Thanks Fraggle - I can't do the full IM any more, have to be satisfied with half. Doesn't sound like a good one for me if the surface is poor. Think I'll probably go for Challenge Vichy instead.

Sorry to put you off! But I know what it's like, and where the screws go into the bone can get painful with vibration, and this road surface is quite awful. I'd planned in doing the half this year and full next (with the rest of the pirates) but not so sure I can handle 112 miles on that road

The roads are crap.

My tri club has entered the relay this year, and their runner has dropped out......what to do?

But it won't be a case of !only 26 mile to go more a case of I have to run a bloody marathon.

It's flat though....XC surface....

........ And I've just compared bike profiles and Challenge Henley has 200 ft more climb overall than IM Wales. - but the swim and run are both flat as a pancake

What's the run course - 4 laps of the first bit of the half mara course?

And +1 for the crap roads - I cycled it last week, its terrible! Fortunately its doesn't affect my titanium screws as they are in my skull - and that's pretty thick!!

(In fact, Fraggle and IronWolf - we should enter as a relay team with the amount of titanium we appear to have between us - the Bionic Pirates?? )

And yes the run is 4x the first bit of the Henley half route

Excellent - so that's four times past the Little Angel - a pint each time should keep me going!!

Raf - now there's an idea! I'll swim or run and avoid those crappy roads.

Hope peeps are still keen for this? Really want to go with lots of Pirates, but as long as the quality is right, I can forgo quantity... (insert your own Meldy joke here!)    I'm sure I read HH and Ditchy were looking at this one? Must be more?

I am sure they were Gladys

Mind you I am not sure Ditchy hasnt gotten herself another fish to fry !!

All the 'newbies' seem to have been attracted by Outlaw which is understandable but a little bit of a shame for Henley ....

Lurks for a run leg maybe, save on hotel bills.

I was up for Lanza and Henley, but Lanza followed later by the full distance in Calais, or wherever it is attracts me slightly more at present.

I'm still undecided between this or IM Wales, awaiting races reports
