Introducing IRONMAN 70.3 Washington Tri-Cities, a landmark late-season event in the heart of Washington wine country, where the wine flows like water and the sun never stops shining. Boasting more than 200 wineries within 50 miles, this region of Washington is well known for its award-winning wines. Beyond the vine, Tri-Cities is truly an outdoor recreation mecca, thanks to its endless network of waterways, miles of hiking trails, and 300+ days of sunshine. Nestled at the confluence of the Snake, Yakima, and Columbia Rivers, Tri-Cities is within easy driving distance of Spokane, Seattle, and Portland. The inaugural IRONMAN 70.3 Washington Tri-Cities offers easy race logistics and a centralized venue. On race day, you will take on a 1.2-mile downriver swim in the iconic Columbia River, a 56-mile rolling bike through scenic wine country, and a flat, 13.1-run through parks and on paved trails, finishing at a festive finish line at Columbia Point Park. Go with the flow in Tri-Cities, Washington, the perfect backdrop for your end-of-summer race-cation.
