Tyler and Nikki Butterfield are finalizing their preparations for this year’s Ironman 70.3 World Championships, to take place on Sunday 30th August in Zell Am See, Austria.
Nikki will be making a welcome comeback to the sport after a lengthy break. Tyler’s preparations for these championships have not been ideal as he was sick after the Frankfurt Ironman and missed a block of training but hopefully he had had the time to prepare for these championships ahead of the Ironman World Championships in Kona, his primary focus.
With the sparkling Lake Zell as its centerpoint and glacier-covered mountains as its backdrop, the 70.3 championships will showcase Austria’s majestic scenery. The swim takes place in a lake so clean you can drink the water, the new bike course will provide athletes stunning views of the Austrian Alps, and the distractingly scenic run course circumnavigates the lake, finishing in the picturesque old town of Zell am See.
