Late long course in Europe?

What's the latest IM distance event in Europe?  Anything in late Oct/Nov?


  • September 8th is the latest offical IM (Wales) after that its challenge Barcelona on 6 October

    +1 with SA

    the problem with anything later than early October is day length and safety issues then present themselves.  not so bad with running on lighted streets etc but no way would you be allowed to swim or ride in the dark mornings.

    over late Autumn/Winter you need to head to the Southern Hemisphere to find LD races

    SA those two are too early I'm afraid.

    That's what I thought but you never know, some one might have come up with some odd ball event some where.  I need an event for 2015, IM has Arizona, Western Australia and Cozumel.  The first two, entries close very quickly none of them are cheap to get to or enter.

  • day length isnt a problem with midnight manimage dont know when it on though


  •   In late October I think.


    edit. Just checked. Early October.


    edited again, because I just noticed you wrote full distance. Meh.

    this gives 2 in the states in October.

    and one in October.


    sorry for being a feck wit

    Midnight Man is in July - starts at 6pm with the idea that you start and finish in daylight at least

    IM Florida is at the start of November but also suffers with selling out quickly and costly  - good event though - did it in 2007

    JB - if you want to do one of the far flung ones then why not look at combining it with a holiday?  that's what we did with Florida
