Seriously? I don't buy that. How could that even be enforced? "You peed....no i didnt...whats that...it's water".


I mastered the 'arc' in Chattanooga. I think someone posted a How to pee like a Pro video on FB. Roll short leg up, end out, boom, I was pee free and dry as a proverbial bone. I would not have got away with "it was water". The chick behind me was actually impressed, possibly because she wasn't sprayed with piss kicked up from my tire but possibly because she saw how pleased I was with myself and didn't want to ruin my enjoyment.

As a side note, if you go 'to the left' in the US then you risk actually hitting the marshall so ....something to be careful of.

If you race in the states, it is a lot easier if you "dress to the right" so you can go off the side of the road. If you are naturally a "leftie" it can be tough especially in bibs.

Just listened to a podcast interview by the Real Starky with Pro Barrett Brandon, regarding the change tent urination issue in Chattanooga. Mr. Brandon apologized to the volunteers and other competitors, acknowledged pissing in the change tent was a bad decision, but one made in the heat of the competition of his first Ironman event, and says never again. I appreciate Mr. Brandon's comments. I wish him well in the future.

I never received any sort of response from the WTC to my initial inquiry to them about this issue, and prior to the OP on this Forum on October 8. All in all the WTC is an athlete unfriendly outfit in my view.

Was that a surprising revelation?

Not really, just had hoped for an answer to a specific Question.....you would think with the $$$ we spend and the $$$ WTC makes, they could at least answer a specific question or if not then say, we cant answer that question. But no just crickets.

I don't know if you saw my post above, but it was genuinely amusing when at the pro meeting for Miami 70.3 the race director mentioned that. I am 100% sure it was because of this thread.

So the message was "received." ha

Paula Radcliffe did this in front of BBC cameras at the London Marathon in 2005. She ran 2h17m. Weight matters...

in running..
I believe having diarrhea while racing is entirely different.
