Dublin half is 9th August, when/if it goes well the plan is to do the full distance in 2016. /  If you look on this forum there are loads of routes to IM, mine was lots of sprints, one very poor standard then managed to complete the tough Wimbleball which is a 70.3, this gave me the confidence to go for the flat OUTLAW full distance which is cheap atmostpheric and a huge pirate event. Which ever route you chose there's bound to be someone in yellow and black nearby.   At least one other pirate is going to Dublin , and of course you cannot pick these races without considering the overall feel of the event , which may or may not include a pint of the good stuff........

am chatting to work people to try and get a relay team for the half , as long as I can swim. Would not be averse to the full distance swim as a relay . lots to think about but should be a fun day

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,
