Ironman 70.3 Superfrog Comes to Imperial Beach Weekend of September 14th

IRONMAN 70.3 SUPERFROG Imperial Beach, California

Part of triathlon's rich Navy SEAL history, a spectacular race set in one of the hotbeds of the sport.

IRONMAN 70.3 SUPERFROG serves as a charity fundraising race: $35 of each general entry will be a tax-deductible donation to the IRONMAN Foundation. The donation portion of this entry will be used to support military and local charities including: the Navy SEAL Foundation, the Optimists Club of Coronado and the Islander Sports Foundation.

The original and longest running half-distance race, the SUPERFROG Triathlon was founded in 1979. The challenging course was designed by a group of Navy SEALSs stationed at the US Navy SEALs center in Coronado to both prepare them for the IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii and to enhance their training.

The race will moved to Imperial Beach in 2016, just a few miles from its original spot, where it will begin with a two-loop 1.2-mile swim in the open Pacific Ocean. Athletes will then embark on a four-loop, 56-mile bike course that travels along the beach community of Imperial Beach and scenic Highway 75. The course is flat and spectator-friendly along with beautiful ocean views. 

The four-loop, 13.1-mile run reflects the beach running that SEALs do in training. Over half the course will include sand with aid stations along the way and at the southern point, a view of the Tijuana Hills. An energetic finish line awaits athletes as they round the iconic "Imperial Beach" sculptor to finish on the beginning of the pier.
