The Ironman 70.3 Racine triathlon puts the area in the international sports spotlight this Sunday (July 16).
As many as 2,500 elite athletes from more than dozen countries will compete in a 1.2-mile swim in Lake Michigan, a 56-mile bicycle race on the scenic roads of Racine County and a 13.1-mile run along the Lake Michigan shoreline.
The 2017 triathlon gets under way at 7 a.m. with a swim near North Beach, 100 Kewaunee St. The beach also serves as the transition area among events.
