While triathlon is one of the greatest sports on the planet (OK, we’re a little a biased), it is notorious for not providing great opportunities for fans to follow along. Thankfully, that is changing! The ITU continues to offer its top-notch coverage, the new Super League Triathlon has an awesome livestream (though the time changes are admittedly tough for those of us in the U.S.), Major League Triathlon has made top-notch coverage a priority, and now Ironman’s partnership with Facebook is bringing several events to your living room.

The 17 events covered this season will come from 11 different countries and four continents. Getting the most coverage will again be the Ironman World Championship (set for Oct. 12). Last year’s Kona race included more than 20 hours of comprehensive live race day coverage, with everything from the early morning body marking to the final hour finish line celebration.
