Has anybody signed up for 70.3 Miami yet? After the problems they had at there 1st race not sure I trust them.
are you going to do the race again this year?
Not sure that makes a difference... Ironman Louisville ran out of fluids etc.
For WEH/WTC events it is a numbers game. The WEH is now about halfway through their acquisition point where they start lining up a buyer. WEH = World Equity Holdings, which is the Hedge Fund Venture firm that bought out the WTC several years ago. This is one of the reasons why the WEH has been buying out popular events and now launching things like 5150 which is again another buy out.
This is all about a balance sheet to "project growth" in terms of $$$ and number of athletes and sell out at the peak.
Yes, given the huge bad press I am sure Miami will be better this year, but it still was an WEH owned event last year.
The bigger concern for me as WEH continues to buy out races and events, and especially now where they are running several events on the same weekend, can they manage the events with the resources they have?
I signed up again. Heard they will go all out this time...
how did you do last time? i was going to sign up but it sold out before i did... i want to sign up for this race but was waiting for the course maps.
