Cave, Collington Highlight 70.3 Cartagena Colombia

Friday 01 December 2017
Cartagena de Indias is the queen of the Caribbean coast, a fairy-tale city of romance, legends and superbly preserved beauty lying within an impressive 13km of centuries-old colonial stone walls. For athletes, Cartagena offers a place to think outside the tourism box. Stroll through the old town day and night, soak up the atmosphere, and pause to ward off the heat in one of the city's many open-air cafes.

Participants will swim 1.2 miles (1.9 km), in the protected waters of the Bahía de las Ánimas. Spectators will have a great view of the entire Swim Course from the Convention Center and many of the surrounding boardwalks and marinas. Water temperatures are expected to be around 80º Fahrenheit (28º Celsius). The transition between the swim and bike will take place in the Camellón de los Mártires Square in front of Cartagena's iconic clock tower, La Torre del Reloj.

Athletes will then ride a 56-mile (90 km) bike ride from the Convention Center and the Torre del Reloj to the Via al Mar, which is the highway that connects Cartagena with the city of Barranquilla. Along the course, the athletes will enjoy views of many beaches and mangroves. This flat and fast out and back course will see high average speeds.

The two-loop run course will take athletes on a 13.1 mile (21km) journey through the Old City of Cartagena. Participants will make their way through the west part of the city with breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea which borders the historic walled city.  Upon entering the walled city, athletes will step back in time to the colonial years and pass through the colorful and historical architecture that makes Cartagena a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Athletes will finish their IRONMAN 70.3 journey in front of the Cartagena landmark La Torre del Reloj.

IRONMAN 70.3 Cartagena offers 40 qualifying slots to the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.

Professionals compete for P-750 points plus $25,000 prize purse.

Beals, Blatchford win IRONMAN Mont Tremblant

Monday 20 Aug 2018 [Triathlon News]

Antoine Jolicoeur Desroches (CAN), a local favorite in the Mont Tremblant area pleased his fan base from the get-go with a two and half minute lead coming out of the water. He stayed off the front for the opening km's of the bike, but forfeited the lead to a hard charging Cody Beals (CAN) at 55 km. Beals, making his debut at IRONMAN racing, was in uncharted waters once the bike went beyond 90 km. The multiple IRONMAN 70.3 winner put his head down and waited for the Sanders train to make its appe more

Monday 20 Aug 2018 [Triathlon News]

It was an exciting 2018 edition of the KMD IRONMAN Copenhagen. The conditions in the morning were perfect, the lagoon at Amager Strandpark was crowded and perfectly prepared for over 3,000 athletes. From the beginning, all eyes were on the British pro Tim Don who suffered from a fractured cervical spine only a few days before racing the IRONMAN World Championship last year. He made his way back incredibly fast, aiming for the Kona slot here in Copenhagen. He made it out of the water third (45:56 more

Two British hopefuls enjoyed a super final shakedown ahead of the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship with victories on a challenging course in Ireland. Last year’s world championship runner-up Emma Pallant and Elliot Smales claimed victories at IRONMAN 70.3 Dun Laoghaire on a new course that tested all with the ride in the famed Wicklow Mountains National Park. Pallant was overtaken on the climbs by teak-tough 40-something Tine Deckers with the Belgian taking a 1:45 buffer on to the run. The young more

Monday 20 Aug 2018 [Triathlon News]

While the 2016 IRONMAN 70.3 world champion Tim Reed is not venturing to the 2018 edition in South Africa, the likable Australia is showing signs of returning to his irrepressible best when he ran his way to victory at IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan. Reed bided his time as he and defending champion Mike Phillips shared the pace in the water and on the 90km ride. The Australian found his running legs with his 1:18 effort enough to ensure an emphatic six-minute win on the island resort. more
