Half IM or Middle Distance 2010 for first timer?

Any suggestions for a good first timer race and introduction to long distance?

    UK HIM is tough on the bike and run but it is do-able as a first time middle distance - at the race brief this year about 60% of all competitors were first timers to the course and about half of those were first time middle distance

    Alternatively I have heard good things about the Marazion Middle distance in Cornwall

    No need for a branded IM 70.3, just looking for the distance as my A race next year to see if I have what it takes to do an IM distance the year after. And no duck s**t please ....

    Big Cow sounds interestind, but would also like to do Windsor OD and maybe London again.

    Do Wimbleball with out a doubt, I did it as my first, the boast of having done the hardest 70.3 in the world as my first was just irresistible
