IRONMAN France IS confirmed for 2017 - Sunday July 23rd

It's consistently been one of the most popular IRONMAN events of the European calendar, and a venue that attracts huge numbers of British athletes every year - and now IRONMAN France in Nice has been confirmed with a new date of Sunday 23rd July 2017. There had been concerns over its place in the calendar at all following the terror attack in Nice on 14th July last year, but its place in the schedule has now been confirmed with a revised date.

The race now falls one week after IRONMAN UK (Bolton) on 16th July 2017. Here is the official confirmation.

We are happy to announce that registration is now open for the iconic IRONMAN France Nice that will take place on Sunday July 23, 2017.

After several meetings with local authorities, we are excited to announce that the 2017 race will have the same exceptional course as in prior years. The date change was the result of a one year moratorium on all events at this location, out of respect for the victims and families of the July 2016 attack.

Our ambition, as always, is to exceed all of your expectations and provide an extraordinary race experience. Swim in the crystal clear water of the Mediterranean Sea, cycle on a challenging, one-loop bike course between the coast and the mountain range, and finish your unforgettable day with a marathon on the Promenade des Anglais.
