Pirate DIY Half IM 2015

OK

So after lots of pressure and requests about are we doing it again and dates for next year and requests to get the dates as early as possible, we now have dates

We will be running the Pirate DIY half IM again on both the 2nd and 3rd of May

The Monday 4th May is Bank holiday

The date has been chosen

1 week after VLM

1 week before IM Mallorca 70.3 (last chance to swim)

3 weeks before IM Lanza (perfect start to tapir)

4 weeks before Outlaw Half (Great chance to test out kit and nutrition)

8 weeks before IM Austria (Perfect timing)

11 weeks before IMUK (great to check how your training is going)

12 weeks before Outlaw (great to check how your training is going)

This time we are hoping to have lap counters for the swim and a master timer so we can provide split times

We will also be doing t-shirts again for those that want

and all this for £4 (the swimming pool entry cost)

As usual there should be a good social side so the pub should feature on Friday and Saturday night

  • I will be there in one guise or another.  I might run the bike route for a few hours if that's ok?  And will spend my time marshalling, milling about for the rest of it.

    Shouldn't you be concentrating on IM Lanza then? and I believe you have been challenged to a smack down on the DIY course by Stanners over on the Outlaw half thread

     

  • Do you have to be a pirate to do it?

    Nope its pretty much open to all

     

  • See you lot are tempting me again!!!
  • image its a great way to meet lots of pirates and also swap tips on all things tri and the best bit, its a great laugh

     

  • And there's chip butties!

    Put me down image

    Are there any vets about ...... image

  • Also bacon!!!!!!

  • Did someone say bacon? image

    I will use the subtle "I was thinking....." technique with Mrs BK32 and then just let it gather pace (it's worked for Cambridge Tri, Outlaw Half so far (we are both in for them)) and is all good for "I was thinking......" prior to Outlaw Full registration.

  • SA - which is the Premier Inn closest to you?

  • If you don't have to be a pirate...could you put me down to compete please? Even if it's just the bike part image
