Supporting at Outlaw 2013

Ian and his band of merry people have been good with us for the last few years since the 1st race.
Just wondering as most will be doing Henley as the champs race, or Lanza!
Are we still organising a posse for the feed station or just moving on?

  • I posted a reply on another thread yesterday, personally I would like to see the Pirate feedstation as an enduring aspect at Outlaw.  Its the biggest UK race and think it reflects well on us to give something back. 

    I also think that by giving something to others we reap the benefits in the support you get as a pirate, ive been to races all over and had complete strangers shouting for me, that counts for a lot and I think the support we give to others (including the feedstation at Outlaw) reaps this payback.  Its also good fun image

    Its early days yet but id imagine we'll need to canvass for support in the new year, I know a number of people have already said theyre keen to help.

    Next year id like to make it even bigger and better, akin to one of the Ironman feestations you get on the continent, ive a few ideas up my sleave image

  • Cool. Hopefully i'll be doing a relay next year, and it wouldn't be the same without lots of pirates aaaarrrgggggggghhhhhhhing us along image
  • Lee.....what's wrong with doing the whole thing....image

  • Don't be ridiculous!image na not for me next year, got other stuff i want to do, and can't fit it all in. Will defo go for full distance in the future though image
  • I also posted on this years Support Thread that we hope for The Pirate Feed Station to continue and although Barley and I are happy to organise it in the run up to the day, we would like to hand over responsibility of the day itself to others so that we may see Pirates and non-Pirates over the whole course as we have not so far been able to do so
  • Which bit are you going to do.

  • Was thinking the run, eek! Putting a team together with Colourin, hopefully. Defo wouldn't want to do the swim, as i'm sooooooo slow i'd worry about missing the cutoff, lol. You going for it Razor?
  • I think there are still going to be a number of pirates doing outlaw next year so the support station would be good..............

  • Yeah, I've got unfinished business with Outlaw, so that will be my A race next year.

     

  • Cool image Just don't fall off your bike this time!!image

    need a swimmer ? image

  • image sounds good Fraggle!
  • Can anyone remember the date for next year? Doesn't seem to be online yet, but i know they mentioned it at the race briefing....
  • 7 July 2013

  • Its in my diary already.  I had to much fun this year that I can't wait.  Might be up for a swim leg in the relay, or might spend the whole day on the support station.

  • I'm in!
  • is that to race or support mitten..............

    this is going to be my A race next year image

  • did my first ironman at Outlaw this year and the experience was made for me when in setting up my tent early on Friday I inadvertantly pitched in an area that would became irrisistable to the hoardes of arriving pirates over the next 36 hours! Many people came over to introduce themselves , chilli bean , seren mis, troggs , I could go on and on , and (after witnessing some ritual aound a very ornate box of chocolates!) we all went down  to registration on the Saturday morning.

    Being a pirate would be great....

     

  • Ian .... not sure about that as you did stnad and laugh at 5 of us trying to sett up Mr Z's tent!! image

    If you're racing........who are people going to throw bottles at ........?? image

  • Ian....brilliant .you need to think of a forum name to change to.....image

    then just buy some kit and join in the banter.........what races are you planning on next year

  • I was racing two years ago when Outlaw wasn't an official sailing and the support from the Pirate station was phenomenal. I'll be more than happy to go and help give something back next year, and I'm sure there will be some guys doing the race, too. image

  • I tried to help early on in the debacle , but after a while it  was obvious that some instructions would have helped, and when the solution became apparent it was  a beautiful thing !

  • I don't think instructions are the Pirate way.....unless its 'Last orders at the Bar!!'

    How did you race go anyway, you looked in good form when I saw you at the feedstation!!

    Fancy Lanza next year.....??

  • the tent erection only looked a mess as there was no woman in charge of the jobimage

    rafi........i am sure i could accurately aim a bottle or two at you headimage

  • Seren ,  I remember you , and your hat!   I read through a lot of the post outlaw stuff and laughed out loud for ages at the '' swim bike ambulance'  T-shirt competition. Other than that , I ran on the day in a Raven shirt named after Robert 'the Raven' Kraft who has run  8 miles a day every day for the last 37 years on South Beach Miami and who was a inspiration to me, he also swims about a quarter of a mile at the end of every run between the life guard towers.

    Races , I would like to do Outlaw again and the Newby Hall half distance in Sept, and the 999 sprint tri at Holme pierre point again , and  of couse the Leeds Tri and the Leeds xpress tri, and maybe some othes...
