In this Ironman 70.3, athletes will start their day swimming with the current and should anticipate record breaking times as they venture 1.2 miles in a point-to-point swim in the Savannah River. Located at the Augusta Rowing Complex, athletes will then enter transition and prepare to start their single-loop 56-mile bike ride throughout Georgia and into the countryside of South Carolina. Following this the athletes would continue on a 13.1-mile, two-loop run throughout downtown Augusta. Participants will conclude their day with a strong finish on Broad Street, adjacent to Augusta Commons.
