    For sprint you should get away with BS.  For the Oly distance that would get a bit knackering.  For the Half... no way.
    Nam - there were a few who did BS for IMUK !! - I think sore shins may have been one of them.
  • I've signed up. Will give me some motivation to keep the swimming going.
  • IMIB Did a olly the other week and first open water ever done. From a novices point of view was a world of differance If you can get any practice in before even if its just to get used to a wet suit it will help.

    Which one have you signed up for? This is starting to look like fun. image

  • Cake, I've signed up for the sprint. Am ramping up the run training so won't have that much biking and swimming time but really fancy doing another tri.
  • Bit of cross training before a marafun always works if you want to try more swimming on rest days before berlin. Got very little experance with cross training bike wise so don't know if any good.

  • Think I'm going for the Olympic distance. Been getting in some open water practice with my club and have done a sprint race which was open water but have yet to do 1500m!!

    Am I right in thinking you can actually stand up in the lake if you get knackered?!

    Still got a couple more weekends of practice though so will hopefully be ok!

    Did Olympic distance bike and run at Horwich back in may but the swim was only 800m and was in the pool!

  • Mick you can happily float in your wetsuit if you need to take a beather. No idea how deep the lake is through.

    The lake is shallow and you will get disqualified IF you walk!!, there are a lot of freshwater mussels? in the lake and they are razor sharp and will shred your feet. They are one of the reasons why the water is so dark.
  • image Note to self don't walk.
  • Well, I'm in at long last - middle distance - but can't say I'm over enthused about it image 

    Anyone any idea how they count the laps on the swim, looks as though it could all get a bit confusing to me image

  • How many distances will be swimming at the same time?  Do you have the sprints doing their 500m at the same time as the HIM peeps doing their laps?  Could potentially get a biy raucous with people getting under each other's feet? image
  • The middle distance people get to go first, then 1 hour later everyone else gets to go

    I know they give you wrist bands for the run, but know about swim laps or bike laps

    Event details from2009

    I found it quite useful reading the instructions from the 2009 race, link above

    It's rare for me to use a hotel unless w**k when out and about I much prefer to go feral and ever camp or see what I can work out. Not just a money thing just get fed up with all the inn's. That's good to know cheers.
  • This years race info is out and they have changed the bike course quite a lot.

    Only 5 laps now and 58 miles, it was an out and back course its now a loop so should be as boring

    the half distance people get to wear yellow hats!!!!!!!!!!!

  • so far there are 199 for the big half

    could have a race on for finishing postions 196,197,198 and 199

  • Number 199 is mine I tell you! Mine hahahahahahaha! *stroke's big white cat*image
  • there few more signed up so its 208...

    i guess i'll be the 208th person finishing the swim providing i dont get lost on the swim course....

  • image Steve swimming is the only thing I'm still quite worried about so very much doubt it. Your quick on the bike anyway so don't worry about it. Starting to look a bit like a outlaw dress rehearsal?
