Ironman - The Ultimate Coeur d'Alene

Turley, Angela - Friday, June 22, 2012

Good luck to Ed, Ashley, Doug, Kim and Brian - have a great race!

Every year about 2,400 athletes from around the world make their way to the Northwest state of Idaho to test themselves on this demanding course. The two-loop swim takes place in picturesque Lake Coeur d’Alene, starting and finishing on the sandy beaches of City Park. The double-looped bike course works its way through Coeur d’Alene and the neighbouring communities to the north. It is deceivingly challenging and makes participants suffer if they haven’t paced themselves on the first loop.
The run course is considered flat and fast, but some false flats sprinkled throughout the two-loop run can play havoc both mentally and physically during the marathon.
