It is what it is!

Either you accept it when you enter the race or don't accept it and don't enter the race

Another vote for 113, great event, well organised and flat fast bike course


FFS Barlos!  Once again, you have forgotten to mention the absolutely wonderful feedstation that runs as smoothly as a Formula 1 pit stop!

May be because it paled in to relative anonymity after the show stopping performance at Outlaw

I haven't done the 113

+1 to what Duda says although it would help if you give us a little background as to your swim experience and also a little of your swim style if you are aware of it

Do you swim with 'windmill arms'?

You say you breathe every 2 or 3, but are you taking in enough air?

Are you exhaling underwater?

What's your body alignment like in the water?

Do your legs sink causing drag?

Check out Swimsmooth or Total Immersion for some valuable hints and tips

There won't be showers at the finish on Sunday as the finish line is right outside a pub in South Cerney

I have just text the Race Organiser to see if the showers at Lake 32 will be available post-race.  As soon as I know, I'll post on here

Sad news, but a timely reminder to always go out with some form of ID

There's no guarantee that Derbyshire Police would think about looking in your wallet. 

 

ID doesn't have to be in your wallet
