I wasn't going to do any long distance racing next year but seeing as I grew up in Poole (and my parents still live there) AND I have relatives in Torquay it's going to be hard to resist!

Can't work out why sometimes it'll show elevations and sometimes won't??

Anyway link here http://connect.garmin.com/course/2262022#

This one may work as well or http://ridewithgps.com/trips/972348

I am no way connected to Brutal just a "Best guess" to a route following the coast and its 7 miles short of 112

Is there a tougher ironman run than this?

It looks like this will be on the same day as the Swanage Tri. I think I might do Swanage, go home have a shower, head back into Swanage, have fish and chips on the beach, maybe a couple of beers. And then watch the nutters come past !
Which may include my wife Rolling Eyes Very Happy

This could be a training race for the Enduroman Triple Distance in Sept!

This does look pretty special - might be tempted if I can get myself back swimming.

One thing that does concern me is the roads. Riding along the coast in the middle of the summer holidays on what might be a glorious summer holidays means that there might be tailbacks and then we will be trying to overtake cars on the outside. The inside could be even worse. Not a good recipe. I don't like doing that for five minutes on my (mainly quiet) commute to work, let alone seven hours.

That's a good point. I ride those roads in the summer and they do get ludicrously busy. I assume the organisers will take us on back routes, but even so you can get local traffic/tractors etc.

I'm also a bit concerned about running those cliffs in the pitch dark!

actually, doesn't bother me in the slightest. I cope well with traffic, and enjoy the cut n thrust.
Doing the (last part only hopefully) of the cliffs in the dark too ditto. They manage on the Oner ok. We'll be too tired to run too fast by then anyhoos. It's all good, embrace the challenges. It's "extreme" after all. Very Happy

More info released yesterday and the course has changed a bit.

Run is now the other way around so the hardest bit is at the end!

My aunt lives in Budleigh Salterton. Might have to have a word with Mrs KG and see if this is a goer.

Very tempting. I'm looking for an extreme long distance tri for next year.

My focus is on:

City to Summit (roads too busy?)
Celtman (need crew, but tempting)
Jurassicman (on my birthday)
Brutal (ditto crew but torment of double version jeopardy)

I am being pulled towards the Jurassicman, as I've done the run course and I'm happier that the bike is now on quiet roads (yeh??)

My concern is whether extreme is too much for me - a genuine back of field triathlete. Mental won't be a problem (aks my OH).

Weekend to contemplate Idea
