Ironman 70.3 Weymouth
Jewel of the Jurassic Coast
As host venue of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic sailing events, the Weymouth area is an international sport event haven. Situated off the World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast, this race is a first-timer favourite, featuring sandy beaches, spectacular coastline and the stunning Dorset countryside.
IRONMAN 70.3 Weymouth is a qualifier for the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.
The one-loop 1.9 km (1.2 mile) swim course is composed of one clockwise lap in a triangle layout. Swim straight out away from Weymouth’s beach and two right turns later you will be headed back to transition.
The one-loop 56 mile (90 km) bike course consists of one anti-clockwise loop through the rolling Dorset Countryside up North to King’s Stag and back to Weymouth via Godmanstone and Dorchester.
The two and a half loop 13.1 mile (21.1 km) run course begins with a run from Lodmoor Country Park to the finish area, along Weymouth’s esplanade. This provides a spectator friendly run course with support from family and friends.
