Is the Wales ironman the only late season event next year?

I would like to sign up for one but dont fancy Wales for my first one?

Challenge Henley ? 8th September I think ?

these are the latest IM distance events next year:

  • Ironman Wales (8th September)
  • Challenge Henley (8th September)
  • Hardman (15th September)
  • Horseman (15th September)
  • The Brutal (21st September)
but for your 1st, I really wouldn't entertain any of the last 3 unless you do have a good few screws loose!!   they're at the more extreme end of the LD events

Hmm that Brutal looks interesting - and fairly local for me !

Ironman Wales is meant to have a "hurrendous" cycle so that just leave challenge Henley.

Oi !

Already booked in for Henley next year - but 2014 might be good for the Snowdon one. I see you need support crew for the last leg. I need sherpas !

If I was doing the half outlaw in June but then had to take a month or so off proper training for holiday purposes, would it be realistic to come back and train enough to still be ready for Wales or Henley?

What makes the run so bad?  The Wales ironman does appear challenging but then i you're not going to find an IM that isn't.

I might be support at the brutal for a mate, looks "interesting"

sj - the run at IMW is basically 4 times up and down a hill.   surprisingly I didn't find it as bad as some others I've done and got my 2nd fastest IM run time there.  the bike's a real bugger if you're a big fella like me - those constant hills just take it out of you.
