IRONMAN 70.3 Augusta

IRONMAN 70.3 Augusta
September 29th 2013 Augusta, Georgia

Nestled along the banks of the Savannah River, the intermedix IRONMAN 70.3 Augusta serves as one of the most thrilling and scenic events on the IRONMAN 70.3 circuit

Established in 1736, Augusta is not only one of Georgia’s oldest cities, but also a historical remnant resulting from the most revolutionary chapter in American history. Offering its guests tours throughout the city, authentic southern cuisine, access to the boyhood home of Woodrow Wilson, and the sight of majestic antebellum mansions, Augusta is a beautiful metropolis of both classical and contemporary culture. Spectators and athletes can expect an unforgettable and fierce day of competition.

Athletes will start their day swimming with the current and should anticipate record breaking times as they venture 1.2 miles in a point-to-point swim in the Savannah River.

Located at the Augusta Rowing Complex, athletes will enter transition and prepare to start their single-loop, 56-mile bike ride throughout Georgia and into the countryside of South Carolina. The hilly terrain of this one-loop course will spread out the field and be a true test of stamina, proving it to be anything but “peachy.”

Lined with spectators, athletes can expect to be cheered on from start to finish of the 13.1-mile, two-loop run throughout downtown Augusta. Participants will conclude their day with a strong finish on Broad Street, adjacent to Augusta Commons, the former home to the finish line.

There are 40 qualifying slots for the IRONMAN World Championship 70.3 in Lake Las Vegas, Henderson, NV.
