Ithis is so going to be the half ironman race of the year 

It was the half ironman race of 2012, Actually it was joint top race of any distance in 2012. The fact I only did two races is by the by, but it was definitely on par with the Outlaw.

He dosen't have any Tri history, runs a lot (Marathons /  24/12 hour endurance events) Bikes a far bit, dosen't swim, so should fit right in here and he dosen't live a million miles away from you Razor so should be up for when we do another ride out.

 

Platty if you are interested in having a go, stick your name on the list and keep watching for updates!

That's expensive! A bag of chips is only £1.20!

This sounds pretty damn good to me. Ironmans and halfs all seem to cost as much as or even more than my entire year's race budget which in any case for 2013 has already been allocated well in advance.

Not sure yet on the timing but can I be provisionally added to the list please?

34 people WOW

After much swaying one way then the next about the swim.

It will be in the local pool

We couldn't get the lake until 12:30 which would mean some people wouldn't be finishing till after 8 at night.

I am still in discussion with the local pool about being able to have exclusive use of the pool for 1 hour Saturday and Sunday.

The bike course will remain as is but 12 laps which will make the full 56 miles and the run course will be tweaked slightly to make the full 13.1 miles.

In the new year we will start asking people what day they will be participating.

Please also be aware that the Monday is Bank Holiday for those traveling some distance, people are than welcome to sleep over Sunday night, depending on the weather we may have some sort of BBQ on the Sunday when everyone has finished, but there will be food on at the finish both days and if people feel the need to bring bacon/sausages/bread etc this will be more than welcome.

I feel that the event has really taken hold and would people like some memento of the day? medal / t-shirt for example.

This sounds great - looking forward to it and I'm happy  to be in a pool cos a lake in May is a bit cold. 

15/11/2012 at 18:54
Medals? Real medals? Nah. Keep it DIY. More fun that way. Chocolate medallion and home made certificate would do me fine

Tattoos! people like tattoos, I can bring some ink and a rusty nail.
