not ooop Norf but you wouldnt go far wrong with Bastion at Hever. nice swim, 3000m climb bike and a largely trail (and undulating) marathon with over 1000m of climb

Camping is free IIRC also

Eyup, I'm glad I did Wensleydale last year having seen that they've altered the course this year. Will still be good though and using TT bike would be a nice challenge (used TT for Helvellyn last year too and loved it).

Was there summat about Jurassicman being the last one possibly, this year? Always fancied that one, but tricky this year with house/farm renovating and a shoulder repair op next week...

Very tempted.

Just a bit worried about the cut-offs (when am I not!?)

Would be good to race with you tho Puffy

I have it on very good authority that cut-offs will be quite relaxed. I'll be slow anyway, and she can't pack up and leave without me... (well, I wouldn't put it past her)

A day in the lakes has really cut the bike down, only about 49 miles according to the website, quite liked that race and did the first two.

Always wanted to do it again so might be one to consider this year.

This is turning out really, really bizarrely.

Jurassicman was completely off due to being stoopid far away logistically and bang in the middle of the family holiday time. As it turns out with latest plans we'd get back from holidays on the Thursday, I need to babysit Friday evening but could drive down Saturday late morning, "race" Sunday and make my way back up again throughout the Monday to get in for work Tuesday. Stunningly, my wife is apparently ok with this idea so I am now planning in more detail and seeing whether this is actually possible... Shocked

curry, durhambiker - I'd be towards the back and "just" taking it as a challenging day out (that's "just" as in hanging on by gritted teeth).

durhambiker - I'm in York but I'd assume you'd want to have more than a direct in/out run to the south?

I'm actually in Manchester now, so wrong side of the country. I'd still be up for lift sharing however I'll likely be down earlier as I'll be helping to setup and probably be down for a few days after helping to pack up.

I'm viewing it the same way pretty much. It's just going to be a long, tough day out. Got no times in mind, just want to finish it. Got Lakesman in June for targeting a time, I just couldn't not do this race with it being a one-off.

I can't get time off for that, both before and after, so I'll just head down on my own. Or drag some unfortunate soul with me as supporter and driver. Smile
