Think of the downhills

The run bit - that's a wall, surely?

Apart from a pimple the last 41km (25miles) is downhill. Even if not quite a true reflection of the reality it could leave 45minutes-60minutes downhill!

Then nicely stiffened up start the run. The final climb is about 1100m in 8km. So a bit like legging it up Snowdon from Llanberis (train is 7.5km and climbs about 1000m).

The swim looks pretty flat!

I like the name of the highest pass on the bike - Furkapass.

I think that might get renamed by those doing it!

Can we choose which direction we do it in ?
25/06/2013 at 17:21

No one considering it then  ?

I'm racing. Although with training being a bit restricted it may be more getting round.

Anyone else?

Looks awesome watched the youtube videos on this again last week.  I have a feeling that it is edging on to my bucket list.

Will try and watch your progress Chopsy. Bit flat for you though?

Living in Norfolk - I think that looks truly terrifying!!

if that is too hard, you could try this one:

you get to swap bikes half way and do some off-road biking too. I tried doing some hill reps on that run course once, didn't even manage one little rep

A couple I know did that race. It's a toughy that's for sure.

Hi there,

I was there yesterday and "participated" as supporter of one of the athletes. It's a very tough and beautiful race.

Please find on the link below some nice pictures and enjoy the scenery!

Have fun

I had a go.... was simply awesome and takes hard to another level, was too f*&ked to even eat at the finish. 

I know a couple of 9hr IMs who took over 14 hours, I came in just under 16..... 

As a life 'experience' I can't recommend it enough.
