Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga, TN
Sunday, May 21, 2017
Race - Triathlon
Dubbed the Scenic City, outdoorsy Chattanooga presents a course nestled against the towering Cumberland Plateau and the rambling Tennessee River.
Chattanooga, Tennessee lures athletes with its dramatic scenery, idyllic weather and low-key southern charm. After the successful debut of the full distance race in 2014, Sunbelt Bakery IRONMAN 70.3 Chattanooga offers the perfect training opportunity for those getting ready for the September race, or a chance to race in one of the sport's most welcoming race sites for those seeking a half-distance race opportunity.
Sunbelt Bakery IRONMAN 70.3 Chattanooga begins with a point-to-point swim that is mostly downstream in the Tennessee River. Athletes will begin with a short up-river section before making the turn and heading downriver to the transition area. The bike course offers spectacular views of Lookout Mountain as the riders head out 11 miles south of town for a rolling 34-mile loop in Georgia. The day ends with a chance to enjoy Chattanooga's many tourist attractions as athletes take in the Tennessee Riverwalk and the beautiful Riverfront Parkway during the two-loop run.
