That quick enough for you?


Perfect Wink

Shame I wasn't, faffed around in transition and took the run a bit too easy, still, happy with 105th and a cycle time of 01:04:25 = 24.3mph avg Very Happy

Put them all in a google doc if anyone wants to paste them out. Have separated the times for each discipline..

edit: see a few people couldn't count to 3 laps on the run Very Happy

Sprint was 5.67km according to my garmin. Oly run had an extra loop across the bridge which sprint didn't do to make it up to 10k

Obviously theyre going to ask for it otherwise you wont be insured while racing.


I'm running in a town centre and I'm cycling on an open road. Care to explain why I need to be insured? I'm not when training. If a competitor has an RTA during the event I'm reasonably sure that HR would say they can't be held accountable for the actions of someone outside the event. In fact it would probably be the car driver that would sue HR. It's not for the competitors benefit as such is it. Given the HIGH entry cost compared to other events, HR should IMHO include their own Insurance costs in that.


Also, reports from Windsor suggest the River isn't going that fast this morning. and the aforementioned debris wasn't visable either. Which is a ball ache as they said they would make a decision at 10am on the SATURDAY.

I like the course, I like the event. But they are doing very little to keep that goodwill flowing from competitors. Presumably because next year they know it will sell out just as quickly.


If you cause an accident on the open road, then the driver will sue you not Human Race. The insurance you are paying for is third party cover in case you cause loss/injury to someone outside the race. As you say, you are on an open road so are required to follow the rules of the road. Being in a race does not excuse you from this. This third party cover is provided by BTF membership or the purchase of a day licence. It is the participants responsibility to have cover, but race organisers need to ensure all participants are covered.

Thanks for the link. Are the personal run2 pace and speed measures back to front or something?

If my normal oly swim time is 27 mins would it be fair to add that to the total and subtract run 1 and then add 3mins for t1 (for wetsuit removal) or is the swim generally slower than a lake swim?

Did anyone GPS the cycle, be interesting in seeing the profile and what distance people got.

Please ignore all the extra bits and i started the watch at the first roundabout (forgot in T1, add an extra 100m), but this should give you what you are looking for:

Thanks, knew I was pretty fast but not that fast, a 40km bike ride makes much more sense and brings the avg down to 23.1mph

Managed 1hr 58 something to place 104th. Bike time was the 24th fastest but held back on the running, bruised heel Sad
