PSOF Championships 2018

So did I!!
I did enjoy Austria!
Wales, bike course would be hilly enough for me, run/walk course might be a bit too hilly for me! Plus time of year & probable weather not great for me, cold knees make for an unhappy Little Sister!!
Sweden, bike too flat, but probably wouldn't have an issue with the run course!
Cut offs in Mastricht & Barcelona might be a bit tight for me!
I'm tempted to go back to France, I have unfinished buisness (officially a DNF, but crossed line in under 17 hours but I want that sub 16 finish)! Got a bit of thinking to do!

I'm near Chesterfield, I was thinking if you were nearby you could try my Ribble to give you an idea of sizing!

I have to ask why you think Ribbles are out?? I'm only 5' 4" and I have an XS Ribble Sportive that I love! Admittedly I do have a slightly +ve ape index, but the geometry can be tweaked by changing stems etc!

Walking the run?

I was sure I'd seen something about use of crutches in IM, admitedly it might only refer to races held in the USA!

Worth having a look to see what the rules are if you have a limb impairment!

Walking the run?

My right knee is completely fubared, I can only run up to about 3 miles in one session. 10 k's to half marathons I run/walk as best I can and always adapt the plan to how it feels. Marathons I walk the entire way (although I've never done a stand alone marathon). I've also had to pull out of 2 IM distace events after my knee has gone on me.

As long as you are prepared for a long day, willing to adapt to how things feel and put up with well meaning people encouraging you to run when you know you either can't or don't need to then it is perfectly doable! My marathon PB is around 6:15, and IM PB (from a different race) is 15:59:11!

 

off road duathlon + 10k etc

It would appear that they may have changed the bike course, not sure how technical it will be! There's plenty of scope around Sherwood pines!
