Windermere ironman! - NEW

So, no Bolton full IM distance in 2024, nor any LakesMan full distance ! :cry: :cry:

Two of the biggest UK IMs GONE! !:open_mouth:

But fear not ye UK ironman lovers, plans are afoot for a new big friendly ironman distance race at Windermere! !:star_struck:

(plus a Half IM (70.3) and an olympic distance too !

Flattish run but with that superb Lake District setting the bike is likely to be somewhere between Lakesman and Tenby in the amount of climb. So, it’ll be rewarding, scenic, but very do-able!

But what to call it - any suggestions?

Does ‘WinderMan’ as a name sound daft ! :sweat_smile: or does it grab you ? :sunglasses:

tho it’ll probably will just be “Windermere Long Distance Triathlon” tbh, but canvassing for a better name, as it’s fun.

WinderMan & WinderWoman :woman_superhero: my fave tbh.

Shouldn’t the lakesman now be rebranded as the lakeshalfman :joy:

The problem with either of those is they can be read as Wine-der rather then Win-der and might a competition to see who can close their car windows the quickest (assuming you have prehistoric car like mine)
