Ironman 70.3 Austin – Defending champs return for an indoor finish

The day starts with a 1.2-mile, one-loop swim in Decker Lake, a recreational freshwater lake located at Walter E. Long Park. Following the swim, athletes continue their day with a scenic one-loop, 56-mile bike ride passing through rolling Texas farmlands, complete with expansive ranches, cedar-covered vistas, sunflower fields and prickly pear cacti. The bike portion concludes at Luedecke Arena where athletes will kick off their three-loop half marathon. Taking athletes back to Walter E. Long Park and along the shores of Decker Lake, spectators will be able to cheer their athletes on as they re-enter the Travis County Expo Center and finish their day inside the Luedecke Arena.
