You are informed about the need for a medical certificate after payment. Absolutely no mention in the medical question section and no clear advice afterwards. I was initially asked for an Aerometry test which didn’t exist and what was actually required was a Cardio Pulmary Excercise Test (CPET) at a cost of £300.

The day before event I queued for a half an hour to get into expo shop and then over an hour to pay because there were only 6 people on the tills. Great way the prepare for the race.

Venue is too compact with poor viewing for spectators of swim, transition, bike in / out and finish line. Very poor management of venue access points and crossing points.

There was no spectators on the bike course away from transition. It was raining, but even so a poor turnout. Drafting was common with pelotons forming.

Run is surprisingly hilly for a course described as flat and an awkward twisty course.

This was my fourth Ironman event and my least enjoyable.
