IRONMAN 70.3 Finland
Lahti is one of the leading event cities in Finland and the gateway to the Finnish Lake District. Sport has always been a big part of Lahti's identity. Due to their exceptional tradition of hosting international sporting events, the city is used to the spotlight.
A unique element of this race is its start time at 3.30 pm. The finish line will be open until midnight, where, regardless of your finish time, it will still be bright and all athletes will get to witness the nordic midnight sun. The swim will take place in lake Vesijärvi at Passenger Harbor and around Sibelius Hall. It consists of one loop in this clear Finnish lake. The bike leg leads athletes through very typical Finnish landscapes: forests, lakesides, and rolling hills. The bike course is relatively fast without any challenging ascents. The run will be very flat on asphalt and gravel surface, and leads all athletes along the lakeside.
1.2 mile swim, 56 mile cycle, 13.1 mile run
