Good shout- doubt if Premier Inn Marlow have any wedding receptions

BTW Challenge Henley folk just went one notch up in my estimations. I lost a pair of Oakley sunnies in T2 and thought that was that. On the off chance they might have been handed in I called the Challenge team and hey presto they were in lost property and are now winging their way to me.....my faith in mankind is restored.

Whats the parking like Bedders - as I plan to exploit the comfort of my own bed!!

At the event? It needs a bit of planning TBH. Lots of it but split Transition means your car is at T1 about 2 miles from the finish. Options are cycle back to your car along the road (with bags and wetsuits around your neck) or take the water ferry which I did not want to wait for. Or have a sherpa park at the Finish (easy) take all your gear for you and cycle back to T1 without all the clobber (what I did). They may of course have a different system in 2013 

If however you mean parking at the Premier Inn Marlow I have absolutely no idea!!!!

Cheers - I meant at the event. Think I'll go for the sherpa approach!!

Hi.

Newby alert.

Should I book one night or two? I mean, is there any reason to stay on after the event? Like a piss up.

Blisters, as this is the official Pirate Champs for next year,  there is normally an 'award ceremony' the following day, which I believe may involve alcohol - so you may want to book an extra two nights!

"like a piss up"??? You think we do this for the exercise and glory?! Of course there's a pissup!!!

There will indeed be a pi$$ up and awards ceremony the following day.

All the sheilds and the Gladys'ing prize will be up for grabs

Gosh hotels already!
I've entered the Half because I'm a bit poor at the moment and a half is enough to keep me out of trouble for the year without the mammoth training hours.
I'm also gonna be a sherpa.

There will be trouble when the List Fairy spots what you've done.

I live to upset the Fairy....... although I won't live for long when she finds out

Good job irondreamer. My first too. I wouldn't hang around too long for hotels - at the Premier Inn they don't take any money until you've checked out so you've little to lose. I also paid an extra £10 or so to allow me to modify the booking at any time, in case things change.

Right, when can I start asking questions about Fink...?

10/10/2012 at 21:07

My first too chaps - I'm pleased that I'm by no means on my own here. We've got a motorhome so we'll (me - and the wife and offspring support team!) be staying at the Caravan Club site just down the road.

I'm booked into the Premier Inn Marlow too, with the £10 supplement. For Saturday and Sunday nights. My current thinking is that the family might not even bother coming. Alternatively they will just visit Sunday. One consideration is that I might end up in Henley/Marlow on my own and over the limit, trying to hitch to a station!

Blistres/Cheggers/Bagder and anyone else - just to let you know, I'm fairly local to Henley and do a fair bit of cycling round parts of the course, so if you have any logistics questions feel free to ask.

Also happy to organise a recce of the course nearer the time if anyones fancies it?
