Welcome to the fifth running of this popular event

Once again it is the first Bank Holiday Weekend in May

Saturday the 30th April and Sunday 1st May with Monday 2nd May being the Bank Holiday

1 Week before IM Mallorca 70.3
2 Weeks before IM Lanza (ideal start to tapir)
3 Weeks before Outlaw Half (make sure you are on track and a great chance to test your nutrition)
10 Weeks before IM UK
11 Weeks before Outlaw

Ages before IM Mallorca

We will once again be running the event on both the Saturday and Sunday

We will have hopefully have got over the problems with the pool on Saturday that we had this year as we are in discussions with certain parties

Its in Macclesfield, Cheshire

There are several hotels nearby and I'm hoping that once again the social side will be as good as the triathlon, camping is also available on a limited first come first served basis

Welcome aboard P Willie (you sound more like a rapper now.) It's about 1,2 mile pool swim, 56mile bike ride round Macclesfield and a half marathon plus lots of chips, beer and giggles. Do part or all or maybe just marshal but it's a great way of meeting other Pirates and having a laugh.

After Weymouth Sunday I swore that enough was enough with my knee & I was sick of having to finish races by walking so swore I was never entering anything long distance again, so find myself wondering a) why I bothered looking if there were still places and b) upon finding there are, why my finger is twitching!

Someone please smack me around the head - hard!


It's a great day out!
