TriMuskoka has made a video of the Ironman 70.3 Muskoka swim course for athletes who aren’t able to get up to the course before race weekend. The video includes captions with tips about the course for swimmers and also provides info about practice times for athletes in the area who want to head out and get some open water practice on the course (in the summer, the group swims every Wednesday and Friday morning at 6AM). Ironman 70.3 Muskoka is a major race for triathletes in the eastern part of the country each year.
For many triathletes, the swim is the most dreaded leg of the race so adequate preparation is a must to avoid anxiety in the open water and to perform to the best of your ability. TMC will post a series of general and race-specific open water swim tip videos and articles throughout the spring and summer as the Canadian triathlon season gets underway.
There is a new course for Ironman 70.3 Muskoka this year. Read more about it here.
