IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan 2017 offers a $15,000 USD professional prize purse and 30 qualifying age group slots for the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship of South Africa.

Centered at Lagoi Bay, a stunning resort with swathes of white-sand beaches, lagoons, comprehensive facilities, and first class hotels, the course for IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan will take athletes on a spectacular journey around Bintan Island. The event will begin with a swim in pool-like conditions and water so clear the ocean floor is visible. A scenic one-lap bike course on smooth, wide roads will follow, with a spectator-friendly two-lap run course topping off this spectacular event.

Naturally still and calm, the serenity of the waters on the race morning will be disturbed by 1,000 excited swimmers. Voted best swim courses in Asia, the swim is held in a protected bay of the South China Sea. The water conditions are terrific thanks to the excellent visibility with no currents or swell. The water temperature is expected to be around 29 degrees Celsius, so wetsuits are not allowed. Participants must complete 1 lap of a largely square 1.9km swim course, with marker buoys every 50m. The swim will be started off in a multiple wave start, split by category. The swim Start and Finish lines are in close proximity to the transition area and event venue.
