I would hazzard a guess at £400 ... and then there is the cancellation tax

MrGFB is doing Lanza again next year (he took a break this year because of injury - he's done the last 7) - but he's doing the 70.3 in November...anyone doing that?  A good chance of qualify as it's limited to 850 people and it's not filled yet...and the 50 world championship qualifying spots.

I'd have a better chance of finishing 100 pint of guiness than Lanza. Then again i am Scottish, so i've probably got an unfair advantage on that front

Thanks Barlos .. i'm giving it some consideration for 2013. Guessing this one sells out pretty quickly ?.

OC.. looking forward to your report for the "how it compares"update. Best of luck mate.

**Customer Service Announcement**

For those that were asking what the cost of entry was/is

This years race was 400 Euro which is equating to roughly £320

Factor in a small increase and some cancellation insurance and its not too bad relatively speaking (in comparison to some we have done!!)

Registration opens on Tuesday 22nd May and the website states that it filled within 4 months last year

Rafikid - it's me Rowena (but I couldn't bear the real name business!) You're a newbie - and you're cycling all those miles? I'm still to work out which way is up on the bike... 

I spoke to my mother today. She says there are only muffins for the winners. I tried to tell her this isn't the sort of thing I will win. She said that isn't the attitude to have. I think I might have to leave her at home...

I like how we're all budgetting - but is anyone actually paying with real money?! Sponsored by Visa. 


M...eldy - Entries sell out within four months! You mean I don't need to be glued to the internet on the 22nd May going "will I, won't I" Four months of procrastination....

You have to convince your mother we are all winners really!!

And I only cycle to work coz I don't like paying for the petrol - I am Scottish after all!!

according to the competitor handbook we got this week, entry next year will be 400 euros + active europe admin fee when paying online.

Thanks for that Holgs .. helps with the budget

Rowens Muffins .. I wouldnt leave it too long, these races are exceeding the old supply and demand, hopefully the end of the month / pay day interface will be ok

Count me in. Bolton or Lanza for my first IM??

Got more chance of convincing the wife if she's getting a holiday out of it LOL

I'm afraid I have sold my soul to the nice people rennovating my house this year. For that reason, I'm out. But I shall watch you all train with great enjoyment.

I'm out too. 

I've got to have an operation this year that will take me out of training for 12 weeks. I also don't want another winter of having to train.

So next year I will probably be doing Outlaw or, if I'm brave enough,  IM Wales.

I'll credit card it on the 22nd as a birthday present for this year and thrill myself with pressing the submit button!

Jay - think Lanza is a way better holiday than Bolton. I'll be first time and so Rafikidi.

My mum has decided she is coming over with a transit van and Rowena's Mum plastered all over it. God help me.

Now back to watching this year's footage ....

My dads over there doing it now
