Ironman event coming to Bahrain

Sign up for the punishing challenge now

Ironman event coming to Bahrain

One person's punishment is another person's pleasure... Or something like that.

But, if competing in a IronMan event sounds like fun to you, then we have good news - as you can register for an event in Bahrain now.

IronMan 70.3 Bahrain is taking place on December 7 in Manama.

Also known as a half Iromman, it is a long-distange triathlon race organised by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC).  The 70.3 refers to the total distance in miles covered in the race (it's 113km).

There's a 1.9 km swim, a 90 km bike ride, and a 21.1 km run, all half what they would be in an IronMan Triathlon.

Think you have what it takes to keep up with the best (who often finish in under four hours)? Even if you take around twice as long you'll still have done well. You can also sign up as a relay team if you like.

The Bahrain stretch of the competition aims to be more than just a sporting event, with a route that takes in the historic sights of Manama as well a a bunch of family activities throughout the day.
From BHD135. Sat Dec 7.
