Ironman Triathlon Challenge
Take on an Ironman triathlon charity challenge – and brag for the rest of your life!
Dates: Various dates and locations available
Ironman is a globally recognised Triathlon offering the ultimate test of strength, stamina and determination. There are numerous events running across the globe, from Austria to Australia, to Canada or the Canary Islands.
Here in the UK, Ironman Weymouth is the main event. The course consists of a two lap swim of the stunning Weymouth Bay, which has previously played host to Olympic and Paralympic sailing. You will then move through your first transition, entering the bike stage. A 112 mile bicycle ride through the Dorset countryside combines rolling hills with stunning views of the world heritage Jurassic coastline. That’s if you take your eyes off the prize. For the final leg you will face a marathon run; 26.2 miles of coastal and countryside running. This is a family friendly event, offering numerus vantage points for spectators to cheer you on throughout the day.
Running alongside Ironman Weymouth will be the new Ironman 70.3, a new breed of sprint triathlon. This consists of a one lap swim of the Bay, a 56 mile bike through the Dorset countryside and concluding with a 13.1 mile half marathon run. But do not be fooled, this sprint course is just as gruelling as every Ironman, with plenty challenges in store.
