and Ironman 70.3 China
, both presented by K-SWISS are 100% confirmed for the double whammy race day of April 19, 2009
in Haikou, Hainan.
Once more you have the pick of the full monty or a half hoof on the same day - the Ironman China combo is unique in the Ironman world.
Go ahead and book your flights, and plan your vacation time. Hold fire on the hotel bookings for the time being and here's why:
We have all the necessary approvals to use last year's widely praised race course.
However, we are considering course changes that may result in moving the race from the west side of Haikou (where the race was staged last year) to the east side of town. Why? Well, some brand spanking new roads completed since last year’s race give us the opportunity to explore new and better course options, including a sheltered swim. We are taking full advantage of this opportunity and expect to have an announcement shortly.
We recommend that you do not make hotel arrangements until the course is finalized. All entrants will be immediately advised about the course and the host hotel as soon as a final decision is made.
More info very soon!
