IRONSTAR INDOOR TRIATHLON – RACE 2 and 3
Saturday, June 23 and Saturday, July 21
Endurance sports lovers can get back in the groove with Ironstar Indoor Triathlon Series’ second race of the season.
With five races across five summer months, the series aims to keep triathletes active during a time of the year when the heat takes away the option for outdoor activities.
By holding their triathlons indoors, Ironstar are giving athletes plenty of reason to keep swimming, running and biking during the summer.
The third race takes place on July 21.
TIME: From 1pm
