The pre-race festivities for the 2018 Isuzu Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa are in full swing! Athletes got to try the swim course at Kings Beach or participate (or spectate!) in the Ndlovu 5K Fun Run. Other festivities included the parade of nations, pro press conference, and the IronKids Fun Run. The women take to the course on Saturday, Sept. 1, with the men following on Sunday, Sept. 2.
