From the organizer

Organizer's website

Incorporating the iconic Busselton Jetty, IRONMAN Western Australia is renowned worldwide for being the place to go for a personal best. The bike and run courses are among the flattest on the global IRONMAN circuit and the IRONMAN 70.3 event is no different, with an almost identical course to the IRONMAN race that includes a fantastic start from a pontoon at the end of the jetty.

Rolling Swim Start

Athletes are set off in one continuous line for the swim start. It will take approximately 15 minutes to get the entire field across the swim start line.

In effect, this will create a ‘time trial’ dynamic for the race and for the determination of the final results.

Each athlete individual race time will start when they cross the swim start timing mat, under the swim start arch.

The (on-shore) pre swim start area, will be divided into starting zones based on an athletes predicted swim time for the 1.9km course.

There are 4 swim zone/corals:
  • Zone 1: Under 30 minutes
  • Zone 2: 30 minutes < 35 minutes
  • Zone 3: 35 minutes < 45 minutes
  • Zone 4: 45 minutes < 1hr 10 minutes

–  Athletes will seed themselves into these zones based on predicted swim times.

–  Groups will commence a rolling start based on these groups with fastest athletes on course first. E.g. in the 30 min zone.

–  Athletes timing chips will activate once they cross designated swim start timing mat, at the entry ramp to the swim course.
