The 70.3 Belgium course
The race will take place in the northwest Belgium municipality of Knokke-Heist. This area provides a stunning backdrop for the race, which will roll past beaches, dunes, mudflats and salt marshes, as well as luxurious hotels, great restaurants and art galleries. With an ocean swim and flat bike and run courses, we’re certain to see some super-fast times.
70.3 Belgium livestream: Who to watch
After a DNF at last weekend’s Ironman World Championship in Nice, Belgium’s Pieter Heemeryck will be looking for redemption at 70.3 Belgium. He’ll be joined in the men’s race by fellow countrymen Kenneth Vandendriessche, Bruno Slegers, and more. But lest you think a Belgium podium is in the bag: Kyle Smith of New Zealand, Patrick Nilsson of Sweden, and Jesse Vondracek of the USA are also on the start list, which should make this a dynamic day of racing.
The women’s field is just as exciting, with Lucy Hall (GBR) writing her own redemption story after a DNF at 70.3 Worlds in Finland. She’ll be toeing the start line with some talented women hungry for a spot on the podium, including France’s Genet Manon, Nina Derron of Switzerland, and Belgium’s very own Katrien Verstuyft.
