interesting, run too long I feel, will check it out.....  like the look of the half, and the whole concept feels long overdue ( I can swim )

excellent news!  36 weeks to go , just got to shake off this cold and we are good to attempt so ''serious'' training.

My wife has family in Dublin but we will be bringing the dog so will get a hotel, I thought at the start would be good as the traffic can be bad ( like anywhere , don't get me started about wimbleball ).

This is going to be my year, well we can always hope, at least if the eagles win the superbowl I will be more than happy

just checked the charity package which gets bike racking next to the pros, some kit , food etc etc is $2500 USD!  my lakeland 50 was 100 pounds,  but there is a ''basic'' package with international Rotary of 1000 euro , still a lot of money, same package for wimbleball is only 800 euro...................................

thehylander, that's terrible, I suppose big organisations mess up .  I missed out on the lakeland 50 when it sold out in 18 minutes this year but mangaged to get a charity place. I know that it may well be quite expensive, but is this a possibility for you , or might they have a reserve list that you could make sure they put you on ?  Failing all that almost every race on the planet is cheaper than this one , buy yourself a gallon of beer and get into another awesome race.

the info came in an general looking email from ironman europe which I nearly deleted.

you are right mansell, I now can't find it either, though it' s not much help to say it was there yesterday . Good luck with the entries  everyone!!

Entries open in 2 days time,  1000am Mon 24th for those who have pre registered and interest.

I believe that you can still preregister,  and then there is still a fighting chance of getting into this new middle distance event with a sea swim!

Am attempting to make this my A race next year , taking a step down from the increasingly tough full distance whilst I get better prepared,

wonder how long they can leave this before people choose other options?  Ironman uk 70.3 has places left ......

Cotswold 226 12th july 2015

I put a review up from a perspective of coming 2nd last,   still enjoyed it , Outlaw is more beginner friendly but only because it is fractionally flatter and because there are ten time the number of entrants making it easier to suffer. You will love it , very friendly people

Camlo the campsite before and after is the way to go, but only because it was a bit close to midnight when I finished , and I had problems walking , and in a week or two I should have recovered..    Great race , unfortunate preparation on my part!   good luck it is fun, I particularly like the guy ringing the'' last lap'' bell as started the second 56 miles.  campsite is good.

sorry Vince my runner has something better to do apparently and the other possibly runner is injured again, my hoped for relay is no more. .  However have a great day with all those entrants and hopefully I can be more organised next year, or be back to running ( well shuffling, never was a runner ) and just do it all and not have to rely on people.
