Mrs Noel, check out events organised by "epic events" based near Wigan, always good, friendly and well organised events throughout the North West

whats the best way to join a club that is right for me?

Posted: 26/09/2013 at 11:28

Tri Preston, Tri Team Wigan or Craven Energy Tri Club (Skipton based).

Have you contacted any of these? I'm not a member, as I do my own thing, but I've had dealings with Tri team Wigan and Craven Energy relating to Junior stuff for my kids, and they've been very good.

Also check out stuff run by The Endurance Store.

Hope that helps

Hotel for IM Zurich

Posted: 19/09/2013 at 14:30

This year I stayed at Fischer Fritz campsite, which was great, I think it may have been same one as WildWill mentions above.

My parents stayed at Hotel Ascot, a bit pricey, but Zurich is very expensive , so not too bad for there and nice and central.

The buses and trams are great for getting around

If you were going to have a mincing Half IM as your A race...

I'm doing Lisbon next May as my A race. It's not in the school holidays, but it is on the Saturday of the first May bank holiday.

There's a HIM and an Olympic distance on the same day

And it's supposed fast and flat with closed roads

I was there, but not in pirate kit unfortunately, as it rubs my bingo wings on anything longer than a sprint, (I'm waiting for the ladies monaco list to fill up), so it could have been my family Agh-ing at you Engineer.

My kids are very enthusiastic mini-pirates

I said "Go Pirate" to somebody out on the run course, who just looked totally confused at me, as they probably thought I was some random German/Swiss type .

It was a very long hot day, but yey, did it!!!

Whats happened to the little pirate symbol by our names?

Sounds fab! especially the hot tubs

I'll check out that article, thanks.

We are going over on the ferry and camping in Zurich, so we will have the car. I might try to drive the bike route beforehand, just so that I know what to expect.

Or Mr plodder is taking his bike, and says he may ride one lap of the route, so he can give me some good feedback on the bike course.

The word "mountain" always sounds a bit scary, but in my very limited experience, I have found "mountains" on the bike in europe are longer but nowhere near as steep as the lancashire fells I usually train on!!

I'm really looking forward to it.

Sorry for hijacking Outlaw thread, as you were!!
