Description

The inaugural I FEEL SLOVENIA IRONMAN 70.3 Slovenian Istria will take place on September 23, 2018 and features a unique cross-border bike course through Slovenia and Italy.

Lending its name to the race, the region of Slovenian Istria is located approximately 100 km south-west of the country’s capital of Ljubljana. With access to the Adriatic Sea and rolling hills as well as a perfect touristic infrastructure, it is a place made for a triathlon.

Athletes will start their race in Koper a captivating Mediterranean city located at the Adriatic Sea. Its Italian name, Capodistria, derives from one of its former names – Caput Histriae, which means “Capital of Istria”. The fortified town and its buildings, including the cathedral and multiple palaces, can be admired from Ukmar Square, where the 1.9-km (1.2-mile) spectator-friendly swim course starts and ends.

A 90.1-km (56-mile) bike course leading through two countries – Slovenia and Italy – as participants ride through the old town of Koper and the city of Ankaran. Soon after that athletes cross the state border between Slovenia and Italy and ride along the Italian coast. On its return to Slovenia, the course passes Osop, one of Slovenia’s oldest villages with beautiful stone houses and picturesque streets. Two more ascents follow in the hinterland of Slovenian Istria and the course ends with a long descent where athletes are able to enjoy an amazing view over well-known Slovenian tourist destinations, Koper, Izola and Piran.

A two-lap 21.1-km (13.1-mile) run course concludes the race. The course leads through the center of Koper and then along the coastal road to Izola and back. The run course is flat with its highest point just 5 meters (16 feet) above sea level. The finish line is located at the promenade of Koper right next to the sea.

I FEEL SLOVENIA IRONMAN 70.3 Slovenian Istria will offer 30 age-group qualifying slots for the 2019 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship being held in Nice, France.
