Ironman 70.3 Austin in Austin, TX
Race Type: Triathlon
Distance: 70.3 (Half-Ironman)
Entry Fee: $275
Would have rated 5 but the conditions were really rough this year. Race was well supported though and had many improvements from 2014. There was an aid station at the swim for racers in later waves, a coffee tent, all dangerous areas on the course were well marked.
See above. Course was challenging due to weather conditions and rain.
High 40’s in the morning and around 60’s towards afternoon. Initially overcast and then sunny.
Was the weather normal? Yes
