Half X is the world's toughest 70.3 mile Half 'Ironman' Distance Triathlon

 

At over 9,186 ft (2,800m) and taking in 6 hill climbs over 20%, with Hardknott Pass topping out at 33%, the bike leg is by far steepest and most gruelling of any Half Iron Tri anywhere in the World. With a climb of over 1000 m over 21 km the run is imposing in it's own right, taking in the peaks of Nab Scar, Heron Pike and Great Rigg before the final ascent of Fairfield Summit. If you are up for a challenge and want a different '70.3' experience then this is the race for you.
