    Rumour has it that the course may have been slightly shorter,would be interesting to hear from any Garmin/gps users,as to the distance their equipment shows.

    The westminster bike route was 38 km and the run 9.4km so its gonna be quick. Other than that, its a fast course anyway, especially through the limehouse link tunnel (had a Tron moment going through there on my own) and the run is flat with tons of support to make you speed up even more.

    My GPS came up well short.. due to the fact I couldn't lock onto the sats inside so had to wait until outside on the route.. then the tunnels... the run was also partly inside so I keep losing the signal..

    Need to rely less on Technologies me thnks!!

    Yes it's a fast course , but I think the guys who have said the course was a little short were right as one of our club members ran a 41 minute 10 k when he is normally around 50

    Think it's pretty poor for such a big event not to get their distances right , will give people the wrong idea on their pb's and also guide for future races

    I don't think the swim was any shorter ... didn't feel like it anyway - 35:20 for the 1500.

    Could anyone else taste diesel and boat fumes in the water.. bleugh .. rekon a swallowed about 3-4 mouthfuls. Not sure of the nutritional values ..

    To those who advised to wear the swim hat over the goggles .. i raise my powershake to you, definitely would have lost the goggles if I hadn't as i took a few hits and kicks.
