Giant Lineup at Galveston 70.3 Texas

Thursday 04 April 2019
This early spring race is characterized by humid, windy conditions, though at this time of year, the scorching Texas heat is less of a factor. The surrounding area offers attractions for families, including the famous Moody Gardens with its pink, blue, and white glass pyramids housing a 10-story rainforest, and one of the world’s largest aquariums. If hot temperatures do make an appearance, the Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark is a popular option. Stay an extra day and walk along the The Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, explore one of the many museums, take a fishing trip, or peruse the shops along the Strand historic district.

Athletes begin their day with a 1.2-mile, one-loop saltwater swim in Offats Bayou, staged at Moody Gardens' Palm Beach Hotel. The 56-mile bike course takes cyclists on a one-loop ride along the Texas Gulf Coast, known for its gusty winds. The 13.1-mile, three-loop run is fast and flat, taking athletes through Moody Gardens and along Offats Bayou. The finish is next to the majestic Colonel Paddlewheel Boat. "The course is pretty forgiving and makes the perfect early season race," says race director Scott Langen. "Many use it as a barometer to gauge their fitness leading into IRONMAN Texas."

The 2019 IRONMAN 70.3 Texas will offer 40 qualifying slots to the 2019 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nice, France.

Professionals compete for $30,000 prize purse plus W/C Slots.
