IRONMAN 70.3 Weymouth will bring thousands of athletes to England’s South Coast in September for the ultimate one-day test of endurance.

The course includes a 1.2 mile swim in Weymouth Bay, a 56 mile bike ride through the Dorset countryside and a 13.1 mile run finishing on Weymouth Esplanade. See full course details here.

As host venue of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic sailing events, the Weymouth and Portland area is used to staging international sport at the highest level.

It is a popular seaside holiday resort, with its fine Georgian seafront providing an impressive backdrop to the Bay’s long arc of fine, golden sand. The views from the bay are spectacular, stretching across the horizon taking in the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline.

Weymouth’s beautiful, sandy beaches, rich heritage, and spectacular coastline make it an ideal location for IRONMAN. Watch the highlights of the 2016 Ironman events.
