  1. Just wandering if anyone on here has taken part in this event. I'm seriously considering entering next year and was after some feedback on how you found it.

    You will need good kidneys ;-)

    Have not done this comp (but am interested if I could fit it in), but I go there 1-2 times a year for Biathlon and cross country skiiing.
