Hi all, anyone got a large (to accommodate my slowly shrinking belly!) size pirate tri top they are selling?
Want to run in one for the half distance at Whitchurch in August.
Sorry to Piggy Back on this Barnacle - but likewise in terms of size and in terms of event!
so if anyone happens to have two
I have a 'large' pirate monaco I'm probably not going to use in the forseeable. Used for two IMs but still in v good condition. If you two could just start a bidding war and come back to me...
DM me otherwise and we can work something out. First come first served.
only fair to let barnacle have first dibs on it
Thanks Budjude, very fair of you. Sweetfeet I just DM 'd you.
Budjude, look forward to meeting you at Whitchurch!
I just responded.
Thanks, just replied
no worries mate. hopefully i find one for myself before whitchurch!
Any other pirates racing the ultimate half in whitchurch 18th August??
The deal is done and the top is on its way to Barnacle. Great communication excellent payer A++++++
Thanks sweetfeet , looking forward to competing in Pirate colours at Whitchurch in August! Thanks for dispatching the top so promptly.
Hi Sweetfeet, the top arrived at my brothers address today, thanks very much.
Just out of interest Barnacle - what sort of time are you aiming for in the Ultimate Half?
if were the only two pirates racing there - please dont embrass me by finishing a couple of hours ahead
Don't worry about that Budjude its my first half distance and I've only been training for 6 months so the first thing I did was check that the old make the cut off times! I'm hoping about 45min for the swim, 3 1/2 hrs for the bike and then 2 1/2 for the run?
likewise in terms of being a first timer at the distance.
Just hope i finish; god only knows on the times, if everything goes 100% i would hope to be around 6 hrs, but more likely i think i will be 7hrs, so we could be on for a sprint finish....................
just to finish would be fine for me as well! Hard to estimate times when it's into the unknown ! Don't know about a sprint finish, don't think I'll have much sprint left in my legs by then!
maybe just a faster shuffle to the line race instead!
least i can confirm there is pretty much no hills knocking around - bike course is flat, but i think it might be on semi busy roads which might be 'interesting'
i cant wait - 62 days and counting
That's good news. Run is meant to be flat too. I,ve booked myself a place on the open water swim session the wed before the event, just to se what the lake is like to swim in. then we are coming over to Whitchurch on the Friday and staying at a hotel till sunday, so hoping get out on the bike and run course. Are there bike lanes marked on much off roads road course?
I'm looking forward to it as well, going to be a challenge!
