  • Interestingly that's the same date as Challenge Henley next year!
  • can't see anywhere how much it will be yet
  • Bizarre to pick the same day as Henley?





    (and the JW) !!
  • seren - you'll see the price when you enter.... image

    it was rumoured to be the same day as Henley despite the IM main site showing the 9th. I suspect the tides might have something to do with the choice of date as it would be difficult to do the swim when the tide's out!
  • TBH I think I'd prefer that option.....
  • If I enter FB it will be the week before..............I have a date with the double in june and hopefully have learned not to do too much in one yearimage
  • im keen to join the support / volunteer troops

    FB - did you get a response about the pirate transition help?

  • not yet - plenty of time to rattle 8iron's cage. it's not forgotten about
  • aye - im sure he's got other priorities at the present image
  • FB where did you get this date from? Not doubting you, just want to check before booking accommodation etc... ?

  • from their Facebook and Twitter feeds this morning - it's not showing the date on the website yet though although there is a "Race Entry open Sunday" link on their home page. the website usually takes a little while to update to what is happening in real time



  • And it no longer clashes with The Vit.  Hurrah!
  • I wonder if Challenge Henley will get more Pirate attendance this year. It was jolly good but I think only 3 of us from this forum made themselves known.
  • as most people seem to be doing Outlaw this year, I think the pirate numbers for Henley and Tenby might be thin but I'm sure that both will get a few entrants from those who want a different challenge or decide to do both
  • Fancy Wales as a bit of hilly fun, working on the idea that it probably won't sell out too quickly, will see how Outlaw goes first maybe...
  • symes - I think you may find it will sell quicker than this year as it now has a reputation as a tough fecker which could draw in those who want a challenge. I wouldn't be surprised if it sells out at some time - be interesting to see how quickly entries take off from Sunday...
  • Fair point, thought it might be good to try it before ExtravaLanza in 2013 as a comparison. Also eying up the Midnight man in Dartford although that does have tedium written all over it would be good to do an IM on closed roads in the UK
  • I'm signed up image . I read somewhere on one of the other IM pages that some sell out in hours so went online early and hammered the credit card. Couple of friends signed up to have a go next year as well. Watching the coverage today was great and If 2012 is even half as good I'll be happy
  • The chimes of impending doom clang in my ears.

    I've entered and I feel sick. Not because it's going to hurt, but because this is the first time in my life that i've committed to something in advance image. Much happier keeping my options open until the last second, like Outlaw last year.

    Ho hum - it's done now. And it'll keep the lard off my love-handles through the cold winter image.

  • I was a volunteer at this years IM Wales and was so inspired by all the competitors that in a moment of madness this morning I have entered 2012 will be looking for lots of advice over the coming months....
  • Well done Kelvyn, you won't regret it, I'll be there volunteering this year.
  • Great stuff Kelvyn ... Im certain you won't regret it. There is lots of good advice to be found on these forums. Latching on to the "pirates" was the best thing I did in terms of IM prep and is for sure what got me through Wales, enjoy your next 11 months training and see you in Tenby image
  • I am hoping to be there in some capacity (but defo not racing!)

  • What - no list, Schmunks? Perhaps it's a little too basic to merit a List Fairy's attention... so i'll kick it off;
