A marquee event for this lakeside playground, IRONMAN Coeur d’Alene vies for “most breathtaking scenery” on the IRONMAN circuit.
Taking place in the pristine heart of one of Idaho’s prettiest areas, this early-summer race has filled quickly for the past nine years. Coeur d’Alene is a classic resort and vacation destination offering a wide range of recreational activities. The glacier-fed lake, surrounding forests and parks, the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes and the Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course’s floating green are just a few examples.
Athletes begin their day with a two-loop, 2.4 swim in the clear waters of Lake Coeur d’Alene. The challenging two-loop, 112-mile bike course boasts no turns in an 80-mile stretch. The run loops along the shores of the lake blending the energy of a small town resort atmosphere with a world-class course. The single transition area and multiple loop course at the “hot corner” make IRONMAN Coeur d’Alene a favorite among athletes and their friends and families.
