Welcome to the City of Roses!

The city of Rapperswil-Jona with its gorgeous leisure district and inviting Riviera has been the host city of the IRONMAN 70.3 Switzerland dating back to 2007. It is no coincidence that the city of roses, on the Upper Lake Zurich, has played host to this exciting event; with its numerous attractions and perfectly integrated public transport system, the city is an ideal destination for visitors.

Homely alleyways and lively squares openly invite visitors and locals to take a stroll around and soak up the atmosphere. The gardens in particular, are an unmissable site with over 20 000 roses blossoming between May and October. The silhouette of the medieval castle towering high above the lake and rooftops of the medieval part of the city, is a landmark of Rapperswil-Jona along with the castle stairs with its 53 steps, famously known as the Stairway to Heaven. This iconic feature also makes for an unforgettable highlight of the run course.

The IRONMAN 70.3 Switzerland in Rapperswil-Jona is known as one of the most spectator-friendly events across the entire IRONMAN European Tour with its consolidated event area and all locations within a short walking distance. The race boasts a 1.9k swim in the beautiful Upper Lake Zurich and a truncated bike course, which leads athletes along the lake shore and through picturesque villages. On the almost infinite descent from Goldingen back to the lake, athletes can relieve their tired legs, before the course leads them back to Rapperswil-Jona.

IRONMAN 70.3 Switzerland provides 50 qualifying slots for the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa.

    Flat lake, alpine roads with loads of spectators with cow bells and a great run (with some sneaky stairs thrown in). A good 70.3!
