.....anyone got a response?

No response yet, most races don't send out swim times until appx 1 week before the event. As I entered few weeks ago I am assuming that I am in as most organisers return your entry straight away if the event is full.

Fair point........but the cheque hasn't been cashed either.

Hopefully that means they won't cash the cheque until they confirm entries.

yes, let's hope that. We have organised this to be a family event with the boys doing the aquathon too and doing b&b aswell. Not having the cheque cashed does make the planning more difficult. I dont really fancy the 2hr drive on the same day & possibly an early start too.

Have you done the race before? I've done it a few times and I've always enjoyed it.

No, I assume the bike will be hilly?
07/05/2004 at 09:53
Oh yes, and so is the run.
The 1st km out of transition for both bike & run is the hardest. This is one of the very few times I use my lowest gear on the bike, so whatever you do don't leave it on the big ring.

Deep joy on finishing this one then.

So the bike,

worse than Mold?

worse than Clitheroe?

And surely the run can't be worse than Denbigh. They supply a grab rail there so you can fight for your last gasp of breath

(scoots off to the garage to see if there are any bigger cogs there)

I've not done Mold, Clitheroe or Denbigh so I can't comment.
My lowest gear is 42/23 and that is OK.
There are some good descents to look forward to, and the swim is as short as it gets, only 400 yards.

hmmmmm I'll look to see if I have a 23, i think.
