* Prior to the start of the IRONMAN Maryland triathlon, part of the VinFast IRONMAN North America Series, IRONMAN and the local officials made the decision to shorten the swim course to 918 meters (0.57 miles), due to the water conditions in the Choptank River caused by the wind and tide in the region.
 
The 2023 IRONMAN Maryland race, part of the VinFast IRONMAN North America Series led athletes along a swim, bike, and run through Cambridge and the surrounding areas. The swim took place in the Choptank River beginning at Gerry Boyle Park at Great Marsh. Once out of the water, athletes took off onto the 112-mile bike, a two-loop course that winds through Dorchester County and into the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Closing out their IRONMAN journey, athletes ran 26.2-miles their way around the region and through downtown Cambridge with an energetic finish at the historic Long Wharf Park at Great Marsh. The 2023 IRONMAN Maryland race, part of the VinFast IRONMAN North America Series offered age-group qualifying slots to the 2024 VinFast IRONMAN World Championship with the women’s race taking place on September 22 in Nice, France and the men’s race taking place on October 26, 2024, in Kailua-Kona, Hawai`i.
 
Looking froward 
Following an announcement made on Wednesday, IRONMAN and the Dorchester County Department of Tourism, in conjunction with the County Council of Dorchester County, Commissioners of Cambridge, and Sheriff of Dorchester County, agreed to a five-year agreement to keep the IRONMAN Maryland triathlon and the IRONMAN 70.3® Eagleman triathlon in Dorchester County through 2028. IRONMAN will return to Cambridge on September 21, 2024. General registration for the 2024 event will open on October 3, 2024, and can be accessed by visiting www.ironman.com/im-maryland.*
