Have to agree it was well run and marshalled. The swim was def over 1500m though. I was about 3 min slower than last time but I'm swimming better than then ? Was pleased with my time overall though as it was slightly quicker. But PLENTY of room for improvement !

Bring on next year and pray for big surf.......

Thinking of throwing my hat in the ring again if I can get clearance. This year's event is 3rd Sept. Last did it in 2013 and the swim was a shock to the system after a 16 year hiatus!

Defo one of the tougher short races, you feel knackered when you come out of the swim on a rough year; the bike is normally v.windy and then there's the run up & over the cliff Twisted Evil I will most likely leave my 808 front wheel in the car if I do it again.

Done it in 2015 and was a great event.
swim was tough and run was proper hard up the sand dunes.

This would be my 6th outing there. First 4 times were in the 90s when the run just stayed on the beach, but I guess like car horsepower these days, they feel they need to up the ante!

Finally, a swim that would suit me. A week before IM Wales and another weekend away might not be the best plan though. Wink
