Posted: 28/09/2016 at 19:48

since I'm still not able to swim and is looking more likely a permanent ban

my race calendar looks like this

VLM

Liverpool 5km (sat) marathon (sun)

Bolton (supporting)

outlaw relay (bike)

Challenge Regensberg (supporting)

Equinox solo 

and looking for a couple of ultras to keep me busy

great event! 3rd year racing there. I think it was £105 for solo this year, that includes free camping for 3 days. You get a finishers medal and a t shirt.

lots of food stalls at reasonable prices. nice course, not boring and if your lucky you get to hear Dolly Parton in the middle of the night. ( I thought I was hallucinating)

Pirate camp was great, naughty me used it for a place to drop in an abuse, as required)

There are cut offs for the swim (no negotiable if solo) and also for the bike... Check on OSB site. There has been a few people over the years missed the swim cutoff and also pulled from bike course.
Best suggestion, if in doubt, take an extra year to train and get speed/confidence up, then enter in 2018. You want to 'enjoy' the race, not spend it worrying

I cant get physio to commit to letting me lose in the near future to train 'properly' so I will be over to support!

Options for Kit

I'm not hearing very good reports on impsport kit. Consensus was, over priced, poor quality and ill fitting.
OH race inbox 'raceskin' this week and likes it
