OUTLAW '15 registration

Want to do this again but so tempted by Bolton, price apart.

Which wetsuit and Tri suit for Sprint and where from cheap.

I bought my wetsuit ex hire from Tri UK for ??50 last year. It was completely unmarked although I was a bit squeemish about the thought of somebody having warmed it up.
As for tri suit, Decathlons or Start Fitness. If you get a Start one, go a size or two up, theyey're a bit snug.
Lose three stone? Good luck. Oddly, given all the training, I put on half a stone from January to Outlaw, and a kg or two more in 3 weeks in Florida straight afterwards..

Outlaw or Ironman Bolton??

Didn't say they would but;

A) Everything has its price

B) Good point

Outlaw or Ironman Bolton??

I might be biased given that I'm from the right side of the Pennines, but Bolton, as a destination, doesn't do it for me. Illogical because Nottingham isn't exactly Bourton on the Water is it?

Would Outlaw become an M dot event or is it succesful enough in its own right?

online coaching is it worth it?

I think the police edited and released the footage.

OK, I think we get the message.......

Oh let's not have a doubles/triples, it'll be tubs/clincher, shimano/camapg before ypu know it.

Is iit being too ambitious to aim for half-ironman in the next 18months?

No you don't. My first Tri was Outlaw this year, there was somebody else on here in the same boat, Gh0st maybe. Go for it, train for it and you'll finish it, I promise.

I'll need to refer to the How bad were you... thread for comparison, but almost a year to the day before Outlaw I got my 1000m badge in the pool with my then 8 year old son, that was about 600m further than I'd gone before

I'm not sure of any requirements IM make for elevation changes, but I'd have gone further south towards Whittington in the first part and avoided the climb over Cannock Chase at the end, it seems a bit superfluous to me. Dead easy to sit here and say that, less so when you've road closures and 1500 athletes to consider.

Who said a course has to be flat? Hillier the better, for me! That isn't really very lumpy at all. 

It's not, but it would have been flatter still
