I suppose you need to think what you what kind of experience you want..i prefer the smaller ones and don't mind if i'm at the back.........but it can get lonely near the end of the run.....

 some people hate racing where there are hundreds of people around them..... taking their personal space...others thrive on it....

Cotswold 113 in June or the Cotswold Classic in August. Really nice for your first. It was my first and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

How about the DIY half in May and the Cotswold classic in August

It was my first - it was flat, so a lot of fast people wanting a PB (or just faster than me anyway).

A bit of a country hike to the swim start, but you wore shoes and a vehicle takes them back to HQ. The river swim was WELL COLD - but down river, and yes, very few people behind me, but who cares? A very pretty run through the grounds to T1, and then 2 and a bit laps of quiet country roads that came through the park each time, so good for spectators. (Bike route was a bit short by my reckoning)

The run route was lovely - 4 laps around the grounds, a bit off-road, but good underfoot.

Got a rather nice rucksak and a medal, but no goody bag or nosh after, but very enjoyable, and the other competitors I spoke to were really friendly (quite a few first timers like me). Oh and free, but very basic camping fairly near (but not quite as near as Outlaw).

Would definitely do it again
