What is a Half Ironman?

Are you looking for an event that will truly put your fitness to the test? Are you ready to take on not one, but three different endurance disciplines, all in one race? If the answer to these questions is yes, then a half Ironman may well be the event for you!

What disciplines make up a Half Ironman?

A half Ironman, like any triathlon, is a multi-disciplinary event made up of 3 legs from the 3 different endurance sports, with the first leg being swimming, the second cycling and the final leg being running. Events are typically divided into age groups. This means that you will be competing alongside other triathletes who fall into the same band for age and sex as you, with the exception of triathletes who fall into the separate elite category.
