Ring O' Fire.  Best race ever (despite a DNF). 

Cotswold Challenge

The first day would be the current second day, so 31 miles.  The second day would be something similar again - the whole of the Cotswold Way from its start in Chipping Campden to the finish in Bath is 102 miles.  Not sure how the Stroud to Bath section rates in terms of scenery and hilliness though...

Well done Bear - I did the first day but finished with horrendous blisters on both heels and a horrible cough.  I was hoping for a miraculous recovery overnight but that never happened, so decided not to do the second day.  My feet are very grateful!  I've not done Pilgrims so can't compare, but I thought the first day was pretty tough, especially that long drag up to Belas Knap, and then the final push around Cleeve Common and down into Bishop's Cleeve which went on forever!

Lovely event though, and a beutiful route

With the transport issues perhaps they would be better off starting the event in Bishop's Cleeve (easy to get to Cheltenham station), overnighting at Stroud and then finishing the second day in Bath?

Just spotted that entries open on 1st February - it sold out pretty quickly last year.

What do you wear? (Ladies)

Definitely go for separates - makes the whole loo thing soooo much easier.  As far as price goes, have a browse on the internet.  There are heaps of places flogging tri gear, and lots of special offers.  And don't rule out ebay...

I'm out of this. Broken rib has hampered my  training so I've switched to the Big Woody instead.  Hope you all have a great time

Swimathon

Posted: 28/02/2012 at 20:58

8 weeks is loads of time, but you need to stop worrying and get yourself down to the pool!

Aim to get to the pool 3-4 times a week between now and the event, making one of those sessions a long swim, and building up the distance each week.  Have a look at the Swimathon website too - they've probably got training plans on there.

You say you've done the distance before so you KNOW that you can do it again

Good luck!
