Tyler Butterfield has decided to adopt a “one race at a time” approach for the 2017 season as he attempts to qualify again for the Ironman World Championships in Kona in October. Rather han lay out a schedule he will make decisions on future races based on prior results in order to optimize his prepration for Kona whilst still achieving the points needed to qualify.
Following on from his 4th place finish in the Dubai 70.3 this week, Tyler will next race on the 22nd April 2017 at the Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas, which is the North American Championships.
Athletes will begin with a 2.4-mile swim in Lake Woodlands. The rolling start, point-to-point swim begins at North Shore Park and ends at Town Green Park. The two-loop, out and back 112-mile bike course takes participants south through the scenic, rolling farmland of east Texas. The day ends with a 26.2-mile run taking place entirely within The Woodlands and concluding with a spectacular finish on Waterway Ave. For more go to :
