THEN AND NOW

220 Triathlon Magazine - - Start -

Sit­ting around the other day post-train­ing, my friends and I started talk­ing about the cost of en­ter­ing events. I did the orig­i­nal

220 iron-dis­tance race [the 220 Marathon Triathlon at Cotswold Wa­ter Park, Cirences­ter, on 7 July] back in 1990, but can’t for the life of me re­mem­ber how much it cost to en­ter. Do you by chance have any records of that? Would be in­ter­est­ing to know. Alan Clinch 220 says: It was a mere £2.20… if the com­peti­tor brought along a vol­un­teer. If they didn’t, they’d have to pay a colos­sal £22.20. Even that wouldn’t buy you a post-race meal nowa­days!
