Ironman 70.3 Racine

Athletes will take a point-to-point 1.2-mile swim along Lake Michigan's North Beach. North Beach Park is open for practice during the season, weather permitting. Water temperature is typically less than 78F. The bike is an exciting 56-mile course through the scenic countryside of Racine County. This is a mostly rolling course with some steeper hills mixed in to challenge athletes. The 13.1, double out-and-back course features a tour of the Racine Zoo and the beautiful Lake Michigan coastline as athletes make their way toward the Racine Lighthouse to the turnaround at Shoop Park. The course is very flat and fast. Originally from: http://www.ironman.com/triathlon/events/ironman-70.3/racine.aspx#ixzz2JVOIfTg6
