Tri Alliance was invited to the official launch of Ironman Melbourne last week and what an exciting time ahead it is for triathlon!
The atmosphere at the launch was amazing and listening to the heads of the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) explain how Ironman Melbourne was born and how they plan to deliver the event is exciting.
The course will feature a 3.8 kilometre swim in Frankston, a 180 kilometre bike ride on the EastLink Tollway, and a 42.2 kilometre run along Port Philip Bay towards the finish at the St Kilda Sea Baths. And for those keen on heading to Kona – there will be 75 Kona qualifiying slots up for grab!

Ironman Melbourne is going to create a fantastic vibe for Ironman and Triathlon in Melbourne and Tri Alliance is excited to be a part of this great sport.
Entries open August 28 – lock that one in your diary if you are keen to give Ironman Melbourne a go!
