This Sunday American Meredith Kessler will look to defend her Ironman 70.3 Raleigh title, while there will be a new champion on the men’s side. The athletes will take on a 1.2-mile swim in Jordan Lake, then transition to a 56-mile point-to-point bike ride through rural Chatham and Wake Counties before entering downtown Raleigh for T2 and the 13.1-mile run. They’ll also likely deal with some tough conditions with weather forecasts calling for an 80% chance of precipitation and thunder storms. The professionals will be competing for their share of the $50,000 prize purse and the valuable points toward Ironman 70.3 and Ironman World Championship qualification. On the age-group side, athletes will be vying for one of 30 spots to September’s Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.
