Chrissie Wellington to defend her title at the K-Swiss Ironman 70.3 Kansas Triathlon

Chrissie Wellington, three-time Ford Ironman World Champion, will return to Lawrence, Kansas to defend her title at the K-Swiss Ironman 70.3 Kansas triathlon on Sunday, June 6th.

 

“Kansas 70.3 has everything I look for in a race: a strong pro field; a beautiful, challenging course; heaps of enthusiastic spectators; dedicated support for charitable causes and an awesome, vibrant community spirit. Running along the ‘yellow brick road finish line’ last June topped off an incredible journey somewhere over the rainbow, and I cannot wait to come back and defend the Kansas crown this year!” said Wellington

Even a flat tire on the bike course in Kansas last year did not stop Wellington from winning the race at Clinton Start Park. After winning the K-Swiss Ironman 70.3 Kansas race, Wellington went on to set a new course record in Kona, winning her third Ford Ironman World Championship in a row.
 
“Having an athlete like Chrissie at our event adds to the great festive, family atmosphere of this race. She is such a wonderful ambassador for our sport and she brings such great enthusiasm and competitive spirit to the race. We look forward to clicking her running shoes three times at the finish line and saying – ‘There’s No Place like Home,’”, said race director, Tom Ziebart.
