where is it??? link????


  • husslerhussler Posts: 237
    Yep, Im doing it... Its at Dorney lake.


    It looks a good event, it is divided into Age Group waves so you only race against your fellow age group :) no one else.

    Also if you win your age group you get sponsorship from these guys.

    The sponsorship package is well worth having......

    I am already currently sponsored by these guys so I have to do the race, I receive clothing, money off vouchers, and best of all 24 bottles of FGS every month for free:)

    Oh yeh and one more thing, the race goodie bag looks good too:)

    Yep- I'm doing it as well. About 57 cyberwinters away from winning my age group though...

    i wont be doing that...its the weekend after my first ever Tri (liverpool) and i wont be ready for a sprint distance one yet...maybe anothe SS (or at least a short swim one) first before i do traditional sprint.

    looks good though so maybe next year

    hmmm am thinking about doing this one...haven't made up my mind yet as not sure whether 4 sprints in two months is too much? Nothing booked in after Blenheim (until Sept/Oct) so maybe I will decide after that...
  • yeah im doing that one signed up for it the night I came back from the eton super sprints after 'puncture gate' damn that flint
  • chapperschappers Posts: 97
    yep, on for this one too - it'll be my first tri ever [:D]
  • moonshinemoonshine Posts: 335
    yep I'll be there on a mission to claw back the 4mis 9 secs the other half beat me by in Cardiff - means serious bike and run training as not a chance in the swim, sure his mother met a dolphin[:D]

    All been well I shall be doing this one - got to double check that I have nothing going on that weekend, so speaking to the boss later to confirm.
  • GGBGGB Posts: 482
    Am now booked in for this :D better start upping the training again.

  • husslerhussler Posts: 237

    Looking forward to this one from what I gather its flat so should be a really quick one!

    Conehead, are there any places left on the rookie day south? I've decided last minute cramming may not be a bad idea ;-) (that and my injuries are finally clearing up so I'm feeling more up for the race)

    Conehead - Do It!

    OK - reckon I'm up for this one. Will sign up today when I've sorted out travel.

    Will have to get me a forum T-shirt in time!

  • BlurredgirlBlurredgirl Posts: 292
    Right - done that. See you all there!

  • BmanBman Posts: 442
    Sounds like a good one. I do like decent goodie bags. Think I'll sign up for it.

    Anyone got an idea whether there's stuff to entertain kids - bouncy castles and that type of thing?

    I'm dragging my wife and 2 young kids to a campsite in a field in Worcestershire for the Upton Tri two weeks later and I'm curious whether I have any surplus goodwill I can count upon from Mrs PC.

    All I can think of is the ice cream van, but beware, the mr whippy machine exploded in the face of the chap standing in the queue just in front of me a few weeks ago. Ice cream all over the show, but he did get an extra flake for his troubles. But it does seem like a nice place for family picnics on the grass between the run and bike. Loads of people seem to do it.

    Entered.....will be in 25-29 age group.

    Look forward to seeing you all there

    If its sponsored by goodness shakes, would it be wise to stand well clear of the podium?
  • tomtristomtris Posts: 135
    following on from coneheads post...... as so many of us forum-ers are competing in this, and Im sure some of us are bringing families with us, is it not possible for us all to meet up somehow?!

  • Looks like a fair few people in the 25-29 group. How fast do you think the winning time will be? not that i have a chance, but just curious. I am tempted to enter as well, will see what i feel like after ironman 70.3.
  • husslerhussler Posts: 237
    Im hoping to be there or there abouts for a top 5 AG finish and these will be my times approx......

    750m swim - 10:30-11 mins

    T1 - 60s max

    20km Bike approx 30 mins

    T2 - less than 30s

    5k run - 18-19 mins

    Total - anywhere around 60-65 mins I reckon.......

    Going off the mid week traithletes world sprint results on the same course the winner of race 1 did 62 something....

    their swim times seem a little slow too for the fast guys.... maybe my 750 time is a little ambitous lol.

    The winning time will be around 60-65mins though.

    out of interest what about other age groups? I'll be last regardless but just interested just how much difference I can put down to my declining years - a girl needs every excuse she can find[:D] and something to aim for
  • husslerhussler Posts: 237
    Its hard to predict times for each Age Group.....

    The fastest times sometimes come from people in 40-45 age group so you cant really predict winning times for your age group......

    I would go off your quickest sprint Tri, be it 400m or 750m swim, and aim for that as Its a fast flat race, adjust as necessary for the swim part.....

    It should be somewhere around that time.....

    I just happen to know what time it takes me to cycle approx 20km on a flat course after a swim.

    My swim time is based on my known 400m swim time in a wetsuit of 5 mins 20s and allowing for sighting, bun fight etc

    My run is pretty standard for me, I can go quicker but thats an average time for me to cover 5k.

    I'm female, 40-45 age group. Hoping to come in at around 1.30 or less, if I don't blow up in the water or on the run.

    See you all there!


  • moonshinemoonshine Posts: 335
    same age group Blurredgirl I'm hoping 1.45 as the swim will be my challenge see you there
  • BlurredgirlBlurredgirl Posts: 292
