IRONMAN Weymouth removed from the calendar from 2017

IRONMAN 70.3 Weymouth continues on Sunday 17th September 2017 

Here is the answer to one of the most frequently asked questiosn I've received in recent months... and in not unexpected news (to me at least), IRONMAN 70.3 Weymouth will return for 2017, but the full-distance event will be withdrawn

Here is the full announcement from the IRONMAN UK team.

IRONMAN 70.3 Weymouth will take place on Sunday 17th September 2017, so get ready as entries opening on Wednesday 9th November at midday.

There has also been speculation about the full distance event. Weymouth was the first time we had combined a full distance and 70.3 on the same day. Since the event a review has been undertaken with the authorities and consultation with the local communities affected by the road closures. The conclusion is that we will withdraw the full distance event from the race going forward to ensure that we can continue to deliver the best race experience for athletes. Two full distance races remain on the calendar with IRONMAN UK in July and IRONMAN Wales in September.

For those of you who took part last year, we’re sure you’ll agree that Weymouth is a fantastic setting, offering everything that you (and your supporters!) could wish for at a triathlon – harbour sea swim with stunning Jurassic coast backdrop, a bike course loop that takes in some challenging hills, lovely long descents amidst the Dorset countryside, followed by a flat multi lap run in and around the town and harbour.

All combined with perfect spectator viewing for the crowds to line the route all the way to the finish line – or for them to while away the hours on the beach or in one of the many seafront restaurants or explore the area whilst your busy exerting yourselves!

Athletes looking at their race season can choose from 5 UK races currently open for entry covering IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire, IRONMAN 70.3 UK, IRONMAN UK and IRONMAN Wales. Furthermore, IRONMAN 70.3 Dublin will confirm its opening date shortly. Ahead of entries opening on Wednesday 9th November, further information about IRONMAN 70.3 Weymouth can be found at and athlete inquiries may be directed to

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Weymouth or one of our UK destinations in 2017.
