IRONMAN 70.3 Middle East Championship Bahrain promises to be more than just a sporting event. It is a weekend that will keep you busy with interesting family-friendly side events, as well as a number of opportunities to see all participants in the entertaining opening and closing ceremonies.
The spotlight event begins off the waters of the iconic "H" shaped building of the Four Seasons Hotel. This spectacularly designed swim, bike, and run course will bring both locals and guests ever closer to Middle Eastern history and heritage. The flat and fast point-to-point bike route itself will take participants past iconic buildings and attractions such as Bahrain Bay and the Al Fateh Grand Mosque. The bike route then heads south of the island towards the Bahrain International Circuit, home of the annual Bahrain Gran Prix Formula One race for T2.
The excitement doesn't end here. The Al Areen Wildlife Park is a reservation habitat for interesting Middle Eastern birds and animals. Participants will enjoy their run in and around the reservation before heading back after an enjoyable journey.
IRONMAN 70.3 Middle East Championship Bahrain was the first IRONMAN event in the region, now into it's second year.
