About Ironman

Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire takes place on Sunday 9 June 2019

Established in 2015, the event quickly grew to become the biggest Ironman 70.3 race in the UK. Nearly 8,000 competitors take part since while the race has also attracted some of the UK and the world’s best professional athletes.

Now in its fifth year, the new run course becomes the first major alteration of the current version of the event since moving from Shugborough Estate to Stafford town centre in 2018. The full event consists of a 1.2-mile swim at Chasewater Country Park, followed by a 56-mile bike through the Staffordshire countryside and Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, finishing with a 13.1-mile run through Stafford town centre, now also taking in Stafford Castle.

Over 2,500 athletes are expected to take part in the race on Sunday 9 June.
