Ironman will feature live coverage of 19 events through the Ironman Now Facebook page this year, including Ironman Canada in Penticton.

For the third year in a row live coverage of Ironman events can be seen on Facebook Watch.

According to a press release from Ironman today, over 5.3 million people have tuned into Ironman races for at least one minute of the company’s live event broadcasts on Facebook. Now entering its third year of the partnership, Ironman will stream 19 events this year, up from the 17 last year and 15 the year before.

Triathlon fans can tune into the Ironman Now Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/IRONMANnow.

Included on the 2020 schedule is Ironman Canada, which returns to Penticton after a seven-year stretch in Whistler. The Ironman Now Facebook Watch schedule kicks off with Ironman New Zealand on March 7 and ends back in Taupo for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship.

This year’s Kona coverage will once again be the most extensive, with 20 hours of race day coverage scheduled.
