I am considering registering for the 2010 Ironman in Wisconsin as my first! I wondered if anyone had recommendations on signing up for this race. I know it is a popular race. Do I need to be in Madison the day after race day (I'm doing Nation's this year, which, I believe, is the same day as WI)? Or would I be able to sign up online with no problem?
I'm not sure what I'm getting myself into here!
I signed up on line for the 2008 race. With the new registration procedures requiring on-site people to pay up front, I think that there will be on-line slots available.
It is a great race with a pretty challenging bike course. The crowd support is amazing! Good luck.
IM-Couer D'alene is still open for next June. I did it this year and I'm signed up for next year. Beautiful lake swim, challenging bike course and the people are so supportive there. I would definitely recommend it if you schedule allows it.
Thanks for the advice! I'm officially signed up for the 2010 Coeur d'Alene race. A great friend of mine signed up this morning and it will be his first as well. Also, I am originally from Idaho, so my family can come up for it! It all of a sudden made perfect sense!
So, I guess I need to go get on my bike!
What have I done?!?
Wise choice, Dirk! Couer D'alene is beautiful. I'll be doing some cross training throughout the fall marathon season, but beginning in December I'll be in full IM mode. -Hugh
Thanks Hugh! I hope we can get in some IM training together!
