IRONMAN has announced its broadcast schedule for the 2023 season. The 2023 full-distance IRONMAN® triathlon broadcast schedule will feature 12 stops around the globe including both the men’s and women’s 2023 VinFast IRONMAN World Championship, which will be available on IRONMAN.com/LIVE, and IRONMAN YouTube and Facebook channels. The 2023 season IRONMAN 70.3® triathlon broadcast schedule will feature 13 events around the world, including the two-day VinFast IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship triathlon in Lahti, Finland, available for the second straight year on Outside Watch. The broadcast season will kick off in California on April 1, with the Athletic Brewing IRONMAN 70.3 Oceanside triathlon.
“We’re excited to deliver another full year of live race programming for both full-distance IRONMAN Series and half distance IRONMAN 70.3 Series globally,” said Julia Polloreno, Vice President, Content Production and Distribution for The IRONMAN Group. “The broadcasts will feature some of the top race destinations around the globe and bring audiences closer our racing than ever before. We couldn’t think of a better place to start than with the iconic 2023 Athletic Brewing IRONMAN 70.3 Oceanside triathlon in Southern California, where the origins of the sport lie.”
Race coverage will immerse viewers in all the action and local scenery of the global portfolio of race venues while following the professional competition. Coverage will begin with a pre-race show that previews the pro field and course while also including exclusive interviews with triathlon personalities and other special guests.
The live broadcasts will be hosted by a team of the sport’s greats, including IRONMAN World Champions and Hall of Famers Greg Welch and Michellie Jones, as well as IRONMAN champions Dede Griesbauer and Michael Lovato. Matt Lieto will also be providing analysis from both on the course and in the studio throughout the 2023 season. Various guest commentators such as three-time IRONMAN World Champion Mirinda Carfrae, will bring additional perspectives and insights to the live coverage, which will showcase the epic battles of the professional athletes as they swim, bike, and run iconic full-distance IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 courses all around the world.
For each broadcast event, IRONMAN Now’s A Fighting Chance race-week series will return bringing viewers exclusive behind-the-scenes footage into the inner, everyday lives of elite triathletes for a real, unfiltered glimpse at athletes chasing their triathlon goals and attempting to turn dreams into reality.
