Based on the updated mandate from the Village of Lake Placid and Township of North Elba in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 IRONMAN 70.3 Lake Placid triathlon cannot take place on September 13, 2020.
Sunday, September 13, 2020
IRONMAN 70.3 Lake Placid will lead athletes through a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike, and 13.1-mile run on the same course as IRONMAN Lake Placid. Athletes begin with a swim in clear Mirror Lake, with the famous sight line at the bottom of the lake to guide them. Next, athletes transition to bikes at the Olympic Speed Skating Oval — the views of the rolling mountains provide a scenic backdrop to the ride. The one-loop, 56-mile course brings competitors back to the Oval, where they begin their 13.1-mile run through town and around the lake.
