We are very excited to welcome the IRONMAN Triathlon back to Penticton, BC.

In 1983, the first North American IRONMAN was born, and that race changed the IRONMAN triathlon community forever. Penticton, British Columbia is known as one of the world’s premier triathlon host communities, and a bucket list destination for Subaru IRONMAN athletes all over the world. The iconic course, stunning landscapes, and the welcoming host community of Penticton, British Columbia are all back as this legendary race makes its triumphant return home.

The event is expected to bring roughly 10,000 people, so be sure to book your accommodation in advance.
