Time is running out for budding athletes who are considering taking up the challenge of IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire on Sunday 18th June.

With 92% of entries now taken, there are only a limited number of spaces left for the 3rd annual IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire, which will see competitors complete a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile half marathon, either as an individual or in a relay team.

As in previous years, the event will start at Chasewater and pass through Cannock Chase, before culminating at Shugborough for the last time, before the run element and iconic finishing line moves to a new home in 2018.

Kevin Stewart, Managing Director IRONMAN UK & Ireland, said: “We have had very positive feedback from athletes about their experience in Staffordshire and are looking forward to welcoming new and old timers to our first race of the season.  Taking place in the heart of the country, the event offers easy access combined with our flattest bike course on offer on the UK’s calendar!’ 

“Places are limited in what is always a sell-out event, so we would encourage anyone wanting to take on the IRONMAN challenge to sign up as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”

Entries are available either as an individual or in a team relay.

IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire will also be hosting an IRONKIDS run event for kids aged 3 – 14 with details and online entry available here.
