I've not entered yet. Have all you guys entered?

Does it fill up quickly or will I have a bit of time before I need to pay and enter.

Is the cut-off in Lanza 16 or 17 hours? I can;t seem to find any information on the website and I think I might need the full 17 hours especially if it's really windy!!!

Cut-off is 17 hours.

If it's a particularly windy year then they sometimes extend the 10:30 bike cut-off.

Really?

If it's a particularly windy day they might need to double it for me.

I was out there 4 weeks ago for two weeks. The winds were in the mid 20's every day with one day being 41mph. I struggled to get up Fire mountain into a headwind most days!

We also had a massive sand storm one day. Typically it was the day I was out walking without my sunglasses or baseball cap.

I'm not sure I should be even considering this again ! Did it this year for the 3rd time. They have changed the run route. To one long 20 mile loop and then a 6 mile one to the finish. I know it's the same distance in the end. But I felt it mind numbing running 10 miles out an d 10 miles back. And that wind .... well you all know that anyway!!!
But it's still the best race in my opinion! If you like a challenge !

Interesting...Personally, I thought the new run route was much better than going back and forth along he same stretch repeatedly. It meant when you got back to the turnaround point you just had one shorter loop to do...Agree about it being the best race though Very Happy

Yeah, I'm looking forward to the new format run. The last time I did it (2015), it was the 21/10.5/10.5 format, which I thought worked quite well, but the short lap always felt really congested and not pleasant to run. Hopefully the bigger loop will mean more space.

There was definitely more space on the run. So that must be good news.

They still haven't sorted the road surface at Nazaret that's the bad news!

If you have time to stop, you can get all the spares you would ever need for your triathlon adventures 🙊

That road is a Feature of the race!

It is funny all the first time @ LANZA racers being shaken to bits Twisted Evil

Its great looking at all the bits of bike spread all over the road Wink

apparently a lot more of the islands roads had similar sections like that in the early days

I wish they would, it's just down the road from my house and isn't fun to drive, let alone cycle.

They did divert around that stretch of road one year (2010?) by making us continue up the hill into Teguise. There was a bit more climbing, but the fast descent made up for it. It would have been great if they'd driven on the left hand side there, but it meant that you were turning left across the folks who were still heading to Haria at the top of the hill and people turning left at the Famara roundabout towards Teguise were crossing the path of the people flying down the hill from Teguise.

I did a 60min swim/6hr bike that year and there was a steady stream of people still heading outwards through Teguise when I was on my way back, so they probably reverted to the old course for safety reasons.
