Did the race in 2020
Chose this as my first long distance event for a number of reasons; 1 hour away, internet reviews, 220 mag reviews, personal reviews from Oldbury STC club members. The right decision! Great course that you can practice fully in advance. Swim is better than it looks, cycle is a great mixture of quiet country lanes, quiet long main roads and a short busy dual carriageway. Vic the organiser is very helpful and friendly. The bike motivators on the run course spent a little time with all motivating us. The girls at the feed stations were totally inspirational and fun (especially the 3 outside venue. Almost all competitors on 6 lap run were encouraging each other as were the marshals and supporter. Not the huge razzmatazz and atmosphere of Ironman Wales but perfect in so many other ways. Strongly recommend!
