Ironman?

Any suggestions for an Ironman OR iron-distance?  I would really like one early August (not sure I can make it to Louisville at the end of Aug)

 

And what do you think about doing an iron-distance, not the official "Ironman"?  (I'm not looking at qualifying for Hawaii)

 

Thanks for any suggestions!

    Try the Vineman. It's held in Sonoma, CA in the beginning of August. Personally, I really want to hear those words "_insert name here_, you are an Ironman"

    yep Vineman or maybe IMCanada

    IMC might be able to get in by earning a slot at some Half IM races like peterborough or buying a community/charity slot for around $1000

     

    did the half vineman in '01 and loved it great course and well organized.

     

    also check trifind.com for others





    goals for 2011:

    break 19minutes for 5k

    break 2:42 for olympic triathlon probably Anthracite olympic

    break 3:16 for marathon ( a long shot but it's fun putting yourself out there)

    Greetings,

     

    IMHO if you finish the distance under race conditions, you are an Ironman, whether the race organizer paid WTC or not!

    The distance is the distance - and it doesn't have to be sponsored by Ford.
