Iron Man 70.3, June 10

Postby Shorty » Sun Jun 10, 2018 10:06 am

There is a new iron man race in town. The other one is in Sept. ... z5I2EBbmHm

The one-loop rolling start swim takes place in Lake Monona, the same lake used by IRONMAN Wisconsin. Swimmers will start on Olin Park Beach and finish at the concrete boat ramp navigating the counter-clockwise course marked with buoys every 100 yards. Spectating will be easy using the natural banks along the shore and swim exit.

Riders leave Madison to the south using the Capital City Bike Path and travel scenic country roads through the Village of Oregon and west over the challenging Observatory Hill. Returning through the Town of Paoli and through Alliant Energy Center, riders finish using the bike trail under John Nolen Dr. to Olin Park

A counter-clockwise loop of the iconic Lake Monona Loop. Passing through Monona on the way back to Madison, the run course is scenic and challenging. Spectators will be plentiful in the many parks and great neighborhoods along the course.
