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.
Me will do it!
I like the abuse from SA!

I'm not camping though - you lot can't be trusted not to touch my bum....
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!
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.
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?
Same here LB. 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...
But I hope he does anyway because it gives me the horn...

Oh Frodo - what have you said??
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.
