Who?

You, the triathlete. There's no need to be entered in Ironman Wisconsin. Just be able to complete long swims, rides, and runs at your own pace.

Where?

All sessions take place in Madison, Wisconsin and the surrounding area on the Ironman Wisconsin swim, bike, and run courses. See the lodging options in downtown Madison for easy access to the course and associated activities of the weekend.

Course Support

All athletes are encouraged to bring their preferred endurance fuels on the course. For the bike, the course maps have the location of three Kwik Trips. These gas stations are more the happy to provide you with water, Gatorade, Snickers, and other goodies to keep you energized. All you have to do is bring a few American dollar bills along. They also take credit cards if that's your thing.
