The Beaver

Am thinking of doing this as well as Bala,

Anyone else done this one before? Or anyone else up for it?


  • just outside Nottingham Puss.......

    I have done the Little Beaver, I know a few have done the Middle

  • I've enteredimage

    I have a friend who lives close by...

  • I'm going to do the middle distance one. I also want one of the t-shirts you get that say 'i beat the beaver'!!!!!
  • Mr + Mrs Oxy did it in 2007, I did it in 08 (along with Little Miss Happy).  The swim is seriously murky (no viz at all going round the buoys) and its in a fishing lake.  Loong run across a field to get to T1, bike course has a couple of cheeky upflats, but I do note that they are changing the course for next year.  The run is all in the grounds of he castle so minimal traffic to worry about, its a sort of cloverleaf shape, the rise up to the castle will have you puffing a bit, that aside its scenic and fairly well shaded if it happens to be warm. 

    They offered the option of camping in the grounds, but the only facility is a cold water tap (and the portaloos in transition) so only really an option for the hardcore.

  • In Canada we have talking beavers:


  • Shiraz and I did both Beaver and Bala this year - the Beaver was actually harder and slower than Bala - the wind didn't help, the bike's a bit longer, and the run from swim to T1 is quite long with quite sharp straw!

    FamilyLindi invited all the pirates to stay in 2010!

    Any more tips on the course etc, bearing in mind I have th Vit to compare it to.
