Hi. Sorry to hijack the thread, but if anyone has a place in the monster olympic of middle and now can't do it can they let the organisers know? I'm on the waiting list for an oly place and desperate to do this race. So much so that I'll do the middle distance if needs be!
Hi. I'm reviving a really old thread and apologies if there is a more recent one, but it looks like I could be doing this race this year. I've done Everest marathon, CCC and other adventure/ultra stuff in this country so not overly (hm, although I should be) worried about the training/running side of things. However, really interested in any views/info/tips on the trip itself and the organisers, and any do's and don'ts about it as looks like quite a few people who have posted on here have done this.
Great blog. You'll ace IMUK, especially with that speedy swim and keeping an eye on the bike time (you won't make that mistake again I can tell!!). If you can do some sportives then I've found them a good way of getting a decent long ride in and not feel like you are holding people up.
It's a lovely day now here in York. Fog took a while to lift, but don't think it was too thick. hope it's like this for you all tomorrow. I'm on the first water station (it's near my house), so will be shouting you all on.
