Pittsboro, NC - The IRONMAN 70.3 sports competition event returns to the Triangle on Sunday, May 31, 2015, with the two of the three events, swimming and biking, in Chatham County. This means that roadways near Jordan Lake and southeastern Chatham could be impacted from early morning until about 1 pm.
“The event does bring a large number of visitors to Chatham County who can become repeat visitors, all with potential to spend money on food and lodging,” said Neha Shah, director of the Pittsboro-Siler City Convention & Visitors Bureau (countywide). “We also get national publicity for Chatham as a desirable location to visit.”
Athletes will begin their day at Vista Point on Jordan Lake with a 1.2-mile swim. The 56-mile bike course will take athletes through rural Chatham and Wake Counties before entering downtown Raleigh to transition to the run.
The main roads impacted will be in and around Vista Point on Jordan Lake early in the morning until around 10 am. Then the biking portion of the race will start from Vista Point to North Pea Ridge to US 64 to Beaver Creek Road, heading south to New Elam Church Road to Old US 1 and into Wake County for the rest of the race.
To view more information on the event, including maps of each portion, visit the IronMan website.
