IRONMAN Austria will be broadcast live on Facebook

As I highlighted earlier this week, two major iron-distance races on the European schedule this week, both with significant British interest. Not only that – you can watch them both live. In addition to the previously published details on Challenge Roth, here’s how you can follow the action from Austria.

Announced last week – full details below – IRONMAN has announced for 2018 and content partnership with Facebook for live programming and IRONMAN Austria will be the second event on that schedule, following Sunday’s race at IRONMAN France. Remember, David McNamee, Susie Cheetham and Emma Pallant will all start that race believing that they can win.

If you are a Facebook user, the location you need to ‘Like’ is www.facebook.com/IRONMANnow

The full list of 2018 races to be broadcast is outlined below – and of particular interest is the inclusion of IRONMAN UK, Bolton (15th July) on that schedule.

IRONMAN will uniquely produce its live coverage for a social audience on Facebook, incorporating viewer interaction through real-time polls, fan engagement and discussion, and user generated content from spectators on the course.
