UK IM x 2

Ive just read that there will be 2 offical IM races in the UK in 2005 :-

Full at Sherbourn (sp???)
And a half (location to be decided)

Good news


  • That sounds interesting. where did you read that about?
  • Interesting Will - where on earth is Sherborne? Is it very hilly? Likely to be a lake swim I guess? Might be interested in coming over for it.
  • Sherbourne's in Dorset, IW - it's the location of HIMUK. Beautiful, with a castle and everything!

    click on 'course'
  • What !! ??
    Have I missed something? I have already entered Sherbourne, and I'm certain it's a Half IM. I would be delighted if it's full but I don't think it is. (Cost £130 by the way)
  • 2005, IB.
  • This month's 220 has all of the info.
    Apparently 2004 Sherbourne Hawaii qualifiers will qualify for Hawaii 2004.
    They are moving the Half IM to summer 2005, as Will says , location to be decided, and Sherbourne will host a Full IM in Aug 2005.
    Let's hope the half goes back to Llanberis!

  • Yeah, Llanberis was a great location.
  • Can't beat Longest Day from Wolverhampton.

    Having said that if the half goes to Llanberis I'd be tempted back to an M-dot run event.
    The bike is spectacular.

    (Sorry I'm on an Ironman downer!!!!!!!)
  • why?

    so theres only a £5 difference between LD (£135) and HIMUK (£130) next year?

  • Well then, Roth seems not so expensive at 195 Euros for the full distance. HIMUK sounds a lot for a half.
  • DazDaz ✭✭✭
    blimey that IS cheap.
    it is good if you like the razzamataz of the big/commercial events. which (for my sins) i do :O)

  • Me too Daz.

  • DazDaz ✭✭✭

    must admit, i cant find anything anywhere either

  • will read it...
    must be true :P
  • Thanks for asking JulieJoo. Better today..too tired to argue...early swim sesh.

    You will find the rumour in 220 magazine. They don't usually get it wrong. 2005 definitely 2*IM sanctioned events.

    Taste it, taste Longest Day and see which tastes nicest!
  • DazDaz ✭✭✭
    2 ims and LD.....too many possibilities and not enough money (or energy)

  • saw it in 220 this morning. Don't know where the money is going to come from though?
    Probably wont do TLD as well in 2005 in fact probably wont do the half either. May do Weymouth (much cheaper and a great race) if the timing is right.
  • DazDaz ✭✭✭
    if my body can cope with LD next year then i may do himuk and imuk in 2005, otherwise just himuk.....or stick to sprints

  • [pads in crossly, looking for ed_m]

    Ed - look what they've done to me. XFR Bear licked my fur and now it sticks up at the front like yours.

  • I can see longest day being hit big time if there is a Hald and a full IM in 2005.

    Still my first IM will be between IMUK and IM France.
  • its the fashion JJ... looks very sweet..
    and at least you have hair. unlike daz (see above)
  • DazDaz ✭✭✭
    its a go-faster hat ed, helps you go quicker in tri's. i reckon you should invest......

  • give it a carbon finish and i reckon you could market that daz....

    ....triathletes will buy anything
  • only if it's on ebay
  • Eddum! What have you done to yourself?

    I thought you were a toilet until I put my specs on...

    I miss your spotty top and your tin-tin.
  • Whats up ed, fed up with looking like me?
