Anyone else signed up for this? From the same people who brought you Helvellyn, which was a real blast.

Using the landing jetty sounds worryingly like a dive-in start job

I'm signed up and it's my first race with an open water swim.

Nervous doesn't really cover how I'll be feeling on the day .... especially if it is a dive-in start !!!

No-one else then?

Only 4 weeks. Jeez - Derwentwater will be fecking cold. Lakes local to me (in the Peaks) are running at about 6degrees at the moment - not much time to warm up!

This road or offroad tri?

The bike is a reasonably flat road route, the run is a 6.3 mile '8km' fell run over Walla Crag.

Looks fun.

Hmmm maps a bit carp, can't make contour lines out. Give it a miss. I want an off road tri. Bike and foot.

Dave/Ste/anyone else - best of luck tomorrow for this one. The forecast ain't too bad - 13deg and a bit breezy.

My first OW swim this year . I'm trying a neoprene hat covering my ears to try to avoid the usual chunders - I'll be the one looking like a black condom.

Just chucked the bike in the car Will be driving up in a while..

Have fun !

What a great event. My first OW swim tri and I'm not sure I'll ever do a better event! The organisation, marshalling etc. was top class, and the location absolutely stunning.

 Definately one for next year. Though I think I'll have to get entered early once word gets round how good it is!!

Loved this one - the organisers really know how to put on a good show, and the course is superb - exactly like a mountain tri should be. A fine baby brother to Helvellyn.

Yeah good race, accommodation booked ready for next year !

Hats are OK, but decent ear plus do more for me in stopping the cold water effects.

There seemed to be loads of photographers around the course - a few hundred shots here
