IRONMAN 70.3 Dubai takes place right next to the iconic Burj AlArab, the stunning seven-star hotel that has hosted celebrities from all over the world. It's an exotic race in a desert paradise. Modern Dubai has more than 70 shopping centers, including the world's largest, Dubai Mall. The "City of Gold" is also known for the traditional souk districts located on either side of its creek. The city boasts ultramodern architecture and lively nightlife. Athletes begin their day with a swim course begin from Jumeirah public beach, one of the region’s most well-known destination beaches and a getaway for travelers from all over the world. The bike route leaves the city behind and ventures into the Arabian Dunes. A 45km flat out and back will prove to be a very fast course, if winds stay down. The scenes of the natural Arabian Desert were previously seen on TV globally through the annual Tour of Dubai. Dubai recently completed a running trail along Jumeira Beach to be used by the public all year round. The IRONMAN 70.3 Dubai run route will cover three laps (7km each) along a spectator-friendly, packed beach. The crowd will cheer participants through the 21.1 run before they finish next to the start and transition area at the general grand stand. IRONMAN 70.3 Dubai will offer 30 qualifying slots for the 2019 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nice, France. IRONMAN 70.3 Dubai will offer 25 additional slots dedicated to the Women for Tri initiative, applied across all female age groupe categories.
