IRONMAN Lake Tahoe 2013

IRONMAN slots generally sell out, as Lake Tahoe 2013 did in 19 hours.

General entries are sold out! But are you really that surprised?

Ten days ago the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association announced it will host the first full-distance IRONMAN® event in California since 2001, scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013. Registration opened Monday, June 18 at noon PST and filled in just 19 hours!

We can understand the demand for the first full-distance IRONMAN event in California in over 10 years.

IRONMAN Lake Tahoe will start with a two-loop, 2.4-mile swim in the pristine waters of Kings Beach, California. Athletes will enjoy a lakeside transition before starting a two-loop 112-mile bike course that is challenging and comparable in difficulty to the bike routes at IRONMAN Lake Placid, IRONMAN Canada and IRONMAN Wisconsin. Cyclists will travel along the lake into Tahoe City before following the Truckee River past Squaw Valley and into Historic Downtown Truckee.

From there, the course turns south back toward Lake Tahoe, has a short loop in Martis Camp, continues past Northstar California and climbs to Brockway Summit. After a decent back down to Kings Beach, athletes will complete a second loop, and then a final, flat 17 miles to finish the bike course at Squaw Valley. Definitely a gorgeous loop, but not for the faint of heart!

With a transition to the running portion at The Village at Squaw Valley, runners will proceed along the Truckee River bike path into Tahoe City, and continue south along the shores of Lake Tahoe to a turnaround in Homewood, California. The flat course traverses one of the most scenic lake vistas in the world before finishing back at the heart of the Village at Squaw Valley.

IRONMAN Lake Tahoe will bring approximately 2, 500 athletes to the region, and is also a multi-year contract for the Tahoe region.

Are you an IRONMAN? If so, does Lake Tahoe sound like an appealing course?
