One of more than 110 events in the global IRONMAN 70.3 Series, the event took athletes on a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike and 13.1-mile run through some of the most scenic landscape that Indiana has to offer.

Athletes began with a 1.2-mile swim in the calm waters of Prairie Creek Reservoir. The 56-mile bike course then took athletes onto closed state highways for a fast out-and-back ride through rural Indiana. The race concluded with a challenging run around the south side of Prairie Creek Reservoir over rolling country roads before returning to the reservoir for the finish.
