Changed the thread title from Staffs Full IM 2023"
A chinese whisper on IMUK Journey on FB is that Bolton 2022 will be last full distance IM, and will be a 70.3 thereafter, and Staffs will become a full instead.
Or is that b0ll0cks?
(i.e. Return of The Longest Day IM in some respects for us old-timers, well ok the sw1m venue at least)
So this autumn’s ‘one-off’ 70.3 at Bolton is a dry run. (Or another v. wet one )
Makes sense in many ways to have a flat UK MDot IM, tho personally I LOVE the hilly Bolton bike course, and now love the area full stop.
If so, I dunno if Staffs will also remain as a 70.3 as well, probably??
