First Half Ironman or ironman!!

Hi There .

I am fairly new to the sport and i have done a few sprint distance triathlons

I am never going to break any records for speed but i do like to push myself as far as i can.

I am thinking of doing a half or a full Ironman in 2009 (if they are not all booked up)

Has anyone got any suggestions of a relatively friendly intro into the ironman circuit as i would hate to get stuck with lots of professionals and come in hours behind

Many thanks for your help

Take care

    for your first half ironman distance race i'd recommend the big cow. based in milton keynes, it's a great race. big cow events always put on great events, it's run by a guy who's a triathlete himself (pretty good he is too, came 1st or second in his age group at the dambuster last year)
  • That's great thanks very much

    I will have a look

    ^ shamelessly plugs his book on this site....

    Heard Monaco 70.3 is a blinder of a circuit!
