Peloton’s Matt Wilpers is in Augusta, Maine this weekend as he gets ready to compete in the Ironman 70.3 Maine. The Ironman 70.3, technically a half-ironman, is a series of worldwide endurance events where elite athletes across the globe come together to compete in one of the most difficult endurance events in sports.
Each 70.3 competition requires athletes to complete the following events in order: a 1.2 mile swim, then a 56-mile bike ride, and finally a 13.1 mile run. On this particular course, Matt and several athletes from Team Wilpers coaching will swim down the Kennebec River, bike along a course of mixed climbs and descents, and finally run along the Kennebec River Rail Trail.
If you’re interested in watching the race, you can do so here. Coverage starts at 530 am (EST) on July 30. You can also follow Matt’s progress along the course by downloading the event app here. Matt’s race number is 1586. Matt posted some footage this morning of himself and some teammates getting loose and ready for their big day tomorrow.
Let’s wish Matt and his Team Wilpers teammates good luck!!
