2017 IRONMAN Santa Rosa
The 2017 IRONMAN Santa Rosa triathlon expects to welcome more than 2,500 athletes and thousands of spectators to the area. The course includes a 2.4-mile swim in the clear waters of Lake Sonoma while the 112-mile bike course takes advantage of many of the same roads as the traditional IRONMAN Vineman course, bringing athletes through Sonoma County wine country. The 26.2-mile run provides athletes with a mostly shaded course, utilizing the City of Santa Rosa Creek Trail system. The 2017 IRONMAN Santa Rosa triathlon will offer 40 qualifying slots to the 2017 IRONMAN World Championship taking place in Kailua-Kona, Hawai`i. Athletes registered for the 2017 IRONMAN Vineman will remain registered for the newly located 2017 IRONMAN Santa Rosa triathlon.
In 2018, the race dates will bring calendar shifts for these two events. The 2018 IRONMAN Santa Rosa triathlon will move to May 12 in order to provide North American athletes an opportunity to race IRONMAN earlier in the season. The 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 Santa Rosa triathlon will take place July 28.
