IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships: Men’s Race
September 10, 2017
Known throughout the Southeastern U.S. as the Scenic City due to its proximity to Lookout Mountain, striking riverfront and vibrant downtown, Chattanooga lures athletes with its dramatic backdrop, idyllic weather and low-key southern charm. Already host to annual IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 events, Chattanooga provides a fast course with a swim in the Tennessee River. Four bridges cross the river over the swim and a pedestrian Riverwalk runs along the entire swim course making it ideal for spectators. Chattanooga is full of attractions, eclectic dining spots and great places to stay.
“We are extremely excited that our community was chosen to host the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 Championship,” said Bob Doak, President and Chief Executive Officer for the Chattanooga Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Chattanooga is one of six cities in the country to host both an IRONMAN and an IRONMAN 70.3; Chattanooga is 1 of 10 cities in the world to host both an IRONMAN and an IRONMAN 70.3; and Chattanooga is the ONLY city on the planet to host an IRONMAN, an IRONMAN 70.3 and two days of IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship racing. That’s impressive. We would not have been able to do this without the existing strong partnership with IRONMAN and the dedication and support of the entire community.”
