They set a new world record on the course almost every year. If the weather is right, you won't get much faster.
Note to self....
Nearly 30,000 entries in, in a matter of 2/3 weeks. This event must be good. Anyone planning on doing it should register asap
Myself and Pre in and hotel booked
What's capacity 45,000? Hoping to book later in the week.
Over 200 irish registered i heard. Be some after party
Just registered because the rest of you pressured me into it!
For those of you who are interested, there are less than 1000 spaces left for this according to their Facebook page.
Just booked flights for this one.
Aer Lingus are having a Summer sale at the minute - you have to book by tomorrow, 9th of March.
Saved €25 which will cover some of the post-race beers
Good reminder, must sort flights out
Thanks for the heads up, I have the hotel sorted and will do the flights tomorrow.
Funny thing is I never feel like a beer the evening after the race, wish I did. I must not be properly Irish.
If there are a number of people going over for this, is there normally some kind of get together organised?
I never feel like a beer afterwards either but I'll hope to be up for a few that evening. 3 of us racing/travelling so name the location and we will be there
Closer to the time the on-line discussions will move away from the less important race-realted topics such as gel strategies, near-fatal niggles and taper fever to more important topics such as post-race beers.
IIRC, there was a pub nominated last year to suit most people location wise and I presume the same will happen this year.
