2013 Events

Now we are getting near the end of another year what events have people signed up/planning on signing up for in 2013? Not just Tri but any cycling, running, swimming or all 3

    Blaenavon Triathlon (Oly) - May

    Grafman (Half IM) - June

    Ironman UK - August

    Survival of the Fittest (Cardiff) - October

    And probably a few more here and there.  Depending on how August goes, might do another marathon later in the year. 



  • My intention (although I haven't actually entered yet) is to start the year with the Benfleet 15 in January.

    An idea has just popped into my head, maybe do one event a month through the year?  image

  • broke.those are soo similar to my plans.are you stalking me

  • but i'm doing a different June raceimage

  • Was the Cardiff half better this year?  I ran it last year and it was BORING, 5 miles along dual carriageway, so I didn't bother this year.

  • I'm not doing the cardiff half..........I'm stoping after Septemberimage

    I hated the cardiff half when i did it years ago and i haven't read anything in the years since that have made me want to go back and redo it

  • So far, I have planned in:

    April - Half Marathon
    May - 2 x Sprints + Half IM
    Jun - Derry Marathon
    July - IMCH
    Aug - Half Ireman
    Sept - Nothing as yet and maybe soley dedicated for training for Dublin Marathon
    Oct - Dublin Marathon

    If I manage to stay well and un-injured, my diary will fit in a couple more half marathons plus a standard tri and a few shorter road races. 

  • I have done Cardiff half for the last 4 years, this years course was the best yet IMO, but knowing Cardiff they will change it again for next year. The dual carrige way section has gone and it started at Cardiff castle and finished at City hall. I enjoyed this years course.

    Damn Seren your on to me, will have to change my June plan and do Enduroman instead of Bala. image
