70.3 Superfrog

Imperial Beach, California hosts the longest running half-distance race in the world.

IRONMAN 70.3 SUPERFROG serves as a charity fundraising race: $200 of each general entry will be a tax deductible donation to the IRONMAN Foundation. The donation portion of this entry will be used to support military and local charities including: the Navy SEAL Foundation, the Optimists Club of Coronado and the Islander Sports Foundation.

The original and longest running half-distance race, the SUPERFROG Triathlon was founded in 1979. The challenging course was designed by a group of Navy Seals stationed at the US Navy Seals center in Coronado to both prepare them for the IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii and to enhance their training.

For 2016, the race will move to Imperial Beach, just a few miles from its original spot, where it will begin with a two-loop 1.2-mile swim in the open Pacific Ocean. Athletes will then embark on a four-loop, 56-mile bike course that travels along the beach community of Imperial Beach and scenic Highway 75. The course is flat and spectator-friendly along with beautiful ocean views.

The four-loop, 13.1-mile run reflects the beach running that SEALs do in training. Over half the course will include sand with aid stations along the way and at the southern point, a view of the Tijuana Hills. An energetic finish line awaits athletes as they round the iconic "Imperial Beach" sculptor to finish on the beginning of the pier.

The 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 SUPERFROG will offer 30 qualifying slots to the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa.
