Thanks Barley. My friend wants an IM brand for her first but can only commit to one during her summer holiday as she's a teacher. You answered my question spot on as usual.

Blisters, they would make it a Duathlon if the river was not safe. Not ideal but the same anywhere. Rivers a bit more prone, given currents and effluent/chemicals probably.

Blisters, re the swim. This year the current was good, and apart from one section, I dodn't notice much difference between up and downstream. I did do a river swim the other side of Henley (Shiplake) in the summer, and the current was much stronger :  it just took forever to get to the turnaround point, then you were back to the finish in no time.

there are several river swims and shorter distance tri's held over the summer locally, so there will be somewhere where you can try it out if you want to.

I don't think the full distance sold out this year - or if it did it was a last minute thing - so don't worry about entering the race as soon as it opens.

I might be considering challenge barcelona - shuffleB may be part of a exercise study that include 6 months coached training leadig towards this.....  She's in the next round of tests for it so looking hopeful.
I don't sherpa so may as well enter as well.....

Cake, would that be central as in the Nottingham area?

I'm not surprised to hear that any tri -organising committee would want to drum up support for their event from the single most influential group of financial supporters to their cause.

Was at a UK triathlon race yesterday and talking to one of there staff. They havn't finalized everything yet and ask us not to shut my mouth off on some of the details about what they are planning but there is a very good chance they might be announcing a race next week central uk wise.

Is it in Macc, mate? Have they offered The Assassins 50 gazillion quid to buy out their successful "DIY Half" franchise?

Cake i notice on the UK Tri site that the Trentham Tri is missing for 2013 so they must be doing this new event instead of Trentham.
