Ironman 70.3 Goa, India’s top-ranked endurance challenge, is back, with the race slated to take place at the historic Miramar Beach.
The event returns with participants competing in a 1.9-kilometre swim, a 90-kilometre bike ride, and a 21-kilometre run in some of Goa’s most renowned places.
The World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) organizes a series of long-distance triathlon races called Ironman Triathlons. It is commonly regarded as one of the world’s most demanding one-day sporting events. In an Ironman Triathlon, each of the swim, bike, and run portions is half the distance of that segment.
Over 1,100 triathletes from Switzerland, Singapore, France, Germany, Australia, Qatar, Japan, and other countries competed in the inaugural event in 2019.
“We are excited that Ironman 70.3 Goa is returning in 2022! We look forward to celebrating with our athletes in Goa and the region, as they pursue their best performance on race day. As international travel continues to open, we cannot wait to welcome the return of IRONMAN racing to India,” said, Jeff Edwards, Managing Director – Asia, Ironman Group.
“We are delighted to announce the return of Ironman 70.3 Goa which will be held in November this year. We are continuing to build on our success from the first edition in 2019 which received overwhelming response from the triathlon community in India and abroad. are truly excited to move forward to host the Ironman 70.3 Goa 2022 in its full glory,” said, Deepak Raj, 22-times Ironman finisher, Co-founder and CEO of Yoska.
