Australia’s oldest IRONMAN event celebrates 35 years and will return to the stunning town of Port Macquarie on 3 May 2020.

This superb course offers a unique challenge set along Port Macquarie’s spectacular waterfront and throughout the scenic coastal region. Swim the calm protected waters of Hastings river, ride along the Pacific ocean, and run in the heart of Port Macquarie – a course renowned for its energetic sideline support from the local community.

In 2020, the Oceania TriClub Championship continues the truly regional TriClub rivalry that Port Macquarie is so famous for.

Taking place concurrently with IRONMAN 70.3 Port Macquarie, IRONMAN Australia is sure to inspire you with its natural beauty and strong community support.
