Amateur and kids events on offer as Ironman comes to Nice

Ironman event taking place off the coast of Nice

The Ironman Championships are coming to the Riviera next month, and prior to the main event in Nice, there will be plenty of amateur events on offer for the general public to enjoy.

The Men’s edition of the event will take place on 10th September in Nice. The Women’s event will take place in Kona, Hawaii in October. The opposite will be the case in 2024, and this rotation will continue until 2026, it was announced back in January.

For the event, which constitutes a 3.8km swim, a 180km bike ride and a 42km run, the streets of Nice are expected to be filled with spectators, as was the case for the Ironman event that took place earlier this summer.

What’s on offer?

Events will be held in the build-up to the event, as anticipation for the arrival of the World Championship grows. On 3rd September, exactly one week before the main event, a 3.8km swim will be open to all. A Hoka Fun Run along the Promenade des Anglais has also been organised, and will take place on 8th September.

Kids can also get involved through the Ironkids event on 6th September. There are four distances on offer in the Ironkids run: 1.6km, 1.2km, 0.8km and 0.3km.

There are therefore plenty of chances to get active in a family-friendly and fun atmosphere ahead of the much-awaited arrival of the Ironman World Championship.
