Ironman 70.3 Muncie (half ironman)
Discover the charm of the Hoosier Sate by racing in IRONMAN 70.3 Muncie. It’s no wonder why this family-friendly town has been hosting athletes and spectators for over 40 years. Outdoor adventures, children’s activities and a memorable IRONMAN experience keeps athletes coming back every summer.
Swim – The 1,275-acre body of water will have an expected water temperature of 78° F. Due to the size of Prairie Creek Reservoir, the water temperature can change quickly race week so participants are advised to bring a wetsuit if they have one. The water is usually very calm, but heavy winds can cause the water to become slightly choppy.
Bike – Athletes can expect a very fast out-and-back bike course with 56 miles of closed state highways and country roads that wind through rural Delaware and Henry counties. The course hovers approx. 1,000 feet above sea level with less than a couple hundred feet of elevation change. Light winds usually favor athletes on the return trip.
Run – After the fast out-and-back bike course athletes are treated to a competitive run around the south side of Prairie Creek Reservoir. The course continues over rolling hills that challenge athletes before finishing back at Prairie Creek Reservoir.
