2014 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships to be hosted in Canada, chances for Europe in near future
World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) announced today, that the first World Championship outside us-american soil will be 2014 in Canada. IRONMAN 70.3 WC will be hosted in Mont-Tremblant, Canada on September 7.
Either Australia, Central Europe or Asia could be provide the race venue in 2015 or at least 2016. The odds may prefer Australia as of today, but Europe has some great races in the mix too.
Mont-Tremblant to Host IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship
IRONMAN has chosen Mont-Tremblant, Québec, Canada to host the 2014 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.
Québec’s Prime Minister, Pauline Marois, and the Mayor of the City of Mont-Tremblant, Pierre Pilon, were on hand to make the announcement about the race this afternoon. Taking place on September 7, 2014, this will be the first time in IRONMAN history that a single location will host three major IRONMAN events: IRONMAN, IRONMAN 70.3 and now the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.
"The choice of Mont-Tremblant as the host venue for the 2014 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship was an obvious one given the success of the inaugural IRONMAN events held here in 2012," says Andrew Messick, Chief Executive Officer of IRONMAN. "We are confident that Mont-Tremblant and the province of Québec will be the ideal hosts for the first IRONMAN World Championship event to be held outside of the United States."
This year’s IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship will be held at Lake Las Vegas in Henderson, Nevada on September 8, 2013, and will represent the third and final year in that location. Beginning with Mont Tremblant in 2014, the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship will rotate globally among different regions on an annual basis. Each year, more than 2,000 domestic and international competitors earn the right to compete in the World Championship by qualifying at an IRONMAN 70.3 event.
