Course for Ironman triathlon released

ROANOKE, Va. – Ironman has announced a new date for its inaugural Carilion Clinic Ironman in the Roanoke Valley.

What was originally scheduled for June 7, 2020, will now be held on June 6, 2021.

All registered athletes of the 2020 Ironman 70.3 Virginia’s Blue Ridge triathlon will be receiving an email with further information.


The Ironman race originally scheduled for June has been postponed.

Due to the stay-at-home order put in place by Gov. Ralph Northam, officials say the race originally scheduled for June 7 will not take place as planned. The stay-at-home order is set to last until June 10.

Below is a portion of the statement from race officials:

“We are working diligently on all potential options and athletes that are registered for the race will receive an email in the coming days with further details. In what has been a continually evolving and challenging time globally, we recognize that this may come as a disappointment but look forward to providing athletes with an exceptional race experience in the future.”
