“A new place to race. The beautiful city of Hobart will provide a playing field like no other on Feb. 5 2023, including Oceania’s first-ever completely indoor transition right next to the historic sandstone buildings of Salamanca.” Ironman just announced a new race in Australia: Ironman 70.3 Tasmania.

The whole race venue will be located in the city center of Hobart, Tasmania. “The swim start is from one of the famous piers into the cool, calm waters of the River Derwent, followed by a testing bike course delivering the most vertical gain of any Ironman 70.3 race in Oceania”, Ironman stated in a press release. “The run heads through the historic ports and out towards Cornelian Bay, before returning to that famous red carpet and the finish line of Ironman 70.3 Tasmania.”

Race registration will be open from Mar. 31 2022, 1 PM NZT (1 AM CET).
