Long course racing is heading back to the multisport Mecca that is Boulder, Colorado this weekend, as the 20th edition of IRONMAN 70.3 Boulder gets underway on Saturday, August 6th.
There is a star-studded contingent of professional athletes up in the foothills of the flatirons who will be chasing qualifying spots for the 2022 Intermountain Healthcare IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships in St. George, Utah.
And a quick note that IRONMAN have just announced that 70.3 Boulder will move in the calendar for 2023, shifting to Saturday 10 June.
