Ironman 70.3 UK Exmoor
Held in Exmoor National Park, one of the most picturesque areas of England, Wimbleball Lake has been host to IRONMAN 70.3 UK since 2006. With many athletes choosing to camp on site, it has a unique atmosphere. The reputation of the event has been set by its rural location and the challenges of the bike course.
The swim course is one lap, clockwise, starting 20m from the shore. The IRONMAN 70.3 UK Exmoor bike course is a tough two lap course right in the heart of Exmoor National Park. The course leaves Wimbleball lake and follows an anti clockwise loop through hilly terrain in a picturesque part of Somerset. The run at Wimbleball Lake is a three loop course on a mix of terrain including tarmac, hard pack trail and grass. The course remains firm underfoot even during prolonged bad weather. There is one short sharp climb in the course which is tackled three times.
There will be 35 qualifying slots available for the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.
Event Location: Wimbleball, Devon
