Ian Henderson an Ben Wright take on IRONMAN Augusta 70.3 this Sunday 28th September.
Athletes will start their day swimming with the current and should anticipate record breaking times as they venture 1.2 miles in a point-to-point swim in the Savannah River.
Located at the Augusta Rowing Complex, athletes will enter transition and prepare to start their single-loop, 56-mile bike ride throughout Georgia and into the countryside of South Carolina. The hilly terrain of this one-loop course will spread out the field and be a true test of stamina, proving it to be anything but “peachy.”
Lined with spectators, athletes can expect to be cheered on from start to finish of the 13.1-mile, two-loop run throughout downtown Augusta. Participants will conclude their day with a strong finish on Broad Street, adjacent to Augusta Commons, the former home to the finish line.
The race gets underway at 8.30AM Bermuda time (7.30AM Augusta time) and you can follow Ian and Ben by going to the “Athlete Tracker” section of the race website by clicking on the link below :
