2013 Events



  • rafiki - thunder run ??   solo ???   its the only way image 

  • You're mad - what you'll do to get into the decent camp site!! And you might still beat our Pirate team of 5!! image

  • didnt realise there was 2 camp sites  - i'll have done the SDW100 by then so should know what im in for  - looking at around 100 mile as i did a 70 in 16 hours in torrential rain which was also a XC kind of course on 10 mile laps. shouldnt say too much - i might end up only doing 70 this time image


  • The soloists and doubles get to use the campsite adjacent to the start finish line so you have less distance to go to your tent and the food tents etc - where as us lesser mortals get stuck a good 400m away - such hardship!!

  • who is in the pirate team Raf?


  • Happychap is organising it - I think it will be Me, Happychap, Trogs, Little Sister (?) an An Other (as Toucs has had a crazy idea of doing the solo). You fancy entering a rival team? I know Cake was up for it image Plenty of beers and a good BBQ....oh and a little bit of running!

  • thinking about solo myself, don't think the double ironman will happen for me next year, so kicking around for ideas, a friend of mine did solo last year and took him a month to recover.

    fancied a team last year but nothing happened in the end, will get christmas out of the way and hopefully be making a decision about what I'm doing next year, but will have to be first half of the year and Mrs SA has the second half the year booked for IM Florida

    Did the Marmotte sportive in the Alps at the weekend - absolutely fantastic event - should be on the must do list in 2014for anyone that cycles - not as hard as anIronman I  imagine but pretty tough and great fun.
