Brasilia has been picked to host the 2015 Ironman 70.3 Latin American Championship on 5 April next year, offering a prize purse of $100,000 along with 35 age-group qualifying slots for Kona.
Britain’s Tim Don and Australia’s Mirinda Carfrae won this year’s event, with more than 1,100 athletes racing around Brazil’s capital city which features a stunning mix of modernist buildings thanks to the input of groundbreaking architect Oscar Niemeyer.
The rectangle-shaped swim will take place in the calm waters of Lake Paranoá, a three-lap scenic bike course will take athletes through Embassies Access Road and across the famous Juscelino Kubitschek Bridge, and the three-lap run goes along the shore of Lake Paranoá.
