So where can you sign up for an Ironman race and get a free six month training program included with your entry fee? The answer, Ironman Louisville.
This fine Southern race features a time trial start, a scenic ride in the Kentucky countryside, great local support, one of the greatest finish lines on the Ironman circuit, and of course the toasty summer heat, but to entice athletes to sign up sooner rather than later, the race is offering a free six-month training plan for those individuals that sign up before 11:59 p.m. EST on Thursday, January 31.
