and a little Beaver in the morning
Am thinking of doing this as well as Bala,
Anyone else done this one before? Or anyone else up for it?
just outside Nottingham Puss.......
I have done the Little Beaver, I know a few have done the Middle
I have a friend who lives close by...
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:
I've just entered this
Any more tips on the course etc, bearing in mind I have th Vit to compare it to.
