Ironman 70.3 World Championship 2019
Live Stream, TV Coverage, Route, Start Time, Race Entry
The Ironman 70.3 World Championship takes place this year in Nice, France.
There is, as far as I can tell, something of a snobbish attitude towards the 70.3 event among those who partake in the full fat ironman events, but let’s be honest, a 1.2 mile swim followed by 56 mile bike ride then running a half marathon would be way beyond the physical capabilities of most mere mortals so I’m just going to going to go ahead and give these guys the full respect they deserve.
The 70.3 World Championship is the culmination of a full year of events across the globe, and is the most prestigious of the Championship events that also includes European, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America versions. There are currently over 60 qualifying events in total, with the top 50 male triathletes and top 35 females making it to the championship event.
The IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship this year takes place on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September.

Disappointing lack of TV coverage announced so far but we’ll keep checking and post any links here. There is a promising looking section on Livestream which seems to be advertising coverage which looks like it will be worth a try:
