Pirate Support at IMUK

Having done Bala as a Pirate yesterday and getting amazing support I was well impressed. So were my wife and some of our friends that came and watched. Is there a Pirate area/feed station at IMUK? They feel compelled to don the yellow and black themselves and support in Bolton……. I promise they are all very loud

  • Pirates and IMUK don't really mix for various reasons, there is a big Pirate presence at The Outlaw
  • Oh that's a shame. Can I still get them some t-shirts? The Outlaw is the week after isn't it?
  • Of course... Got to have the t shirts, just nothing really organised at IMUK



    I may well wander up to take the pi$$ out of Holgs
  • There's a few of us still in IMUK that's be in pirate kit, all support and push up the hills welcome

  • I will be in pirate kit at IMUK

    have we got a list of who is in 

  • There are a good few coming to support me. I'll get them to get the t-shirts and shout at anyone in the gear!
  • I raced IMUK in Pirate kit, it's just not as organised as other long distance races in the UK
  • Thanks Kit Fairy. I've posted that to them all. Hope they don't all go for the thongs
  • If they do, can you post photos ?
  • that would be brilliant pirate supporting though..... a full cast of thong wearing pirates, dancing to the the theme from captain pugwash as you rode by...... image

    lets be honest.... its all prep for an Ironman on my 100th birthday
  • Thongs...I thought they were eye patches!!! I'll be there wearing the black 'n' yellar

  • I'm hoping to get Dawn Wife a supporter's shirt, but women's shirts don't have change text option available - is there a workaround for this?

  • Keep looking, There are lots of different options, Some you can change the text others you can't.

    My OH's (The Luverly Suzie) is still there from before the Big Woody in 2007 ! and that was customised OK

  • I defo think there is something wrong as some of the designs that have been clearly customised do not give the 'change text' option when you look at the design in closer detail.

    i don't think it's my PC settings as others, the hoodie for example, I could customise.

    i have dropped Hollywood a line to see if there is something awry at the shop end

  • Cheers Dave - 'The Luverly Suzie' shirt isn't offering any option to change text at the moment either.

    Thanks Schmunks, be good to get it resolved.

  • DS - Yeah, that's what I mean about previously customised designs don't seem to be anymore, yet other designs still are



    Will let you know when I know. image
  • Good stuff, thanks. image

  • I have certain access rights to the shop.  Can I help?

    Ah, I hadn't checked that it was still customisable .....  Could I lend you my wife instead ?

  • Cheers Mouse, I'll have a chat with Mrs Dawn Shadow tonight and see what she wants, then message you if that's okay?

  • By all means.

    Like Schmunks said, I think there's something on the blink with the shop (and has been for a while) but I don't have sufficient rights/understanding to resolve it.  I can start afresh though so let me know later tonight.

  • Thanks Mouse, I'll do that.

    Cheers Dave, always good to have a plan 'B'. image

  • I think we should be supporting at IMUK if only on the bike course

    I could actually see some of them doing it! They are all keen on the fancy dress idea- and also the opportunity of spending the whole day getting on the beers whilst I toil away! If there were going to be a group supporting on the bike or run I am sure they'd join!

  • last year we managed 3 kona places at IMUK amongst the pirates.....

    no pressure for you lot this year image

    Well, if SA is going to be supporting on the bike course, perhaps he can kindly bring enough sticks along with him to ram in the spokes of the 157 age groupers that will inevitably be in front of me.....then I might just have a chance!

  • image Seems a fair enough request to me.

  • Any support from other pirates at Ironman UK will be much appreciated, I will be doing it but sadly Seren I doubt I will be contributing to any of those Kona Places!.
