher was in his early sixties, bent double (literally) and delusional but the look on his face was the same as all the others when he registered what he’d achieved (that and the realisation that a cold beer and bed were the only other things in the agenda that day).

The course photos on Facebook also look awesome.

I am quite excited already.

What entry / registration details are you after iMuff?

10:55PM.  Coffee.  Credit Card and index poised over the "refresh" button.

You've got to give it to IM for being able to whip up such hysteria over what is essentially a ridiculous endurance event!

Never mind coffee, alcohol will be required.

Really fancy it. Only down side is it is on husbands birthday and (more importantly) my little boys the next day.

So take them to Austria for their Birthdays - bloody lovey out there this time of year!

agree, taking them is an option. Just not sure i fancy the addtional hassle and expense.

Best talk to OH before 11pm tonight.

Tick tock...

Btw I saw on a blog (don't ask where) that:

1) it opened 20 minutes early (so be prepared)

2) It said it was sold out continuously (don't lose hope)

3) There were still places in the morning (DO NOT Quote me on that! But don't dispair if you fall asleep!)

Good luck! I'm kinda hoping I can ignore the fact that 2015 falls right in the middle of my exams and come along to the pirate outing. Looks like an amazing race
