After evaluating the continued status of the COVID-19 pandemic in Austria with local authorities and the resulting restrictions in place, IRONMAN has announced that the IRONMAN 70.3 Graz will not take place in May and has been rescheduled for August 15, 2021.
A spokesperson says: “We acknowledge that this latest shift may not be the news our atheletes were hoping to receive but, along with local stakeholders, believe the event will be better positioned in August and wanted to ensure that our athletes know as early as possible.
“We remain just as focused on creating an exceptional race in the future. Our team will continue to work hard developing and refining operational plans in a manner consistent with local community objectives and within the guidelines and recommendations set by public health entities as it relates to COVID-19. We thank our athletes for their continued understanding and look forward to returning with a great event later this year.”
