Feck – I’d better start training!!!
I feel very lucky to have won a place through a ballot. Although – is it really a win to have to jump off a ferry into a freezing Norwegian fjord? Is it a win to then bike 112 hilly miles? Is it a win to have to running up a mountain called zombie hill?
I think most people would describe it as a punishment.
I’ve read they’re going to change the entry process from next year. I suspect to make it harder for no-hopers like myself to get in 🙂
Considering the rise in the number of long distance extreme races I’d guess Norseman will become like Iron Man Kona and an athlete will have to qualify to do it.
Unfortunately, I forgot I’d also entered the ballot for Celtman so I was a bit shocked when I got
I haven’t ever been successful in a ballot for a race. Then I get in twice in a row! D’OH!
I’ve written to Celtman to apologize and ask they give the place to someone else.
Hopefully, another lucky person will also ‘win’!
