COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho / TAMPA, Fla. (June 23, 2023)/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Following a vote at Tuesday’s City of Coeur d’Alene council meeting, a new three-year host venue agreement was agreed upon between IRONMAN and the North Idaho Sports Commission to host an IRONMAN® 70.3® triathlon in the City of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the North Idaho Sports Commission and the City of Coeur d’Alene,” said Tim Brosious, Northwest Regional Director for The IRONMAN Group. “After twenty years of racing in this beautiful Northern Idaho community, Coeur d’Alene continues to be one of the most exciting destinations and sought after race experiences in our North American race series. We are proud to continue to offer an IRONMAN 70.3 triathlon in this unique and beautiful Northwest community.”
The IRONMAN 70.3 Coeur d’Alene triathlon will consist of a 1.2-mile single-loop swim in the pristine waters of Lake Coeur d’Alene. Athletes will then embark on a 56-mile single-loop bike ride that will take them on a challenging yet scenic ride through the Northern Idaho terrain with sweeping mountain views before a transition at City Park. Athletes will cap off their race with a 13.1-run course through spectator lined streets, energetic neighborhoods, amazing views of Lake Coeur d’Alene, with vibrant finish line experience in downtown Coeur d’Alene on Sherman Ave.
Coeur d’Alene and its neighboring areas are surrounded by dozens of lakes left behind by the glaciers from the ice age. There are more than 55 lakes within easy driving distance of Coeur d’Alene, but none more scenic and full of activities than Lake Coeur d’Alene itself. The perfect place to go on vacation and experience numerous outdoor activities, the area will continue to offer both participants and their families an amazing scenic race destination. With the spectacular North Idaho sunsets and moonrises, the plunge of an osprey after a fish, and the glowing lights of downtown Coeur d’Alene reflecting across Lake Coeur d’Alene waters at night, it is a magical location that will surely please.
General registration will open on July 12, 2023, by visiting www.ironman.com/im703-coeur-dalene. The 2024 IRONMAN 70.3 Coeur d’Alene will offer qualifying slots to the 2024 VinFast IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Taupō, New Zealand.
