Ironman Chattanooga
Description Dubbed the Scenic City, outdoorsy Chattanooga offers a course nestled against the towering Cumberland Plateau and the Tennessee River. The 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 point to point, 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 two-loops of a 56-mile course (112 miles) 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. According to Chattanooga mayor Andy Berke, the city is already home to a thriving athletic community. "Chattanooga was a natural fit for this event," he says, adding that the race will introduce the city praised by hang-gliding and rock-climbing enthusiasts to a whole new breed of athletes. Berke says he looks forward to seeing how the IRONMAN event grows over the next few years as it builds upon the city's reputation as an outdoor adventure mecca. 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.
