IRONMAN 70.3 Weymouth 2020 postponed

If you had been gearing up for IRONMAN 70.3, sadly you are going to be disappointed.

Ironman-Run-Podium-Weymouth-12

The Weymouth triathlon originally scheduled for Sunday 20 September has been cancelled but will return in September 2021.

In a meeting earlier this week, Dorset’s multi-agency Safety Advisory Group was satisfied that IRONMAN’s proposed health and safety measures were well thought through and participants, staff and the wider public would have been sufficiently protected from potential COVID-19 infection.

However, following discussions at both Dorset Council and Weymouth Town Council on Wednesday, councillors requested that IRONMAN reschedule the race to 2021, citing local community concerns around such a large event taking place during the pandemic and their feeling that the timing just isn’t right at the moment.

Athletes that are registered for the event are receiving an email with further details.
