IRONMAN 70.3 EDINBURGH TO BE DISCONTINUED
IRONMAN 70.3 Edinburgh will not return to the IRONMAN 70.3 tour in 2019
IRONMAN has taken the decision that there will be no IRONMAN 70.3 race in Edinburgh in 2019.
Over the last two years, almost 2,500 athletes have taken on the challenge of racing in the historic city and therefore such a decision like this is never easy. IRONMAN understands the disappointment this may cause for the participants and the Scottish triathlon community.
IRONMAN would like to express thanks to its partners, particularly The City of Edinburgh Council, Event Scotland, East Lothian and Midlothian Councils, our Race Directors Richard Pearson and Paul McGreal, Triathlon Scotland, all the volunteers who have assisted on this event, and of course the fans and community who supported the athletes so ably.
Scotland provides a unique landscape for triathlon racing. We’re proud of the legacy of this event and its amazing courses and locations. While it is with sadness that this announcement is made, we hope the triathlon community will continue to race triathlon events in Scotland and recommend athletes explore Triathlon Scotland for upcoming races.
In addition, there are a number of other IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 races across the UK, for example, IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire and IRONMAN Wales; and others throughout Europe. Athletes can find their next race here.
IRONMAN wishes to thank the athletes and the community for becoming part of the IRONMAN 70.3 Edinburgh story.
