Tune up for IRONMAN Arizona, or simply enjoy this half-distance treasure in Tempe.
Set at the same venue as the wildly popular IRONMAN Arizona, this race is the perfect tune-up for the full-distance race in November, or just a great way to get out and compete in a half-distance event in a phenomenal setting.
The race begins at Tempe Beach Park, just west of the Mill Avenue Bridge. The swim takes place in a calm, manmade lake with water temperatures in the mid 60s. The three-loop (each loop is 18.5 miles) bike course is a relatively flat and winds through Tempe before offering some scenic vistas of the Sonoran desert. The two-loop run follows a 6.5-mile loop around Tempe Town Lake with some great views of Arizona State University and the developing landscape of Tempe.
Just minutes from Phoenix airport, Tempe is a perfect race venue that's easy to get to from anywhere in the world. As home to one of America's largest universities, Tempe offers lots of sun and heat, which makes this this a great recreational destination for triathletes and their families.
The 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 Arizona will offer 30 qualifying slots to the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa.
