I'm toying with the idea of working through every single Middle Distance triathlon in the UK. The idea is to aim to do one each month through the triathlon season, so it could end up taken me a while to do. I managed to find a list on one of the triathlon websites but I'm not sure how accurate it was. Are there any that are missing, are some of them no longer taking place? Do you know of a definitive list that already exists? All help appreciated. Here's the list:

Did London a few years ago with a male friend and did have to suggest to him that we might want to pass one woman who was in front of us before we passed our families somewhere along the course. They might have wondered why we were running behind someone that was basically running in a skimpy pair of shorts and a bra.
Same race did see us passed by a woman as we headed along the Embankment, Neither of us were worried as she had shouted at us to get out of the way because she couldn't change direction to go around us. Did wonder if she made that turn at Big Ben or ended up crashing through the crowd and ended up heading towards South West England.
