Mine's on the 4th April at Blandford in Dorset and is a short one. 400m swim, 15 miles bike, 4.75 run.

Hope it's not too cold!

Don't think i'll get any races in before Lanzarote IM at the end of May. A nice light intro to the season.

How many IM do you do Richard?

Which sprint tri are you doing WW?

Do seasoned triathletes tend to go for the longer events or do they do a mixture?

Hi Hilly...
Got my first sprint either malvern or southwell towards the end of may (must check!), then a couple of olympics before the 1/2 IM uk in sherbourne.

Not sure if I'm a 'seasoned' triathlete yet, but I'd say folks do a mixture, depends on what they fancy...

Windsor Tri - 13th june - Olympic distance.

May do a smaller one beforehand but haven't really looked yet.

so far the first one is IM austria, but we were planning to find a suitable sprint to do after the raleigh chopper is relaunched

we being ironbloke, me, monique and somebody else whose name escapes me, possibly cougie or it might have been Will

well obviously their names dont escape me, i just cant remember who it was

you're welcome to come along hilly if you have access to a comedy bike and a dave bedford outfit for the run
17/02/2004 at 09:24
Andy - it was Cougie AND Will.



They might not remember, but it really really was.

And it would be churlish of them to pull out now, wouldn't it?

and you then jules

Well, this being Iceland, you get about 3 weeks notice of any race coming up, but I think I´ve got my first in July which is possibly 800m swim, 18k bike and 8k run. MrB is also entering, having seen how rubbish the bike times were on last year´s race.

17/02/2004 at 09:42

OK - I think I've decided that an IM is probably beyond me this year, but all being well, a sprint might be OK. And I'm on the lookout for a chopper.

not *that* kind of chopper !

17/02/2004 at 10:17
Tee hee...!!

what about ironbridge then Cougs..?
17/02/2004 at 10:20
Oh God they're off again!:o)

MUT-I'm sure you're more 'seasoned' than me!

AC-now that would be a scream, but I'm afraid I'm not experienced enough to ride a chopper!

I might do an olympic distance later in the summer, but not ready for a half IM and certainly not the full!
17/02/2004 at 10:21
Lizzie-maybe you and MrB will have a double win this year then!
