IMCH 2009

For those of you what want to join me in the non Pirate race of IMCH.

 The online registration for the IRONMAN SWITZERLAND on July 12th 2009 will be available Monday, July 14th 2008.

I will be happy to book the Youth Hostel for those of you that want to stay there. See you all at Nice.

This years race filled up in 3 months, so you should have some time to enter, but not too much...



  • so, what WAS the result of the vote? Obviously it wasn't IMCH then.
  • It was just being discussed as we left so I'm not so sure but I'll be up for IMCH image
  • yup - if I'm not retired then ch is my destiny - Shiraz declared yesterday that she was definitely not doing IM ever... then told everyone to vote CH as she didn't want to do Lanza.... women, huh?
  • According to the Polling day Thread, it is LANZA, ROTH and IMUK!!!
  • Not true SB...if you look again, you'll see that he made it up.....I don't know what the result was tho'.....
  • I have just looked at that... and this is not the first of April either...

    I should just edit the first post and call it the Pirate championship and be done with it...

  • Sorry... just tapiring... I think the result became more and more CH the longer the Bala bike ride went on....

  • Oh well i have started the thread...

    If it is definately CH I will get a fax of the YH asap so we have lots of rooms, I can get about the whole hostel at the moment....

  • think the idea on saturday was whoever started a thread first then that was where it would be!!

    Get the title changed SB image

    I'll probably be doing both Lanza and CH, but if you ask me at mile 20 in Nice, I will give you another answer. But count me in SB.

    pebble - remind me - didn't you retire from IM after Florida??

  • Pebble 2Pebble 2 ✭✭✭
    I probably will again at mile 20 in Niceimage
  • how many family rooms in the hostel.....? image
  • I've already discussed the idea with Mrs Podro and she is keen on IMCH. She really liked Schweiz when we visited after IMA last year and wants to go back.
  • 16 double rooms en suite

    14 4 bed rooms with en suite

    37 4 bed rooms with washbasin shared showers

    9 5 bed rooms with washbasin shared showers.

  • I reckon wherever the 'championship' race goes this'll be the target for next season for me. Bobby you are a brave man taking on the booking two years running, but thank you, takes so much of the hassle out of entering a foreign event.

    although me and P didn't stay at the Zurich YH we did visit as quite a few pirates stayed there - it's a cracking modern building unlike many of the "olde worlde" ones in the UK and much more like a hotel. internet PC's and - what more do you need - a bar!

    if you want to camp there's a good campsite about a mile down from IM City - it's on the bike course and just past a turn point on the run so well placed. be warned though - arrive early to bag the best places as they will truly cram you in like sardines. good facilities all the same and on the lake so ideal for a quick pre and post race dip.......

    Its iron man switzerlandimage
    looks like it's official.........word from the camp fire!
  • woohooo switzerland it is then!


  • I think it was only Carl that was protesting over Lanza at the end of the night

    Lots seem to favour Switzerland a few interested in the new Barcelona one in October

    I shall enter IMCH if I have enough cash by July ......   or whenever it is likely to sell out !
  • Symes 2 years nice is already my second time organising the accom... i did it for Klaggers too!!! Well to a point then Lindi had to take over as i was going skiing at key points when you all had to pay...

    It will less of a problem this year as you will just have place money in one of my swiss bank accounts so i can pay the YH... might look at setting up PayPal too 

  • Woo  hoo - where's the list!! image

  • Oh bugger me, this has suddenly got very real! Ha ha.
  • If I do Lanza next year, then I will be out to support at this. But I may if I can stretch that far do this as well, Just don't tell MrsGOM!
