2019 Pirate Championship - IM Lanzarote

The annals of history will record that 2019 was finally the year that IM Lanza was selected as the championship race. 
After being mentioned in hushed circles for many years, the legendary race finally hosts the premier Pirate event.
Yes, lots of pirates have been there before with many fond memories including the eXtravaLanza trip, but this will be first time that it plays host the triathlons biggest one day race (beating a small race in Kona into second place)

When: Likely to be 25th May 2019
 
With a relaxing two lap sea swim to start, followed by a undulating ride through the varied, lunar style landscape with panoramic views from the top of the Haria and Rio, it finishes with a stroll along the sea front, with views of the many bars, restaurants and shops of Puerta Del Carmen and Arrecife.

With plenty for the family and sherpas to do they could take in a small beer at Ruta66 and enjoy the small train as it makes one of its many laps of the bar.

You won't want to miss the sunday night as the Annual pirate awards are handed out and the eagerly awaited "mince off" is probably won by M&M.

So who's in

  • Planning to do the Enduroman Double which will be the fortnight before, what could possibly go wrong? Worst case I DNF and have to drink beer.

  • Flat FootedFlat Footed ✭✭✭
    what are you on about Meldy? I don’t think they are going to move the race to the 18th even for you.
  • I'm not adding myself to a list yet.  But it's looking likely....

  • 25 is better for me as wont need to worry about what date my last finals exam is.I'm in...  

    Supporting that is  :)

    MallowPuff.You need to get about 100 times fitter if you think you are going to do this 2 weeks after the double  :) :) :)...or some denim shorts  :0
  • It's looking like it's just gonna be Lanza for me. Save the Double for the year after and enjoy the Pirate party properly

    Despite official statements from the Police, the rumours of my death were premature. Slightly.

    I'm getting tempted to emerge from my coffin.

    Negotiations ongoing with the ones still awating my life assurance payout.

  • 9Iron9Iron ✭✭✭
    Not done this on e since Saturday, so could be tempted
  • I've counted at least 20 people racing this now ... who else can we drag out of retirement??!

  • I'm tempted to try and track down some real old hands like Ajpar and Aliaird!
    lets be honest.... its all prep for an Ironman on my 100th birthday
  • Flat FootedFlat Footed ✭✭✭
    Who was Ajpar?
    ive tried Gladys and he is a no.
    Slags thinking about it.
    Oxy didn’t reply.
