“It’s an exciting time for the sport of triathlon in Australia. A year after our athletes will have experienced a world championship event on home soil, with Mooloolaba hosting the first Ironman 70.3 World Championship in the Asia-Pacific region, they’ll have the chance to compete at another major championship event at home in Western Sydney,” said Geoff Meyer, Chief Executive Officer for Ironman Asia-Pacific.
The 2017 Ironman 70.3 Asia-Pacific Championship will offer a US $75,000 professional prize purse and 50 age-group qualifying slots for the 2017 Ironman 70.3 World Championship taking place in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA.
