I'm having an event 'crisis' and as a result looking for some ideas help; IM
Wales has been my training focus and physically I'll be ready. I love the event which is why I can't wait to be in Tenby again....
But.... work circumstances may dictate that I cannot get there in time or back in time. The race is now a very serious doubt. It's too late to transfer out of the event with IM and there are no other IM or Challenge Family events where the dates work for me in 2017!

So, IF I have to withdraw from Wales what other events are out there at this stage of 2017 that will allow me to utilise my fitness gains, my motivation for a tough day out and test me both physically and mentally? Any race ideas or links most gratefully received. If Wales is at all possible I will be there but currently that appears unlikely.

Thanks,

K

If it's Sunday that's tricky, the Saturday before Wales has a middle distance in Woburn:

Great replies so far.

I'd love Vichy but cost and the difficulty of getting there probably rule plot out. Other events highlighted here could be options if Wales doesn't make it...
