Decided your A-race this summer? This could be a contender for all you middle distance athletes: the new Ironman 70.3 Durban.


The race will start on 2 August with a 1.9km swim off the city’s world-famous surfing beaches, followed by a 90.1km bike which takes athletes past the iconic Moses Mabhida stadium which was built for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The race will finish with a 21.1km run along Durban’s Golden Mile.
