Quick facts about Ironman 70.3 Muncie 2018
Best known as the home of Ball State University and the Ball State Cardinals, Muncie offers a supportive community with its Hoosier hospitality. The Prairie Creek Reservoir and Campground creates a welcoming, family friendly environment for athletes and spectators during Affresh IRONMAN 70.3 Muncie race week.
The 1,275 acre body of water will have an expected water temperature of 78 F. Due to the size of Prairie Creek Reservoir, the water temperature can change quickly race week so participants are advised to bring a wetsuit if they have one. The water is usually very calm, but heavy winds can cause the water to become slightly choppy.
Athletes can expect a very fast out-and-back bike course with 56 miles of closed state highways and country roads that wind through rural Delaware and Henry counties. The course hovers approx. 1,000 feet above sea level with less than a couple hundred feet of elevation change. Light winds usually favor athletes on the return trip.
After the fast out-and-back bike course athletes are treated to a competitive run around the south side of Prairie Creek Reservoir. The course continues over rolling hills that challenge athletes before finishing back at Prairie Creek Reservoir.
