The flights are early so you can get to the bar in time Rafi ...


Bungle, I was there in 2013, nice to see you aboard again !!

I think I said hello to you when we were hanging out bike bags up on the beach! Hoping for a more positive result next year!

IM Frankfurt accomodation

I stayed at the Lindner Main Plaza this year which is on the run course (the cobbly bit!) The room was massive, more like an aparment really with separate bedroom, it only had a walk in shower though not a bath. They did a really cool thing that if you said you didn't want your room made up you could have the mini bar for free and they restocked it every day. The Ritter Sport and peanuts were given a good bashing!

The price was reasonable especially if you get breakfast included and they put on an early one on race day. Hotel is located 15min walk from Expo and 10 min walk from bus stop where you go to T1.

I've also stayed at the Intercontinental and found the rooms to be small and overpriced. If you like pro spotting it's a good place to stay as its the official race hotel but I much preferred the Lindner and would stay there again.

I'm definitely a lurker to the forum but after 2 DNF's at Lanza I'm going back for one last go. I'm staying at the Ico's too and was at Club O in 2013 when the Pirates took over although I admired from afar and was too shy to go over (although Iron Pingu was very lovely to me after my DNF that year)

See you in May!

Comrades 2016

Posted: 28/01/2016 at 17:22

This is my first post on the ultra forum!! Comrades is a race on my to do list despite never doing an ultra before (I've run marathons albeit fairly slowly). Having read the thread my only concern would be travelling to SA. As a female I'd be travelling with another female friend and I'm worried whether we'd be safe? I know that companies such as Sports Tours International do packages but I'd rather arrange something independently but I'm nervous about the whole thing. Sorry if this is a bit of a bizarre question and its not my intention to offend anyone.

Also as a first timer is there any wisdom around doing an up or down run. I don't suppose any one is "easier" but in terms of logistics is one more preferable to another.

Sorry to hijack this years thread but I love reading the build up to this race!

Ironman Lanzarote 2015

I'm doing Lanza this year after a DNF in 2013.

Just got back from a week there. Did some cycling including some of the bits I didn't do in 2013. I'm staying at the Princess Ico apartments which are just across the road from Club Oceano and are owned by the same people.

Unfortunately due to how my shifts fall I'm going out the week before and staying Monday to Monday as I want to go to the awards dinner (not to pick one up, just have a beer and some grub!)

Blue Peter I follow you on Twitter and see you are doing the crazy Tour of Sufferlandria. Wait until you get to Blender and ISLAGIATT!!

I used Nirvana for my 1st Ironman in Austria in 2011. must admit didn't have great service from them and they are pricey. The main problem is that we flew sleazy jet to Slovenia and there was only one flight a day. As we took pushed back off the stand at Stansted we could see 10-20 bike boxes left on the Tarmac as there hadn't been room on the flight! Some people never got their bikes........not Nirvanas fault but was one if many things that went "wrong"

Hi Schmunks- can you just confirm you have my address now for my order. I did send it after your original e-mail, but I'm not on any of the lists on the thread.

I know you don't want to be hassled via email etc so have put my query here.
