2018 Indofood IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan

Bintan Island

The 4th Indofood IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan, happening on August 19, 2018, is stepping up again with a stellar international elite athlete line-up and the introduction of some exciting changes to the race course.


The limelight will not be just on the elite athletes: a record number of 1,300 amateur triathletes, including 85% of international visitors, will join the professionals on the start line. The majority of them will aim to complete the grueling 1.9km swim, 90km bike and 21.1km run individually, however the event offers a relay option where a team of three will complete the course together, each team member doing only one discipline.


Always seeking to enhance the athletes’ experience, organiser MetaSport has perfected the award-winning course this year. The swim course shape has been modified to avoid sun glare and improve visibility, making navigation easier.


The most significant change however, concerns the bike course. The unique and scenic one-lap course has been reversed in direction to improve traffic conditions, giving a totally fresh perspective of the course and highlighting the lush green hills and striking coastal stretches. In addition, a 12km-lap through a picturesque kampong village around the 60km mark replaces the Ria Bintan dog-leg.
