In November, the world's greatest athletes will come to Clearwater to determine the best of the best. More than 1,800 domestic and international competitors will meet in Clearwater to compete in the Ford Ironman World Championship 70.3 on Nov. 11, 2006 and you can be a part of the action. Several thousand volunteers will be needed throughout the week leading up to the event and the day of the race to help Clearwater host this prestigious competition. Volunteers will be able to sign-up for various tasks including greeting athletes, race officials, goody bag assemblers, body markers or wetsuit peelers.
The series showcases half the distance of the signature Ironman championship event that takes place in Kona, Hawaii each year. The inaugural event, which will bring an estimated $10 million to the city, will start and finish at Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach. Triathletes will swim 1.2-miles in the Gulf of Mexico, bike 56 miles throughout Clearwater and surrounding communities, and run 13.1-miles from the beach, across the Memorial Causeway Bridge, and into downtown. This race is the culmination of 17 qualifying Ironman triathlons of the 70.3-distance held around the world.
