  • I believe that it is shortly after this years event, I don't think it sells out to quickly but someone else will be able to better say, my question would be will it be in Bolton again next year?

  • No date confirmed yet! Past 4 years have been Bolton, but to be honest I don't care as long as dates remain consistent... I've got a wedding to attend just weeks before...
  • They should do it in Norwich. Two laps of Whittlingham Broad. Cycle a slightly extended Norwich 100 route round the coast & have T2 at the showground. Then do two laps of the Norwich half marathon route.



    Job done.
  • And you wouldn't have to travel/get up at stupid o'clock, I'm guessing? image

  • image

    Maybe i'll put it to the Tri club, start a Norfolk Ironman.

  • The men from Norfolk have been called many a thing, but I doubt Iron?? image

  • IronTractorMan bit of a mouth full but it worksimage
  • fyi - there's a pirate called Iron Tractor Boy.....

  • Well as long as he doesn't grow into a Man then IronTractorMan okimage
  • Chrissie Wellington grew up in Norfolk. She's done ok, lol.





    Maybe she could be a patron for the Norfolk Ironman

  • As soon as we know the dates we'll decide - IMUK or Outlaw.

    There's already an IronNurse image

  • And you can count on me to come and laugh at you at whatever venue you chose image

  • Well, the sight of a 6'3", 20 stone, bearded bloke in a tri suit will certainly be amusing.

  • May I vote for an inaugural IronJock?

    Mid July

    Freezing cold

    Pouring rain

    Swim in the Firth of Forth (which would be easy, because you could just glide across the crust of jobbies and used condoms)

    112 mile uphill bike

    26.2 mile run at an astonishing pace (which will be essential to outrun the midges)

    Feed stations handing out deep-fried Mars bars and Buckfast

    Anyone?

  • Gastank - I see you've enter Shas for this as well. Have you told her, or will I be getting the blame for that one too image

    And Nurse, you may have to work on your sales pitch a little image

    Raf gets a mention (it's not all positive though, but I know he's got a GSOH)
  • Hey, is it my fault you actually listen to what I say??? Afterall, you've met me!! image

    Is there a race tracker for Edinburgh so we can keep an eye on you from the comfort of the Lounge Bar??

  • GL on Sunday Gas.

    Talking about how much you swet in this ridiculous heat, when I used to run in work at lunch times, I used to get back after the run, wait 15 minutes to cool down, have a cold shower,  and carry on sweating for another 2 hours, then have some chilli con carnie, I tell you something, saunas are a sweat free zone compared to going for a run then eaiting chilli!

  • RAF not sure, I will have run keeper tracking me though

    My race number is 8848
  • Good luck in the marathon Gas.



    Dont forget suncream.

    Something that hadnt crossed my mind about sundays century ride untill i saw it mentioned on another forum
  • And a running hat.

  • Awrabest for Edinburgh, gastank. There's always a wee breeze in the capital. Trust me, I'm a nurse.
