Ironman announce new 70.3 Tasmania!

IRONMAN have just announced their latest addition to the triathlon race calendar, and it’s 70.3 Tasmania here in Hobart! The inaugural event is set for a February 2023 start and I’m sure this is will become a “bucket list” event for many long distance triathletes! Who’s in? πŸ˜†

There’s no official word on the exact course routes yet, just teasers. It will be a chilly (but calm) swim in the Derwent River, followed by a lumpy bike course with “the most vertical gain of any IRONMAN 70.3 race in Oceania!” The run course will likely be fairly flat. My guess is out along the Intercity Cycleway and back into Hobart. Whatever the course, you can bet that down here in Tassie it will be a challenging triathlon and one well worth training for!

    1. Noooo. Nothing spoils a 90km bike ride like having to run a half marathon afterwards! πŸ˜‚
