Just to open up the debate No Ironman for me this year but just getting ideas for 2014 2012 was great at the Outlaw being a UK race so a great turn out So for a abroad trip thats easy to get to to keep the cost down Hows about Challenge Almere/Amsterdam Sept 2014?? http://challenge-family.com/races/almere/index.html

I have yet to do my first Ironman, but if Outlaw doesn't finish me off, I like the look of that
Bloody Pirates, sneaky buggers never mentioned that this is addictive.

It should be flat and fast
NR beware Ironman is the Crystal Meth of endurance sport

Same here NR - I like the look of that as my first Ironman abroad.

If Henley doesn't kill me, of course.

I think some people have been thinking about doing Austria for the 10 year anniversary of the innaugural pirate race at said venue.

Shouldn't we be basing this on important criteria .... like where does the best beer??

31/01/2013 at 16:25

the beer in Austria in 2007 wasn't bad....from what I remember of it.....

as Austria sells out damn quick - like 10mins - then there needs to be some fast finger action to get lots in!!

FB is Austria flat I really fancy a fast course for a change, also what time of the year?
If it books that quick it may be nice to have a back up outing for those with slow thumbs or diminished bank accounts when Austria opens

I thought it was 2015 for the anniversary do ?

Barlos was on about Sweden for next year but I think that price might be a bit prohibitive

Last time i in Amsterdam (80's ) i had my head shaved withan open razor into a moheican by apunk in a bar (beer had been consumed) bit embarrassing when i went back to work as i was in the RN at the time

It wont be that much different with the Pirates ....

31/01/2013 at 19:35
Exactly

I wouldn't place too much on what Barlos said as he *may* have Kona in 2014 and will be told to think long and hard about his priorities

No R-Max, Austria isn't flat. Nor is Switzerland.

I fancy Challenge Almere as it has a half as well and I can't do the full IM any more because of my titanium hip. Time I joined another Pirate trip. Don't be fooled into thinking it's flat and easy though, friends who have been there say it can be pretty tough biking in the wind there.

Ironman is tough, its never a walk in the park (well ... when I say walk in the park ...)

A flat course provides equal problems as it solves, that said there are relatively quick courses out there and after this year I think they will definitely be on my radar!!

Whats all this about flat courses, theyre all hard! Grt a grip people.

I think we should do an official branded Ironman for 2014, we've dicked about in the uk at unofficial races for 2 years, its time to get the ship back on course.

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

True Melds I have some hilly IMs under my belt but the hardest was deffo my first Outlaw got a massive PB but i was in bits for ages after
Almere could be a twat (lke Outlaw) if its windy it sounds a good race the middle has been running for years andits easy to get to
