Good Half Ironman Event in UK


I'm looking to do a half ironman sometime before I do my full in Switzerland but haven' actually been able to find one (am I being stupid). Anyway if there is one that is known please share.

Thanks guys

    Bala is a nearly half IM event and is very good. First weekend in June I think. There's a thread on it here Harry.
  • maybe try(coin a punn) the tri mags or bta who will have an up to date list for next year;0)
  • HIMUK is 17th of June. I think.
  • Cheers guys, IM switzerland is 26th june, what's the reckoning to it being too close to that for recovery and such?

    Bala would be ok, especially if you treat it like a training session.
  • Ok Harry Johnston on board!!
  • Actually I had better check that all important exam timetable...
  • ach, exams. over-rated, imo.
  • weymouth middle disatnce was on 4th june this year, thats a good race for a first one/ warm up for the full distance, nice sea swim, undulating but not too hilly bike think it was about 53 miles not 56. and a flat run, also about a mile short at 12 i think. £60 entry. concept sport i think.
  • Yeah exams officially finish 8th June, which probably means I can do these events as my exams usually finish way before the end date, but as nothing is published yet I will have to wait a while to decide
