Am thinking of doing this as well as Bala,

Anyone else done this one before? Or anyone else up for it?

Mr + Mrs Oxy did it in 2007, I did it in 08 (along with Little Miss Happy).  The swim is seriously murky (no viz at all going round the buoys) and its in a fishing lake.  Loong run across a field to get to T1, bike course has a couple of cheeky upflats, but I do note that they are changing the course for next year.  The run is all in the grounds of he castle so minimal traffic to worry about, its a sort of cloverleaf shape, the rise up to the castle will have you puffing a bit, that aside its scenic and fairly well shaded if it happens to be warm. 

They offered the option of camping in the grounds, but the only facility is a cold water tap (and the portaloos in transition) so only really an option for the hardcore.

In Canada we have talking beavers:

Shiraz and I did both Beaver and Bala this year - the Beaver was actually harder and slower than Bala - the wind didn't help, the bike's a bit longer, and the run from swim to T1 is quite long with quite sharp straw!

FamilyLindi invited all the pirates to stay in 2010!
