Thanks Einepyk, sounds ideal and hoping Sunday is similar.
Just found this thread after not being on the forum for a while. Looking forward to the race now despite not doing enough hill training. Thinking it will be a half mara followed by a long scenic walk. Group of 8 + supporters of us from Soton area going out to do the run (5 Sat, 3 Sun). Fly out Wed so get to see what the weather is like then.
Any idea why the Google & IPhone weather forecasts for Lauterbrunnen are so far off the mark. Interlaken shows a realistic 17c but Lauterbrunnen 0c & light snow which I cant believe.
I did the first version of it in 2010. Race report here; http://www.southamptonathleticclub.org.uk/road/results/2009-10/triathlon/copenhagen.htm
Sounds from the other reports that they have made a few changes & improvements but T1 bags are still a bit of an issue. A marquee is all that it would take to sort that out. No getting away from the fact that Copenhagen is an expensive city but we minimised hotel costs by staying in the Cabinn chain hotels. Think boat cabin rather than hotel room size though. Drive there and back was ok but not interesting and poor weather made it harder than it should have been. Would not have wanted to do it in one go.
I train with (co-lead) one of the Southampton AC training groups. Winter time we meet at the Bellemore Rd entrance to Southampton common on tuesday evenings and at the Southampton AC portakabin at the sports centre on thursdays, both at 7:00pm. Wide range of speeds in the group so sessions are usually interval based on Tues and hills on Thurs. Planned sessions here: http://www.southamptonathleticclub.org.uk/training/road_cal.htm .
Be careful what you wish for JD, I did the bike leg of the New Forest tri yesterday and had an extra couple of swerves to avoid some donkeys meandering across the course. Big part of the Race New Forest philosophy seems to be making sure you enjoy your day and race so I woudn't worry to much about cut off times.
