Anybody else seen this one? I don't know if it's meant to be called "The Hairy Arse", but most Welsh words appear to be no more than a nasal rendition of the English word.
It's a new half-distance in north wales with 1,100m of climbing and a sea swim. 21st July.
It looked like a good way to warm up for Tenby, so I've entered. Anyone else fancy giving it a crack?
Thanks Seren. I knew I'd got it right. Adds to my lexicon of Welsh/English translations;

Pedantry always welcomed, FB!
And from this day forth, is shall be known as The Hairy Arse.
Well guys, looks like I may be joining up for this.
Original plan was for the double Im in June, but have just lost my bike for at least the whole of Jan and can't afford to miss a full months biking at this stage, so looking around for something sligthly later in the year and being that there seems to have been a good response from the people that did it last year (apart from the weather) this event fits the bill.
Did it fill last year?
Is there anyay of seeing how many extrants so far this year?
Whats the limit?
It'll be lovely to see you there SA!Just booked my accom for the race weekend. Availability already looks sticky. Looking forward to being able to train again once I shake this 'orrible chest infection!
this is from he organisers
Last year the race sold out quickly so we are expecting to do the same this year.Currently we have about 200 places left, and do expect these to fill very soon so I would recommend that you enter ASAP to avoid disappointment
looks like its going to fill before I can enter.
SA... i wouldn't read too much into that - im pretty sure it didn't fill last year - one of Buddha's friends entered a couple of days before the race
my suspicion is that they're saying that to hurry people into entering before they're tempted to enter a different event
hope you get a turn in luck soon!
I strongly advise you to get hold of 8-iron, he has quite a story
I posted on the FB page to show my support for AW and keeping the event 'Welsh', but as I'm completely in the dark about IMUK and how they could potentially impact the event so I can't really join that debate.
It was awesome last year. AW were fantastic especially given the last minute changes due to the weather.
Massively dissapointing ... Gutted to have already paid my entry , and even more gutted that i convinced two friends to do the same . leaves a pretty sour taste when you hear that the people involved in last years event still in some cases have not been paid .
Sadly it looks like i'd only get 50% of the fee back if i cancelled now (although i have written for clarification of this given the situation with AW ) , so ... to take a hit, risk it being an ok event afterall, or try to move the entrys to a different event . Such a shame to have this cloud over proceedings .
Good advice FB as always.
I still may have to withdraw anyway depending on the result of my "consultation" at the sports clinic - still 54 days away. If I'd been privately insured, could have been evaluated in December already. So I won't know until March if there's any hope of me running again. Now I'm really getting antsy - if my running days are really over I need to cancel as soon as poss. Meanwhile I'm still swimming and cycling.
indeed FB... am hopeful that things resolve quickly , and with positive news re AW involvement . I really want the friends that i signed up to have the kind of experience we all had at last years. Good to see so much dialogue on here and on the antisocial networking sites .. hopefully it will help get the point accross ?
Training hard regardless as have outlaw to worry about first anyway . Aiming to not be in the bottom 5 of at least one event this year
