Chattanooga in Tennessee has been chosen as the host the 2017 Ironman 70.3 World Championships. The championship race will be a two-day event with the professional and age-group women racing on Saturday 9 September 2017 and the professional and age-group men racing on Sunday 10 September.
After its European debut in Austria in 2015, the 2016 70.3 World Champs shifts to the Southern Hemisphere for the first time – in Queensland, Australia’s Sunshine Coast – before returning to North America in 2017.
Ironman expects more than 185,000 registered athletes to race at over 100 Ironman 70.3 races around the world throughout the 2017 qualifying season. From those races, more than 4,000 athletes will qualify to race in the 2017 70.3 Worlds.
