Sport of Spectating Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga

Updated 2018. My husband did Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga, so I’m quite familiar with the course. It makes it easy for me to offer tips for the sport of spectating Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga. I have to say from a supporter’s point of view, it wasn’t the easiest race to spectate or to see your racer multiple times.

We love Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico and it’s always at the top of our race list. I will say, though, there are a few things to pay attention to as a spectator. It’s not a super stroller-friendly race.
