Ironman 70.3 Dubai is not for the fickle-minded, it is for the staunch, the stubborn, the determined, and the tenacious sportsman, who has the grit and strength to brave through the many challenges before him. The event will open on a bright sunny morning, bathed in the glow of the stunning Burj Al Arab.
The athletes will begin their day hitting the waters first, with a 1.9km swim, a swim course that begins from Jumeira Public Beach. The swim course will be followed by a 90km bike ride. The adventurous ride will take the athletes off from the city all the way to the mysterious endless sands of the desert.
The athletes then head for a 21.1km run (that is if they manage to come out of the previous two sessions with all their limbs in place) through the recently completed running trail along Jumeira Beach with spectators and enthusiasts cheering and applauding. The triathlon will see a picture-perfect finish as the never-giving-up athletes come out through it in flying colours.
