Just wandering what other IM's people are doing/considering next year?
I know there's a few thinking of Embrun but what about Nice, Austria, Zurich, Roth, Norseman etc?
I would LOVE to do Norseman but so hard to get into, expensive etc.
I'd love to do Regensburg but not sure whats happening next year with job etc, have opted to do IM as part of the Deca in June.
If things change and/or settle down during the rest of this year then I'll see what else is available, as I'd love to do an IM somewhere in Europe or else good ol USofA next year
I have had some doubts AL as I have been looking at Canada.
I think I will wait and see
RC - you're not likely to get into Canada as you have to be at the race to sign up for next year. They used to have some international entries but I am not sure they still do that. Of course, you could also do a sub-9hour time and register as a pro
There are lots of non-m.dot IM distances races in Europe - there's a list on www.226.com - many of these do not fill up so quickly.
AL - why not do Embrunman if you want a tough IM. The bike is the toughest in IM, the run is hardish but not as hard as (the black T-shirt) version of the Norseman run. And you don't need your own support like you do in Norseman.
Thanks for that Meli!
Austria looks quite interesting - but you really have to have your finger on the button! Entries only open Monday 11pm though!
Good for you FB and you too AJH!
- what running races you gonna do AJH?
Embrun, Embrun, Embrun!
AJH - 10in10 - well done, think that is right up your street and you will do really well!!!
Embrun- mmm, read a race report that a female pro wrote about it - the bike is friggin hard!!!!!

You know what we need Andrew? A sticky!
There is as much chance of that as an 'official' pirate race being a tough one
