Cheshire Triathlon

Who's up for this one then?

I would love to do it again, but I want to make sure that I'm not on my own before signing up.

  • I'd like to do this one again.
  • No way you'll be on your own Caz. X
  • Oh Yeah, deffo going to do this one again.  See you there Caz
  • I think i'll be there too! x
  • image I've been training someone up on the marafun front for a bit and after a few false starts they want to do Edinburgh marathon. Looks like I'm heading up north this weekend. Depending on trains I might stop off Saturday afternoon and abuse Calf through. image
  • Me will do it!

    I like the abuse from SA! image

  • I'm not camping though - you lot can't be trusted not to touch my bum....image
  • Might manage to make it to Nantwich this year,, Just to shout abuse you understand

    image Like I said I probably can't make it. you will be safe. image
  • You SHOULD make it  Cake! It won't be the same without you! Stop doing proper big running events and start having some piratey fun! image
  • I'm in no position to be entering anything that would be a huge financial committment due to the current work insecurity etc, but I think I can just about afford the entry for this.  image
  • well... I pay in kind for my accommodation... image

    image Mate might sandbag Edinburgh as well. But one of my best homie's. I'll drink you under the table at Liverpool instead if you want. image
  • Signed up to this.  This will be my first ever triathlon, its certainly marketed towards newbies. 

     I went to spectate last year and thought.  yeah.. i can do that....  just need to remember how to ride a bike now.image

  • I think i will be signing up for this one too, nice and early in the year and I only live in Chester,so only downthe road for me! image
  •  boing!!!!

     I've been looking all over for this and it was in events not tri.  I'll see if I can get it moved if Caz doesn't mind.

    So who's still up for this?

  • I was thinking about it today Soupy. Not booked it yet though. I don't want to be a Nigel no mates...image
  • Same here LB. image   But I'm going to enter and I plan on camping so we'd better get our act together.  I love this race and I've got a cr@p time to beat but I've not done much swimming or biking for the last 6 months.  Don't suppose it will make much difference though...............training is over rated isn't it? hehehe. 

  • I haven't the time to improve my swimming or my biking to be honest.

    I don't expect I'll need SA screaming at me to shift my fat arse this year on the run though as it's only 3 miles and I've put 200 in already...image

    But I hope he does anyway because it gives me the horn...image

  • If you do Soupy, I will.....image
  • I'll come along and cheer image

    (Curious to see what this tri lark is all about... )
  • *uses the secret call to alert the pirates to a potential new recruit* imageimage

  • <waits for vulchers to start circling>

    Oh Frodo - what have you said?? image  

  • No secret call needed, LB - I'm sure I've been outed already image

    I already cycle to work but I cannot swim for toffee, and I'm broke. So I am loitering until either of these problems resolve. I did try to teach myself front crawl over the last couple of days, and it went quite well image
  • Look forward to meeting you there Frodo.  Can you swim breast stroke?  You might be able to manage 500m by May if you mix up a bit of breast stroke with front crawl, or you might be able to do it all crawl if you are quick learner.  Its a very newbie friendly event with no pressure on finish time which is why I love it.  If you look at past results you will see that there are plenty of slow swimmers. 

    Edit - I did my first 2 tris all breast stroke and wasn't last at either of them. I wasn't the only one either and at Stratford one man walked bits of the swim.  Yes, walked the swim. 

  • I haven't ruled out entering - but I currently have the Sandstone Trail 33miler in the diary for the Saturday. I don't think attempting my first tri the day after would be wise image but, if that doesn't happen for any reason, I may come along to play properly. Should know for definite in the next couple of weeks image
  • Sounds sensible Frodo.    Good luck on the 33 miler - eek.
