As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc around the world, it has also clenched its iron claws around the IRONMAN races in Malaysia.

Regrettably, the IRONMAN Malaysia, IRONMAN 70.3 Langkawi in Langkawi, Kedah plus IRONMAN 70.3 Desaru Coast in Desaru, Johor has been cancelled for 2020. Safety has to be first and foremost factor in holding these races for all concerned from the host towns, organisers, athletes and audience.
