Swim in Preston Links, cycle through the Lothians, and sprint to the finish line in Edinburgh’s spectacular Holyrood Park.
The Edinburgh 70.3 begins with a 1.2 mile swim at Preston Links before athletes will head eastwards from Cockenzie on a 56 mile one loop bike course, heading inland through rolling arable farmland via Haddington, Pencaitland and onto East Saltoun. From here an out and back undulating loop incorporates the historic and beautiful estate village of Gifford, a key spectator hot spot, which entails the most technical part of the course on a route that hugs the hills of the Lammermuirs. After transitioning, athletes are lead around a beautiful multi-lap, 13.1 mile run within Holyrood Park before crossing the finish line.
IRONMAN 70.3 Edinburgh offers 50 qualifying slots for the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.
