Subject: IM Texas in 2018?
Sincerest apologies if I am off the beam here, but does anyone know anything about the status of IM Texas in 2018? The official IM website went from advertising it as "TBD"/"Opening Soon" to dropping it from the list of races. I had hoped to sign up but am now wondering if I need a new plan for next year. Any info (even rumors) would be helpful and appreciated. Thanks!

Takes WTC a little time to get their web sites updated and checked. Give it a few weeks. The lag between race day and next years web site is very common.

Thank you and point well taken, Greg. I just found it odd that instead of simply maintaining a status of "Opening Soon", they completely deleted it off the page and associated event map. I will try my best to be patient.

Most IMs are registering next years' race the day after... very weird what is going on with IMTX. I wonder if they are still working out dates...

That is what I thought too, Tony. And I am not sure why they would pull it completely off the map if it were just a delay in finalizing details. I was really looking forward to doing this race in 2018. I hope I didn't jinx it.

Are y'all talking about Memorial Hermann? It's listed as Opening Soon on Ironman.com, and it's the North American Championship race.

What I find odd is that no races prior to June are listed anymore. Aren't there April and May full Ironman races?

You are correct, Justin! I just saw that myself. But it just got re-listed within the past day or so. Prior to that it had been dropped off. So my anxiety attack is over, but I won't sleep peacefully until I am registered, LOL.

Funny, since for most people that's when the real worrying starts

Ha! Good point! But I never claimed to be normal. My two anxiety hurdles are registering and having me & all my stuff show up intact at the race site. After clearing those, life is good.

I must have jinxed myself, as I was pulling into the race site this past weekend when I realized I had left my running shoes at home. Luckily, home was only 5 miles away and I was able to get there and back again in time.

I literally have nightmares like this, LOL.

should be a July registration date. I've with some Ironman people about marketing/live feed/web, and they said they are working on changes, so that might be the hiccup. Either way, course was approved so it should be good to go.
