We are excited to announce today that the 2019 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship has been awarded to Nice, France. This will be the first time IRONMAN has held a world championship event in France. In addition, IRONMAN announced today that a brand new IRONMAN 70.3 event will be held in Nice during the 2018 season as it leads to the inaugural world championship event and will continue in the region moving forward.
Nice is the capital of the Alpes-Maritimes department on the French Riviera in the southeast coast of France. It first hosted an IRONMAN event in 2005, and has been one of the most popular locations on the IRONMAN race circuit since.
