IRONMAN 70.3 Lake Stevens

IRONMAN 70.3 Lake Stevens
Open July 21st 2013Lake Stevens, Washington

An idyllic resort community in the 1920s, Lake Stevens is not only a gorgeous race venue but a perfect family vacation destination.

Set in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range yet only 45 minutes from downtown Seattle, IRONMAN 70.3 Lake Stevens offers the peace and tranquility of a small-town race combined with the bustling Pacific Northwest action of the Emerald City.

An ideal family getaway, the lake itself stretches more than 1,000 glassy acres, and offers plenty of swimming, boating or tubing. Bass, perch and rainbow trout are bountiful enough to keep fishing enthusiasts happy for days. And to the east, you'll see a stunning mountain view—which opens up to numerous parks and trails designed for biking, hiking and horseback riding.

Athletes will begin with a 1.2-mile swim from the public boat launch in downtown Lake Stevens. The moderately hilly 56-mile bike course traverses some of the most beautiful terrain in the Pacific Northwest. The race finishes with a run that goes beyond the downtown area and into the surrounding community.

Many athletes use the race as a tune-up for IRONMAN Canada, since it offers similar terrain and average temperatures in July are between 54 and 75 degrees.

A trip to the Washington area isn’t complete without a visit to the famous Pike's Place Market in downtown Seattle or the Boeing Future of Flight Aviation Center and Boeing Tour. Reward yourself post-race with a little shopping at the Seattle Premium Outlets in nearby Tulalip, Wash.

There are 50 qualifying slots to the IRONMAN World Championship 70.3 in Lake Las Vegas, Henderson, NV.
