Officially branded as in my experience they are way better, even taking account of how good Outlaw is theres little comparison.

I am not overly sure now you mention it?

2015 may well have been the 'larger group'

If its a 2014 anniversary then people need to get saving entry fees now

I guess its a toss up between 2004 when Andy when Candy has a pirate sticker vs 2005 when we first raced in kit and could be called an organised pirate outing

My vote would go for Sweden, its the only European Ironman we've not been to

Sweden here too. By all accounts it was brilliant last year and it's in the school hols too. MDot may only be a brand, Max, but much as I loved Outlaw, IM Wales swaggered over, downed Outlaw's pint, snogged his bird and then battered it in a fight without breaking sweat .

And Meldy.... your comment made me laugh my ass off, because let's face it.... for most Pirates an IM is a 20 mile walk in a park with about 6 miles of jogging.

I bow to your greater experience Barlos as my official IMs have been 2 Sherbornes ho hum one Bolton better but still so so. BUT Wales really floated my boat it was all i wanted from a IM branded event
I had better get saving but i think Sweden may be a bit pricey for me

Didnt we come to an arrangement with the Ironman Austria organisers in 2006 re reserved/swapping entries between ourselves.

I think its worth an approach to any race we choose to see if we can oranganise a group entry.

Slower not to sure it was the brand that kicked Outlaws arse (and it did) more the people of Pembrokeshire who really got behind the event

I think we did Barlos .. was Austria in 2005? or was it Switzerland?

Either of which I would be happy to revisit

Totally and completely nuts, Max, weren't they? Brilliant! But I did enjoy the MDot gloss and international flavour too.

And I "got" your irony, Melds. I remember watching your run at Outlaw .
