    IRONMAN Canada builds on the tradition of the namesake race that has been part of the IRONMAN circuit for over 30 years. Since moving to Whistler in 2013 it has wowed athletes and their supporters year after year. The race runs through the traditional territory of the Squamish & Lilwat Nations.

    The race begins with a two-loop, 2.4-mile swim in the clean, shallow waters of Alta Lake. The average water temperature in late July is 67 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit, making it a perfect and comfortable wetsuit-legal swim.

    Athletes transition to their bikes at a lake side transition area before beginning a unique one-loop bike course. The 112-mile course compares to the challenging but spectacular routes at IRONMAN Lake Placid and IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene. The course begins on the Sea-to-Sky Highway before climbing into the Callaghan Valley (the site of the Nordic skiing events during the 2010 Winter Olympics). After descending back to the highway, athletes pass through the town of Whistler on their way north to Pemberton. A flat out-and-back section opens to breathtaking views of snow-capped peaks before returning to Whistler over rolling terrain.

    The two-loop run course follows the meandering Valley Trail past Lost Lake and Green Lake, allowing spectators plenty of opportunities to cheer for their athletes. At the halfway point through Whistler Village, competitors will get a boost right where it matters most. The day ends in Whistler's Olympic Plaza, a central and festive location to cross the finish line, secure your medal, and celebrate your accomplishment.

      The swim is absolutely beautiful - as you start your second lap you'll see the sun rise above the mountains around you... pretty special!! The bike course isn't great; it's basically just laps of the highway without any particularly exciting or beautiful sections. The run, however, is spectacular; the course is varied, with sections on road, in the forest, and on boardwalks around Green Lake. All in all this is an epic event. As with all Ironman events, the atmosphere at the finish line is just amazing, and the support along the course is fantastic (there were aid stations every 2km of the 42km run!)
