Looks a lot like the old Challenge Melbourne course. Coffee stop at Black Rock each lap on the bike. 

The only question everyone should be asking is,. "How cold will the water be?" It was only 15 degrees November 2019. A bit colder than usual.

It was at least 17 degrees through November, I started swimming in October and I'm soft.

Calm down. Didn't say I would be racing it. I'll fly over & do the hell ride with all the other MAAP, Rapha wearing twats. Drink coffee, eat donuts & laugh at you Ironman kooks.

You couldn’t keep up with those rides.  
 

maybe you’d be more suited to the tri alliance beginners bike sessions.

It maybe my hatred of riding Beach Road shining through, but I find it a pretty uninspiring course. Also lapped courses bore me

I am pretty sure they will send out emails if it gets close but I would think they will jam on 3000 if they could.  

I'm the same re money.  Just paid for Geelong and car rego etc... and to put another $500 on it now when it's not for 8 months seems crazy.  

Mind you, could be worse.  Saw Port is about $916 for entry. INSANE.

Given how quick the full IM sold out in the first two years in Melbourne (minutes); yes I think it may sell out very quickly

I don’t believe the sport is anything like it was in 2011 when they opened entries to Ironman here.

With Taupo world champs a week or two after for the 2020 race, I don't think it will sell out the first year. If there's good weather conditions and a lot of competitors get PB results, then expect the second year to sell out.

Wow 3000! Crazy! 

 

I haven't done a long race in a couple of years so have a few race dollars up my sleeve. I've just had 2nd babe so mine is more so training/family time and Feb is too early to make that call. But really Nov should be plenty of time to get enough in me to go around and have some fun :) def not in it for sheep stations haha

I said if they could they would have 3000.  
 

I think there will be an influx on day 1-2.  Then slow big time on entries.
