Oh dear.  Not done anywhere near as many long training runs as I would have liked.  Oh well, it's gonna hurt that's for sure.  Just hope I get to the top of Leith Hill before the cut off time.  Good luck everyone.  See you on the start line.

Thanks Paperman.  I tried staying on the edge and at the back on a training day.  It was a nightmare.  I was swimming over and whacking people and ditto with people swimming over me/whacking me.  Mind you it was a training day and we were all new to triathlon, so hopefully it might be better in an actual event.  Ha ha - who am I kidding.  Will be far more competitve / aggressive.  Not sure why I'm laughing about it as I'm bricking it.  Will try to keep at the side though.

Great.  Was a few years ago, but I did MM in 2:50!!!  Have improved slightly since I did it a few years ago.  Guess I won't be hanging around then!

Oh well, that's done.  I'm in.   Now just got to worry for 3 months.

You've convinced me.  I do a little trail running but my road marathon time is 4:25, so hoping to complete this in 5 hours then.  Might enter the Pilgrim too as a warm up in September (ha ha ha).

Thanks for this Tony - so as an average runner, what would you say your average pace is on an undulating road route?  Think I'll bite the bullet and enter this, but just want to make sure I don't make a fool of myself.  Doesn't take much to knock my fragile confidence

I've taken the plunge and have my first real triathlon next weekend.  I'm seriously nervous about the lake swim.  So many people swimming over each other, hitting each other.  I know people don't do it on purpose, but I'm bad enough in the lake on my own.  Still if I can complete this bit then I can enjoy the rest and hopefully the more I enter the more confident I'll become.  Don't think I'll ever feel at ease in open water, but can't be any worse than your first one surely?

Thanks Happychap.  So, so tempted.  Like a challenge but that cut off time worries me ...........

I too would like to know if there is a course profile.  6.5 undulating miles in 1:13 should be OK, but if it's seriously hilly at the start then that would be my deciding factor.
