This weekend, Athletes will be challenged on a course that’s identical to the full-distance IRONMAN, but each discipline will be a single loop of the course. The race begins with a one-loop swim in clear Mirror Lake, complete with the famous sight line at the bottom of the lake as a guide. Transitioning in the Olympic Speed Skating Oval to the bike, scenic mountain views provide a stunning backdrop to the one-loop, 56-mile ride. Returning to the Oval, athletes will finish with a 13.1-mile run through the Village and around Mirror Lake.

The 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 Lake Placid offers 30 qualifying slots to the 2019 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nice, France.
