I've been mentioning that another race would be added to the Ironman 70.3 Series, but this is not the race I was aware of. It seems that China is not only hosting the 2008 Olympic Game and a new Ironman race, Ironman China in 2008 but they might also have an Ironman 70.3 in the works as well, Ironman 70.3 China. Just last week we had the cancellation of the Ironman 70.3 Baja triathlon in Mexico, but the expansion continues. This would be the second Ironman 70.3 triathlon set to take place in Asia. Just a few weeks ago Singapore hosted its first Ironman 70.3 triathlon and the first race in Asia.
It appears that the race organization that is putting on the Ironman China race is also working on this race which will help bring some consistency to the races run over in China for the World Triathlon Corporation.
No further details are available at this time as to where and when this race will take place. Once they are available, we will post the information.
