I stumbled across the website for the Windermere Triathlon, which will be happening in early July next year. It's what they call an Olympic Triathlon (only just learnt that yesterday) - 1500 meter swim in open water, 45 km cycling around the lake, and finishing off with a 10k run.
The organiser has confirmed that there is no cut-off time. He has promised himself that checkpoints will remain open until the last competitor is back, no matter how long it takes.
With my fitness (or lack of same), it's going to take a whole lot of training. But it's nearly a year out in the future, so there's plenty of time to train. So I'm going to sign up for it. Gives me something to spend those "cross training" days on
Anyone fancy doing it as well? It could be cool to have a virtual (or real) team...
