So, someone has a nice confirmation e-mail so the die is cast!  Got Thames Trot booked in for 4 Feb as well and will find somewhere else that is a qualifier just to cover the bases.  Where are people thinking of staying?

Hey FT, they are really good events mate.  One of the courses, I think it is Iceman has a slightly more technical bike course than the other but they are both fairly straight forward, well organized and easy to get to.  Out of interest how did you find Xterra aside from the technical bike course, was it a good event as I am on the look out for something different.  Get them booked they are a good day out...

Hey, annoyingly I booked a holiday and fly out the day of the race so am doing Thames Trot instead.  Good luck all, the only advice from doing this a few years back was a second pair of trainers to switch at half way point from XC shoes to road runners for the canal path.  Oh and maybe some form of route recce for the first half as it got a little like an orienteering event for a couple of us!!!!

Lowrez that is really cool to see it all lined out like that mate.  Would push for Abingdon to meet people and qualify early but just coming back from meningitis and no chance of being fit in time.  Should be fit for the early 17 races though, just looking at starting to run again at the end of next week!

Help on picking the right Ironman

Just a thought, Copenhagen...  

I know its not necessarily the closest of Germany races, but it is an easy couple of hours on the autobahn up to Copenhagen and if you are over that way anyway is an ideal first full distance race if you are going to whole hog and going branded for the first one.

The swim is very sheltered, its a sea swim but in a lagoon and water quality was good when we did it.  It is almost guaranteed to be a wetsuit swim as well due to latitude and time of year.

The ride is flat and fast, well supported and the roads are good quality throughout less a section of cobbles that lasts about 200m or 2 life times depending on your bike skill.  There is also a personal bag at the mid point which is a good part of the plan.

The run is four loops out of town and back and the crowd was 4 deep in many places with a real carnival atmosphere.  It is also flat except for two bridges that add a little to the mix.

It is a split transition, but their admin was squared and they made it work.  Accommodation is easy in Copenhagen and the whole race stood out as one of the best I have done.  

Food for thought.
