We've often talked about it, but anyone fancy doing our own dualthon event say late Nov/early Dec ? More a training blast than an event, something like the BB run/ride/run format, except ....

- We'll organise it (in the loosest possible sense, so you can't sue anyone!)
- Probably in Richmond Park (closer to home for me, easier course for the newbies)
- It'll be free
- Maybe alternating laps, just to mix it up a bit ?
- Pub lunch nearby after ?

Suspect the Royal Parks would want money and/or permits if we looked too organised, so best keep it low key and unofficial.

If we can't sort out a sherpa or two to mind the transition area I'm happy to do it. Any takers ?

I would happily consider it providing it's not on 21st Nov as I am already doing a duathlon that day

I don't mind acting sherpa for transition area.

I would be in for some fun in London... might have to do the bike part on one of those blue bikes though.... all more fun.  Nov is a quite busy but something could be done.  I'm in London visiting the 2nd weekend of nov.

Pkim - if we can both make the same date I may (only a may) have a bike you could borrow, dependant on size etc

Sounds like a plan Kanga I would be interested

Could be fun! If you don't mind I might try to drag my wannabe Pirate colleague down for it as well!!

Like the sound of the pub lunch.......if I can fit it in amongst the chaos of Nov / Dec then I'll be there.

Anything for you, Meldy

The Green Man at Putney Heath is one nearby option for food & drink, but plenty of others.

Barley and I are planning a 10ish mile run that Saturday arvo, CBA lugging the bike up as well
24/10/2010 at 21:09

Kanga - just a thought but you have not mentioned poss distances.  If you are doing hardcore stuff I will wimp out and maybe do transition. So the question is.......

What distances do you have in mind?

RP is around 7 miles around on the bike. There are loads of options on the running bit, up to 7 miles around....

Loos onsite, cafes, free parking, it's actually an inspired idea by Kanga, but then convicts are ever resourceful!
