did the Quin in 2011 and Deca in 2012

also might be worthwhile looking through the "race reports" section

but quick synopsis...

Location - has onsite camping or rooms in the main house. Plus lodges.

Swim - small lake - 13 laps per IM. (not as tedious as it sounds)

T1 - 3/4 min walk / jog up the hill to T1

Bike - 10 laps of 11.7 miles. Undulating.. still a TT bike course

Run - 12 laps? of 1.1 mile - mainly trails.

Good organization / friendly bunch (on the whole!)

You didn't say to watch out for wild horses when on the bike route! Laughing

I'm looking at doing the continuous double at AT.

This thread reminds me I need to investigate properly

Perfect IM for me. I like the bike so much better than the run. Wink

Yes,yes, yes just add another 12 laps onto the run and you'll be reet!

I enjoyed it. I've never done a big event (thousands on start line). I think there was about 15 doing the single in 2012. There were still about 8 people doing day 10 of the deca and a few doing day 5 of the quin though. It is very low key really however, great support around the course. It is hard as you are on your own for long times on the bike. Never been to a big event but there must be loads of people around you during the bike section. It does become a mental battle.

The run is 24 loops of a 1.1 mile circuit of which about 1.2 miles of it are on rough terrain Wink No flat smooth tarmac surfaces except 100 metres around the turning circle! Run the bits you can, walk the step short climbs and have a natter along the way with others. What more could you want?

Entries have been down for a few years but I hope they keep it going. It's a long way from me but I hope to have a go at the double one year.

So I am almost certainly going to do the double, if my wife can get the time off work or one of the grandparents can have the boy...

The historic reports on this site are so inspiring it would be rude not to. I have read lots of these and picked up loads of useful info

Any tips on feeding and managing the general logistics of this event would be very handy. I am either going to be on my own or with wife and child who won't really be up for acting as a permanent support crew. Are there places to store food and kit without having to go to far off course?

Is it worth taking two bikes? I was thinking of taking my TT bike and a road bike an shifting between the two for comfort reasons occasionally during the bike leg. Also thinking the road bike would be better at night with lights on

You will be able to have all your stuff at the turning circle next to the run and bike courses. And most of us will have two bikes with all the spares we have and some very bright lights. If you are on Facebook then jump on the Enduroman Events group and you will get questions answered a little quicker and meet up with people who will be there this year.

AT is so crew fiendly and welcoming, once raced you will return year after year.

Plenty of flexibility and ways to store kit and access whether you are going solo or having your wife etc as crew.

I did the double with crew - race report below. Highly recomend crew, although pleanty have managed without. You'd be surprised how many folk will be there as proxy crew anyhow.

I tried the Triple in 2016 without crew. I did not finish - timed out; but this was more down to me. However I estimated that I could hace saved at least an hour with crew!

DO IT.

Not decided if I'm coming down this year, as I'm doing Lanza two weeks later but hope to see you there.

In the process of sorting out accommodation for me and my tribe.

Actual entry will have to wait another month
