The IRONMAN 70.3 Timberman Team would like to thank you in advance for your hospitality during the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 Timberman. On Sunday, September 18, triathletes will visit Laconia to test their physical and mental limits. Over the course of the day, they will race throughout the community as they complete a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike ride, and a 13.1-mile run in succession. We ask for your continued cooperation and understanding on race day as you travel around the community. As always, we appreciate your support and ask that you proceed with caution, utilize detour routes if able, and allow for additional travel time to your destination. Participants count on you for motivation on race day, so bring your friends and cheer them on, or even volunteer! We look forward to another great event and hope to see you out there!
