Ive just read that there will be 2 offical IM races in the UK in 2005 :-

Full at Sherbourn (sp???)
And a half (location to be decided)

Good news

That sounds interesting. where did you read that about?

Sherbourne's in Dorset, IW - it's the location of HIMUK. Beautiful, with a castle and everything!

What !! ??
Have I missed something? I have already entered Sherbourne, and I'm certain it's a Half IM. I would be delighted if it's full but I don't think it is. (Cost £130 by the way)

2005, IB.

This month's 220 has all of the info.
Apparently 2004 Sherbourne Hawaii qualifiers will qualify for Hawaii 2004.
They are moving the Half IM to summer 2005, as Will says , location to be decided, and Sherbourne will host a Full IM in Aug 2005.
Let's hope the half goes back to Llanberis!

Yeah, Llanberis was a great location.

Can't beat Longest Day from Wolverhampton.

Having said that if the half goes to Llanberis I'd be tempted back to an M-dot run event.
The bike is spectacular.

(Sorry I'm on an Ironman downer!!!!!!!)

can do both ims now. who cares about LD!

(im joking by the way before theres a pile-on!)
23/11/2003 at 16:44
so theres only a £5 difference between LD (£135) and HIMUK (£130) next year?
23/11/2003 at 17:04
blimey that IS cheap.
it is good if you like the razzamataz of the big/commercial events. which (for my sins) i do :O)
23/11/2003 at 17:15
hmmmm, been a warm year hasn't it!
24/11/2003 at 11:27
and where has this rumour appeared from???

contact the BTA and Ironman live website - nether know nothing off this!!! - so take it with a pinch off salt!!!
24/11/2003 at 11:35
must admit, i cant find anything anywhere either
24/11/2003 at 11:42
will read it...
must be true :P

Thanks for asking JulieJoo. Better today..too tired to argue...early swim sesh.

You will find the rumour in 220 magazine. They don't usually get it wrong. 2005 definitely 2*IM sanctioned events.

Taste it, taste Longest Day and see which tastes nicest!

2 ims and LD.....too many possibilities and not enough money (or energy)
24/11/2003 at 12:09
saw it in 220 this morning. Don't know where the money is going to come from though?
Probably wont do TLD as well in 2005 in fact probably wont do the half either. May do Weymouth (much cheaper and a great race) if the timing is right.
24/11/2003 at 12:25
if my body can cope with LD next year then i may do himuk and imuk in 2005, otherwise just himuk.....or stick to sprints
