The 2015 Ironman Louisville triathlon presented by Norton Sports Health will move from August to Oct. 11 in 2015—promising to provide athletes with cooler race temperatures in the fall.

“The date shift of Ironman Louisville will provide athletes with more comfortable air and water temperatures—improving race conditions and the overall athlete experience. We look forward to continuing to work with the incredible people of Louisville to deliver this first-class event,” said Andrew Messick, Chief Executive Officer of Ironman.
