Large Group to Compete in Ironman 70.3

Picture Curtsey of Dave Morrison
One of the largest (if not the largest) contingent of Bermuda Triathletes ever will descend on Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA next week to race in their Ironman 70.3 event on Sunday May 21st reports Dave Morrison.

Twenty Bermuda Triathletes appear to be listed, however the group might have been as large as 26 but six athletes had to pull out for various reasons.

Chattanooga will also host the 2017 Ironman 70.3 World Championships in September so this race will likely attract a strong international field looking to test themselves on the World Championships course and hoping to grab one of the 75 age group qualifying spots for those 2017, 70.3 World Championships that next weekend’s race offers.

Bermuda has a strong contingent going including Ashley Estwanik, who will be looking for a possible podium finish. Neil Lupsic and Phil Mace are two other likely contenders for a top 20 finish in their age groups.

Sunbelt Bakery IRONMAN 70.3 Chattanooga begins with a point-to-point swim that is mostly downstream in the Tennessee River. Athletes will begin with a short up-river section before making the turn and heading downriver to the transition area. The bike course offers spectacular views of Lookout Mountain as the riders head out 11 miles south of town for a rolling 34-mile loop in Georgia. The day ends with a chance to enjoy Chattanooga’s many tourist attractions as athletes take in the Tennessee Riverwalk and the beautiful Riverfront Parkway during the two-loop run.
