It's one of the few races that I'd say is worth that price - certainly more so than London.

I just need to make sure it doesn't clash with London to Brighton next year and I will enter (it didn't this year but has done previously).

I'm in, I know it's a lot of money but I'll only do a couple of events a year so overall I think it's worth it if it keeps me fit. It's not much more than a months gym membership.
But I don't want to get into that debate here, I just too excited, I've got into Windsor Smile

I'm doing the Oly.

After 3 years of forgetting to enter, finally got around to it.

Cheers,

Definately a 'must do' for anyone in the South - be aware that you have to visit the site both on the Saturday to register and on the Sunday to race which can be a pain.

Unfortunately my swimming isn't strong enough to justify an entry - maybe one day I'll have enough confidence in my swim to give it a real go.

Highly recommended though.

Would love to do it as I haven't done it since 1999 - waaayyy back.

But I won't pay that much for an Olympic no matter how good it is. I can't do loads of races and a few more pennies gets you into the Swashbuckler - it s a no brainer.

But if you want to do it i expect you'll have to enter before the end of the year to get in.

I quite fancy doing Windsor. Is there something unusually hard about the swim then?! I have seen you swim BW (and you can most def swim!) so just wondered what you meant by this?! Perhaps you meant, you will only do it when your swimming is faster so you can win your AG and you don't want to enter till then?!

Yeah Michelle - that's about it Smile

The swim is 900 metres against the current then 600 metres with it - normally a few minutes slower for mid-pack type swimmers than a lake swim.

What normally happens is the fast swimmers get out on the road quickly and can then use each other to pace a quick bike leg - notice I'm not mentioning drafting Wink

If you exit the swim 5 or 6 minutes after the 'fast' boys it's a hell of a gap to make up on the bike and run.

I'd definately recommend it to you though - as long as you can do the Swashbuckler as well - that must be your main priority - right?

The first 900m of the swim is against the current,so even though you get the benefit coming back, the swim is typically longer (in terms of time - say 10%) than a lake swim.
