KateF - I've done quite a few RNF races (inc the Sept Middle you did), this years FM bike loop (and next years ?) is similar in terrain to the middle dist, the FM run is the same bit out to the ridge (via the road), but then laps of the ridge. The new run route for the middle distance this year was tough, but the FM stays on the ridge.

Would anyone be interested in helping me out?

I'm looking at going into duathlons and am a complete newbie to running and biking racing events. It's actually my first timed race (a park run) tomorrow! It would be nice to have a bit of swim advice too but I'm very keen to compete in duathlons.

A bit about myself, I'm 21, at uni in Notts, 6 foot 4 (hence the name) and have a background in semi-professional football - so won't be starting from scratch, I am already quite a fit person just need to turn myself towards endurance.

A few warnings if you do want to help me out:

1. I can literally discuss training/nutrition etc all day every day. I love it. Don't worry about telling me to shut up because if you don't, I never will 

2. As a newbie I don't have an excess of knowledge, but want to, so be prepared for a lot of questions!

Anyone who is happy to drop me a PM or reply on here

Ay up Pole just in case the mentoring thing on here is set up for ironmans so you might get talked into stuff.  I can help with the running/cycling part and can give some advice about the swimming. Just sent you my e-mail afraid the pm messaging thing isn't working that well at the moment so might not get your reply. e-mail us chuck if you want.

Thanks TR, I've done the Hearbreaker marathon which I think is the same route?

Thanks Gaz, I am unfortunately in North Cumbria. I have joined Arragons Tri club and am going to their swim training which is a help. I am going to go on my first club ride tomorrow, hopefully I won't be left behind too early!

KateF - i think thats the same run route as the FM. The Tritalk folks rave about FM, its not the sort of race that would appeal to most Pirates though. I only race 1/2 IM distances but would consider FM if I was going to race longer.

01/11/2013 at 17:53

Right, sold TR. I'm doing Cotswold full in Aug which is completely different so hopefully will feel easier by comparison.

forestman i would guess 


01/11/2013 at 18:27

KateF - its supposed to be slightly eaiser than the Middle Distance but obviosuly is double the length, it certainlt cant be twice as hard as the Middle. It never usually sells out, so you can enter nearer the time. I might do one of the other distances, but will probably do the Swashbuckler instead which is 2 weeks later.

Cake - Forestman, there are some films of it on YouTube or on the Race New Forest web site.

Yup, FM is Forestman, I've entered and Mr F is doing the Boskman 3/4 distance.
