Following on from the list of HIM and “Full Distance” events, and on the back of the comment that Ironman events are not necessarily ‘fun’ and conducive to keeping people involved in the sport long term, thought we should have a list of Fun Events.

Croyde has something similar:
JaRok2300 mentioned a race is Worcestershire with some extra biking (link?)
