Based in Catani Gardens, St Kilda, only 6km from the city centre, IRONMAN 70.3 Melbourne will be half distance triathlon racing at its best, with a big city buzz that will make it unlike any other race on the IRONMAN Oceania circuit.
IRONMAN 70.3 Melbourne will be on a centrally located, spectator friendly and super quick course that starts at the St Kilda Sea Baths, with a 1.9-km one lap swim in Port Phillip Bay. Athletes will then complete a 90-km, two lap, fully closed bike course along iconic Beach Road, finishing at the Catani Gardens in St Kilda after a two lap, 21.1-km run with coastal and magnificent Melbourne skyline views.
The new event offers athletes a chance to be among the first to race the new and improved course.
