On Sunday, Sept. 10, just over 2,400 men competed on day two of the Ironman 70.3 World Championship. (In a race-first, the women competed in their own race on Saturday.) While professionals like Javier Gomez (1st), Ben Kanute (2nd) and Tim Don (3rd) were battling out front, age-group men were enjoying the challenging Chattanooga course. The impressive field tackled a 1.2-mile (1.9 km) swim in the Tennessee River, followed by a 56-mile (90 km) bike ride through Lookout Mountain and into downtown Chattanooga, capped with a 13.1-mile (21 km) run along the Tennessee Riverwalk and Riverfront Parkway, finishing at Ross’s landing. In order to qualify for the 2017 Icy Hot Ironman 70.3 World Championship, more than 185,000 age-group athletes competed to earn slots at over 100 Ironman 70.3 events held worldwide.
