All the answers for 2023. Or, at least some of the questions.
Regarding the “challenges,” is this really new or just new to North America? Back when IM Switzerland was in Zürich, before moving to Thun, you’d get a special third participant award if you also did the Rapperswil 70.3 (basically at the opposite end of Lake Zürich). I wasn’t aware or didn’t recall this benefit/feature before being asked if I did Rapperswil at IM, wherein they gave me another sticker to flag that I was to get the additional medal at the end.
Um ... Question #4 ... what are you actually saying here?
The future of tri should look like .... swimrun x skimo?
I signed up for four 70.3s in 2022. Went 0-4 in making it to the start line. I'm hoping that 2023 brings better fortune. I would also like it if 2023 brought better cancellation/deferral policies.
Happy New Year!
Loved looking into your crystal ball.
