Talkback: Ironman 70.3 Staffs 2015 – in pics
Copy of a post I've put on IM Staffs Facebook page..This was quite possibly one of the worst organised events I've ever taken part in. From the inability to use credit card machines in the shop, the embarrasing fiasco of the buses to the swim start (which we were told would be delayed and weren't), the dumping us in the middle of nowhere with nobody telling us where to go when we finally did get to the start, the lack of toilets at the swim start, the lack of buoys in the water, the appalling distribution of blue bags at the finish and the awful queue to get out of the car park. On the plus side the bike course was suitably challenging and the not so flat run was great. IM and Staffs council seriously need to rethink before doing this race in the future!
