IRONMAN 70.3 Greece Triathlon Event Rescheduled for October 25

The organizers of IRONMAN 70.3 Greece 2020 have announced that the mega triathlon event has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Originally scheduled to take place on April 5 at Costa Navarino in Messinia, the event has now been moved to October 25.

Athletes that have registered to take part in the event will receive an email with further details.

“We look forward to providing them with an exceptional race experience in the future,” the organizers said.

The organizers decision to postpone the event is in line with the latest measures announced by the Greek government in efforts to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Considered one of the most difficult triathlon events in the world, IRONMAN counts 260 events in over 60 countries in six continents with more than 1 million athletes.

The event was held in Greece for the first time in 2019, with the participation of 1,500 athletes from all over the world.

IRONMAN 70.3 includes half the distances of the original event: A 1,9 km swimming race; a 90 km bicycle ride and a 21.1 km marathon run.

This year, IRONMAN 70.3 Greece will inaugurate the IRONKIDS Greece – Navarino, a race designed for kids from 2 to 13 years old.
