The 2022/23 Victorian State Series continues Sunday 13 November, with GWM IRONMAN 70.3 Melbourne to host the Victorian Long Course Championships.
The second event on the series calendar see double points on offer for both individual and club awards, as well as another early-season opportunity to secure a State Championship title.
The 1.9km swim, 90km bike, and 21.1km run takes place at the iconic beachside location, with the race village in the beautiful Catani Gardens in St Kilda, expansive views of Port Phillip Bay, palm tree-lined boardwalks, all within a few kilometres of the CBD.
The IRONMAN Group Oceania Regional Director, Carl Smith says it’s exciting to know Long Course Champions will be crowned in St Kilda.
“GWM IRONMAN 70.3 Melbourne has quickly built a reputation as a big-city race with high levels of competition. What better venue or racecourse to showcase the fastest athletes vying out for the Victorian Long-Course titles than at this event,” Smith said.
“Having a strong level of local participation is the key foundation to building a great community of athletes at our events. Age group athletes are the lifeblood of what we do, and nothing typifies this more than the tribal, competitive passion brought in by the Tri Clubs. We are lucky to have the support of the local tri community and look forward to seeing this on full show again on November 13th”.
The Victorian Long Course Championships were originally scheduled to be hosted at Challenge Shepparton on 22nd January 2023, however due to the event being financially unviable with the projected level of registrations the team at Challenge Shepparton made the difficult decision to cancel the event.
