What is the worst conditions you’ve ever trained or raced in? Let us know!

great motivation for getting out of the house with these hot days

Ironman Kentucky 2014: my first full distance, blistering heat and humidity. I finished but only with lots of walking. Then Ironman Kentucky 2018 (after they moved the event from August to October): insanely cold with wind and driving rain. DNF because I was shaking so much on the bike I couldn’t control the handlebars.

Saw Mark & Fraser in Frankfurt this year, from the start of the 2nd bike loop target times pretty much went out of the window with the heat

NYC Triathlon was canceled due to the heat index being 112 degrees.

The hardest for me was IM Frankfurt 2015 extremely hot day close to 40C with hardly any shade on the run. IM Ireland 2019 in the rain and wind all day, swim was cancelled but still hard day in the office. I won my AG in Ireland so next stop is Kona woo hooo

I don’t like the cold, and I don’t like the heat, but what bothers me the most is jellyfish.

Outlaw 2018 with 40-50 mph gusts from the storm coming over and wet, cold conditions. Held the tt brake levers so hard my hands went numb and had huge grooves from the bars. Bike kept twitching with the winds and plenty of other riders came off. Was more scary than the worst roller coast for 7 hours. Just happy to finish in one piece that day without dropping the bike. Wasnt much better this year with flooding so the bike course got cancelled. Was a VERY happy boy compared to lots of others hearing we could skip the ride.

Ironman Ireland this year in Youghal. Cancelled swim and horrendous rain all day. Brownlee won but anyone who finished that day was a champion!!!
