Split times

The following splits are based on the course used in 2012 and may change for the 2013 event. The times below will be recorded for each athlete:
No. 1: Swim Turn (1,900 km) · No. 2: Swim End (3,800 km)
No. 3: Bike Start (0,000 km) · No. 4: Bike End (180,000 km)
No. 5: Run Start (0,000 km) · No. 6: Run Turn 1 (6,103 km) · No. 7: Run Turn 2 (9,520 km) · No. 8: Run Turn 3 (12,937 km) · No. 9: Run Turn 4 (18,780 km) No. 10: Run Turn 5 (24,623 km) · No. 11: Run Turn 6 (30,466 km) · No. 12: Run Turn 7 (36,309 km) · No. 13: Run End (42,195 km)

That should make for a few uneasy spectators at home .. no splits on the bike except start and finish!

As you can tell I have been reading through the race info ... nothing like a raised HR to keep me awake at night
I am less  concerned about bike cut-offs as I was in the early years but it is still a reality if all things weather related conspire against us (lets face it the build up hasnt been great!!)  The bike cut does seem to be fairly generous with a 6.30pm cut off time with the swim starting at 7am

I have ready through the FAQs so no need to traipse up for the briefing either

no nudity ..... no drafting ..... no chip, no finish .....  no coaching .... blah blah blah

I'm guessing that the run distances above are in meters not kms?

Thanks for the insurance stuff above.

I hope so, my arse could not stand 180,000 km on the bike.

Seren, I have a place in the White horse challenge going free!!

Was originally signed up before a mate said she wanted to go to Tenby for her 40th, it's why I'm doing the Hay one the week before instead.  So there's a place if you want one

The Hay course says it's hilly, what that translates to in metres I've no idea, lol.

Melds - I like to start as soon as I can at WHC as it's a long one. So would want to go as soon as they open the floodgates. Whatever time that is?

What he said ...

its 'only' 90 miles innit?

Will aim to start from 8am then if we can, Mousey/Seren do you want company or do you not want to wait for me on the downhills  ??  

07/04/2013 at 20:59
Don't mind really. If we all fire off at 8am and then see how we naturally divide?
07/04/2013 at 21:00
Have you done it before btw?

Pingu.yes I'm in for blaenavon.not sure why as I never do pool tris....but that one is one i have wanted to do for a while.....the organisers still won't let me use a poolbuoy so i will have to breats stroke the swim.......

and the bike course is still covered in snow and ice at the moment...and pot holes......
