    Did the 3 8 Km Swim 180 Km Bike 42 2 Km Run in 2019

    If there is an Ironman event you are going to take on than Ironman Kalmar is the one you must do. The atmosphere all weekend is electric. The one loop swim course is well marshalled and wide enough you don't get in the way of other competitors.
    The bike section is like a race track, don't think i seen a pot hole the whole course. Closed road, not one vehicle insight, no silly corners or dangerous sections that make you on edge. he transition area is well positioned within Kalmar with easy parking leading up to the day.
    The run route is brilliant the crowds are amazing and so encouraging they get you round the run course and before you know it the red carpet is in sight. All in all if there is one Ironman you are going to do this is the one
