Lots of comments about the quality of the Hudson for the swim. The temp in NY during August for the bike and run.

You think an IM in NYC is hard?

Wait till you see me shop.

This will be a perfect prelude to a Stateside Stag do in next August next year, which I am responsible for organising.  Oh and I might even be good enough to buy the groom entry as a wedding present....

And only $1000 to enter.....


Plus flights, accommodation, (litle chance of camping!)

Would love to but think I'll leave that one to those with deeper pockets. Besides, I'm saving up for Kona!

"Oh and I might even be good enough to buy the groom entry as a wedding present...."

I'd check with his future missus first if she'd be happy with that!! make a change from a toaster though.....

this will sell out in minutes I reckon

$161,000 average salary....I am in the wrong job!!
08/06/2011 at 10:26
"And only $1000 to enter....."

following on from that - "The cost may not deter competitors. About 2,000 of the approximate 3,000 competitors in the 2010 NYC Triathlon worked in the financial services industry, race officials said, and Ironman competitors have an average annual income of $161,000, according to World Triathlon."

$161K eh?

I'd better take a paycut then....

Isn't that about £100K?

I'm not getting out of bed for that.

doubt i'll be doing this next year though!!!

"$1,000 entry" ... hmm ... I overlooked that part.  Then again, the cheeky b@stard did enter me into the Berlin Marathon last year without any prior warning.  This could be very satisfying payback.

I expect to be rejected for this if entry to the NYC mara is owt to go by - $1000 , ti s once in a llifetime i suppose - but the costs will certainly add up - though surprisingly enough - the missus said whilst  your on the bike i'll be in the city spending

now that to me says - book it!!

i bet swiss bobby will get to be tourguide on this too - raggy bugger

Sorry Sore Shins I will not be tour guiding the NYC IM...

Quite how they get to call it that i dont know... the course is nearly all in NJ. only the last few miles of the marathon is in NYC running across the George Washington Bridge... 

The Race in Quebec looks a lot more attractive to me. Ironman Mont Tremblant

Yes the Canadian race looks far nicer to me.

I'm not sure I fancy the Hudson river swim. Isn't it full of mafia victims ?
