Coach BK of BK Coaching and Ironman Triathlete Nelson Rodriguez chat about Ironman Arizona. This is an excellent race as a first time ironman race and to the newer to triathlon athletes.

KEY POINTS

Swim:

  • Self seeding rolling start in Temp Town Lake which looks like a canal.
  • Athletes enter the water off a metal type dock
  • The water temp is usually cooler with sleeveless wetsuits being just fine

Bike:

  • 3 loop course with 2577 ft of gain
  • Wind can pick up later in the day and turn into a head wind
  • Roads are great and the support is excellent

Run:

  • 2 loop course that is flat
  • Just about the entire course is on pavement, which is very unforgiving
  • The run has zero shake so make sure to understand how to protect yourself from the sun and heat
