Annual IRONMAN 70.3 Competition

Haines City is host to the annual IRONMAN Competition.

IRONMAN 70.3 Florida is a popular early-season race for first-timers or seasoned pros. Expect a beach start, glassy freshwater lake swim, moderately hilly bike course past orange groves and through downtown, and an energetic three-loop run.
