Event summary
Here are the distances available for IRONMAN 70.3 Indian Wells-La Quinta
Route information
The one-loop swim takes place in the clear waters of Lake Cahuilla. This protected reservoir provides an ideal experience for first-time athletes with a sandy beach start. The swim will feature a rolling start.
The bike course is a singular loop course that is fast and flat. Athletes leave Lake Cahuilla and travel across flat county roads before hitting the Thermal raceway. Athletes will then head through the City of La Quinta on their way towards the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens.
The two-loop run course leaves the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens area while traversing over to the Indian Wells Golf Resort. Much of the course winds around the lush course on the cart path before returning to the Tennis Gardens between each lap and again at the finish. The design of this course allows for fantastic spectator viewing at multiple points along the course.
