Athletes Battle Wet Conditions on a Breathtaking Course at 2019 Ironman Haugesund

Age-group competitors battled a rainy day at Ironman and 70.3 Haugesund in Norway.

While athletes were battling the heat wave at both Ironman France and the Ironman European Championships in Frankfurt over the weekend, age-group competitors battled a rainy day at Ironman and 70.3 Haugesund in Norway.

The course offers one of the best opportunities to compete in the raw and wild nature, with fjords and mountains providing a stunning backdrop for triathlon. Athletes took on a 2.4-mile swim in the lake Skeisvatnet, rode a two-lap 112-mile bike ride up, down, and around the breathtaking scenery, and then finished off with a four-lap marathon through an excited crowd.
