Wimbleball triathlon registration

We are volunteering for the weekend at the Wimbleball 70.3 Ironman triathlon. It is one of the toughest courses in Europe and is a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride and 13.1 mile run, adding up to 70.3 miles in total.
Don't worry, we are only helping out, not actually doing it. Ben our brother in law is doing the hard work tomorrow, but Jemima, our niece, got the first medal for the family today. She ran 500 metres on a hilly course, and we were all really pleased with her performance.
We spent all day today helping the athletes set up their equipment and tomorrow is race day.  Our shift starts at 5am, and it should really exciting as we will be up close to all of the action.
