Stage set for Nice, France, and 2019 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship


On September 7-8, 2019, the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship returns to Europe for the first time since 2015. More than 5,500 professional and age-group athletes from over 100 countries, regions, and territories will descend upon Nice, France for this year’s rotating world championship.

Among them will be 115 of the world’s top triathletes who will battle for piece of the US$250,000 total professional prize purse and the world’s most coveted IRONMAN 70.3 title – World Champion.

“We are excited to return to Europe and watch the world’s top talent come together in Nice,” said Andrew Messick, President and Chief Executive Officer for IRONMAN. “Nice is an extraordinary location for a world-class professional field to put their talent on display and we look forward to an exciting two-day World Championship event.”

The start of the 1.9 kilometre (1.2 mile) Roka Swim Course takes place on the Quai des Etats-Unis as athletes begin their swim in La baie des Anges. Next, the 91.3 kilometre (56.7 mile) single-loop Ventum Bike Course leads athletes to the mountains surrounding Nice, including Col de Vence.

Most notably there is a 9 kilometre (5.6 mile) climb at an average incline of 6.6% to reach 962m (3,156 feet) above sea level. The 21.2 kilometre (13.1 mile) HOKA ONE ONE Run Course will take athletes on two loops along the world-famous Promenade des Anglais where the finish line is located.

Since 2014, the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship has been rotating among premier cities around the globe following its early years in Clearwater, Florida (2006-2010) and Henderson, Neveda (2011-2013).

The IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship has since included picturesque locations such as:

The 2020 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship will be held on November 28-29 in Taupō, New Zealand. The 2021 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship will return to American soil with St. George, Utah playing host.
