I've said that before, it clashes with all the big European races and isn't in the school holidays. But right now it's just a feasability study. Maybe if popular opinion says they'd prefer August then they'll listen.
Listen up peeps, it's been rumoured that The Longest Day may well be back on the cards for 2009 for the very-very last time. Dodd says he doesn't want to end on the 13th event so is putting the feelers out to gauge the possibility of putting on an event mid July 2009 to clock the 14th running of The Longest Day (an Ironman distance triathlon, for those who don't know).
Have a chat about it, if you think you might be interested to either do the event or marshal then state your intentions.
