IRONMAN has announced that the 2022 IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championship will be held in Taupō, New Zealand on December 10-11, 2022.
Initially, Taupō was set to host the 2020 edition of the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship on November 28-29. However, the COVID-19 pandemic waylaid plans, leading to the unfortunate cancellation.
“Taupō is an iconic IRONMAN destination and we look forward to having the best triathletes in the world head to New Zealand for what will be a week-long celebration of triathlon.” said Andrew Messick, President & CEO of The IRONMAN Group.
The 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship will see athletes take to the beautiful waters of Lake Taupō for the 1.9km swim leg, before a single-loop 90km bike course and a final 21km run course that winds its way around the waterfront.
With the cancellation of the 2020 edition of the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship, St. George, Utah, USA becomes the next stop for the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship on September 17-18, 2021, before heading to New Zealand in December of 2022.
