IRONMAN 70.3 Cairns

Race in one of the world’s most beautiful locations: Register for the 2014 IRONMAN 70.3 Cairns

Take on the challenge of the IRONMAN 70.3 Cairns, an unforgettable race that takes you from reef to rainforest to boardwalk, taking place on June 8, 2014

This half-ironman event takes you along the same course as the iconic full-length Cairns Airport IRONMAN Cairns. Swim in the warm tropical waters of Far North Queensland, ride along the breathtaking, World Heritage-listed Captain Cook Highway, and run down the vibrant Cairns boardwalk before finishing right in the heart of the city. With your blood pumping, your mind clear and your body pushing itself to the limit, it’s one exhilarating way to experience one of the most spectacular tropical locations in the world.

The event offers 25 qualifying slots for the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada.
