Ironman Miami 70.3 Recap

What can I say?  It sucked.

I managed to finish in 7:36.

Most athletes I talked with were unhappy with the race organization – transition for bike checkin opened 3 hours late, packet pickup was a joke, people were pushed off the dock into the water, aid stations were missing or lacking severely, and on and on.

I won’t do this race next year.  Maybe nobody will – the website isn’t even up today.

Update:  The World Triathlon Corporation aka Ironman, has said it will take over production of this even next year.  This year’s race was organized by Paramount Productions.  It is also going to allow all participants of this year’s Rohto Ironman Miami 70.3 the chance to register for a 70.3 race next year, free of charge.


I live in Orlando, Florida and participate in marathons and triathlons.
