Taking place in the city that “never stops” required the 2019 Ironman 70.3 Sáo Paulo triathlon to start at 5 a.m. to account for traffic restrictions. The race began with a 1.2-mile swim in the Rowing Lane of São Paulo University. From there, athletes took on a flat two-loop 56-mile bike course through the largest and widest avenue of São Paulo along the Pinheiros River. Athletes finished the race with a three-loop run through the campus of São Paulo University.
