IRONMAN has unveiled its spring 2024 European IRONMAN® 70.3® triathlon race calendar. Several popular IRONMAN 70.3 events across the IRONMAN 70.3 European Series are now open for general registration.
“Whilst we are fully focused on providing athletes with the best possible event experience this year, we are excited to get the ball rolling in preparing for the 2024 IRONMAN 70.3 Triathlon season. We are thrilled to announce next year’s IRONMAN 70.3 European spring races in one go, giving athletes an opportunity to plan and prepare their season sooner rather than later,” said Thomas Veje Olsen, Managing Director of The IRONMAN Group in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
“These races provide the perfect opportunity for those looking to test their swim-bike-run winter training block, athletes looking for an early qualification slot to the 2024 VinFast IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Taupō, New Zealand. And those athletes who are eyeing out an IRONMAN event in the summer but looking for a confidence booster before their main goal.”
“We will be announcing more 2024 race dates in due course, including events in the Middle East and Africa. We look forward to sharing many more finish line memories with our athletes and being inspired by the many inspirational moments that we get to witness run down our red carpet.”
The 2024 IRONMAN 70.3 events will offer men’s and women’s qualification Slots to the VinFast IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship taking place on December 14th – 15th in Taupō, New Zealand. This will be the first time the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship has been held in New Zealand.
