Inaugural IRONMAN Chattanooga, September 28, 2014.
Chattanooga is known as the Scenic City with a vibrant Downtown full of attractions, fine dining and great places to stay. The Tennessee River runs through the middle of the city where the Swim/Bike transition point will take place on Chattanooga's $110 Million 21st Century Waterfront. Four bridges cross the river over the swim and a pedestrian RiverWalk runs along the whole swim course making for an ideal place to watch the race.
Chattanooga is centrally located in the Southeast with I-75, I-24 and I-59 all connecting in Chattanooga making for easy access. Explore Chattanoogafun.com to see why millions choose to bring their families for vacation every year to what Outside Magaine calls the "Best Town Ever" and New York Times lists as one of the "Top 45 Places to Go" in the world.
The newly announced site of the eleventh race in the IRONMAN U.S. Series, Chattanooga, Tennessee will lure athletes with its dramatic scenery, idyllic weather and low-key southern charm.
IRONMAN Chattanooga will begin with a single-loop, 2.4-mile swim in the Tennessee River with ample spectator vantage points alongside the city's famous Riverwalk. Athletes can look forward to a fast, down-current swim. The bike will be a two-loop, 56-mile course with scenic farmland and mountain views. The two-and-a-half loop 26.2-mile run course will showcase beautiful downtown Chattanooga, the South Side, Riverview and the North Shore. Overall, expect a fast, rolling course.
IRONMAN Chattanooga will have a $25,000 USD professional prize purse and will be a P-2000 race. The race will offer 50 age group slots to the 2015 IRONMAN World Championship taking place on Oct. 10, 2015 in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
