The swim course will take place in the clean, shallow waters of Alta Lake at Rainbow Park - just a short drive from Whistler Village. It will be a rolling start, and all swim buoys must be kept on the left. Athletes will not be required to exit the water to begin their second loop. The water temperature ranges between 18 and 22 degrees Celsius throughout the summer months. Expect a comfortable wetsuit-legal swim.
The new Subaru IRONMAN 70.3 Canada single-loop bike course will bring athletes to the 2010 Winter Olympic ski jumping and Nordic venue. The nature of the new course routes will allow spectators to cheer and support the athletes seven times (three times for the Subaru IRONMAN 70.3 Canada) throughout the bike portion of the race.
The one-loop, 21.1 km (13.1 mi) run course follows the meandering Valley Trail past Lost Lake and famous Green Lake. Spectators are able to reinvigorate athletes as they return through Whistler Village before finishing adjacent to Whistler Olympic Plaza on Blackcomb Way.
