I'm in. Swim start is 1 mile from my house..... so I have no other expense apart from the entry fee. Still.... nearly £400 spent, I'll have to stop going to the pub and train to recoup the costs

I'm in the Big one in Bolton  So excited & scared ! 

Doing the ironman double next year = ironman70.3 and ironmanUK.

Better get out on those hills for the next 11 months, after Henley (half dist).

What have I done ??!!!

I'm in!!

Although my bank refused the transaction at first. Nothing dodgy about a £397 payment going out via a public wifi connection in Cyprus...

Hi folks.  I'm new here.  I've just signed up for Bolton and am also doing the 70.3 in June. 

The wife thinks I've gone insane and she might be right!

9sqrun - I added you.  If the gaps are large between names - delete the gaps and hold SHIFT when you press ENTER.  Puts the name on the next line without a gap between.

Looks like it has the makings of a busy thread again this year

Hi everyone,

I'm new on here and thinking 2014 could be my debut Ironman year! The ironman Uk bike sounds quite daunting though but I did do Ironman UK 70.3 two years ago which was pretty hilly. Has anyone done both and how do the bike courses compare (apart from the length!)? This could convince me....!

23/08/2013 at 20:14

Thanks Woody, I was a bit reluctant to add myself being a newbie!

I'm in, back again for 2014.

Looks like I will be picking up where I left off a couple of weeks ago with lap or two of IM again on Sunday.

I am in again

Hi RosieRunner2

I have done both twice (Wimbleball in 2009/11, Bolton 09/10).  Apart from the length I think Wimbleball is a tougher bike course.  Sheephouse lane (approx 2 miles) is the only real hill at Bolton (although you do it 3 times) whereas some of the Wimbleball hills I thought were harder.

If you've done Wimbleball you'll be fine at Bolton - just need to ride for longer.

Hope this helps.

Also, UK FB page says it has nearly sold out about 10 minutes ago - if you are thinking of entering

24/08/2013 at 10:24

Yeah, twitter says almost full as well. Is it still prereg only or is it general entry now?

24/08/2013 at 10:33

Still prereg.  Don't think general entries open until 1 Sep as prereg code is valid until midnight 31 Aug.

24/08/2013 at 10:38

Wow, looks like there may not be a general entry then!
