IRONMAN® 70.3 Staffordshire Sunday 18 June 2017
The race to get a place in IRONMAN® 70.3 Staffordshire has started as registration for the event is now open.
In the first two years the event has proved a sell-out success and organisers say people will need to be quick off their marks to be part of the line-up for the event. Further details and how to register are available here.
The event is fantastic for the whole county and this year we will be really encouraging residents, businesses and schools to get involved and make the event an even bigger success story.
Once again, the event will see competitors complete a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride and 13.1 mile half marathon, starting at Chasewater, passing through Cannock Chase before culminating at the historic Shugborough Estate.
Mark Winnington, Staffordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Growth, said:
“After a hugely successful Olympic Games for Staffordshire with Adam Peaty and Joe Clarke leading the gold rush for Team GB, we expect even more people to be inspired by their sporting success and sign up for IRONMAN in 2017.
Further details about the event and how to book your place are available here.
Kevin Stewart, Managing Director IRONMAN UK & Ireland, said:
“We get so much great feedback from athletes about their experience in Staffordshire that I am sure many people will be keen to return once again.
“Places are limited and when they are gone they are gone, so we would encourage anyone wanting to take on the Ironman challenge to sign up as soon as possible.”
