Nearly 1,300 athletes representing 21 countries and 37 states started the 2015 Subaru IRONMAN® Muskoka triathlon, which consisted of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike and 26.2-mile run in the scenic surroundings provided by the city of Huntsville. Competitors ranged in age from 18 to 75.
One of more than 40 events in the global IRONMAN® Series, the single-loop swim took place in the clean, crisp waters of Peninsula Lake, while the two-loop bike course led athletes along challenging but scenic routes and through three small and charming Muskoka communities. Athletes then enjoyed a two-loop run course winding past Fairy Lake and through historic downtown Huntsville before returning back to Deerhurst Resort for a spectacular finish. The event offered 50 coveted age-group qualifying slots to the 2016 IRONMAN World Championship, taking place on Oct. 8 in Kailua-Kona, Hawai`i.
