The first IRONMAN event to be held in Slovenia in September

Ironman races are considered to be one of the most difficult one-day sporting event in the world and hosting it in Slovenia, the land of wonderful nature with big heart for sports and healthy living seems like natural choice.

I FEEL SLOVENIA IRONMAN 70.3 Slovenian Istria triathlon will start at the sea, with 1.9 km (1.2 miles) spectator-friendly swim course. Next is a 90.1 km (56 miles) bike course leading through two countries – Slovenia and Italy – through the old town of Koper, Ankaran and Milje / Muggia along the coast and then return over more hilly hinterland passing some picturesque old villages with magnificent view over well-known Slovenian tourist destinations, Koper, Izola and Piran. Last part of the race is a two-lap run course of 21.1 km (13.1 miles) between Koper and Izola along the coast.

The race is a great opportunity to present the country as a perfect tourism destination boasting diverse nature and a range of possibilities for outdoor and indoor activities. Four beautiful coastal cities, Koper, Izola, Piran and Ankaran, will host athletes and their supporters, offering a distinct Mediterranean experience each with their own unique attractions and charms.
