I need a not too tough half ironman event for 2008

Hello All,

This is my first post as a new member of the forum so hope someone out there can help. This has been my first year of tri competition, beginning with 2 sprint distances then the Windsor Challenge distance and finally the Olympic distance at London in Aug. I wasn't partic fast at 2hrs 58 mins but I did feel great at the end and would now like to try a half iron man in 08. Can anyone suggest a reasonable half iron man for a first timer, nothing with loads of hills and cross country running, just a reasonably straight forward course that i would have some hope of finishing.

Look forward to your responses :-)

    Whatever you do, dont enter Wimbleball HiM if you want a gentle entry into this distance... I did it 2 years ago and then (alcohol fuelled) entered again this year forgetting the pain of last year. I've heard the Vitruvian is quite tough as well.

    hey beryl


    Swim is flat, bike is fast, run is pretty flat too....

    Cheers Andyday and Barny, glad that swim is flat in the Big Cow Event otherwise it might have been a bit tricky. Will look into it.
