An analysis by the prestigious Triathlete magazine shows that the 2022 Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia was the second fastest race in the IRONMAN 70.3 series. What's more, it turned out that the run course in Gdynia is the fastest in the world!

Triathlete magazine took a look at all IRONMAN 70.3 and IRONMAN events held in 2022. Taking into account the average finishing time, Gdynia ranked second. Only participants in IRONMAN 70.3 Duisburg in Germany completed the 1.9km swim, 90km bike and 21.1km run faster.

What's more, an analysis by Triathlete magazine shows that the Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia course was the fastest in the world in 2022. Athletes covered it in an average of 1 hour, 50 minutes and 15 seconds. The attractiveness of the course and the lively cheering of Gdynia's fans, who support the competitors on Świętojańska Street and the Seaside Boulevard in Gdynia, among others, are probably not without significance here.

The event's running course compares equally favourably with the ranking of the fastest IRONMAN distance courses in the world. In 2022, only Mallorca was slightly faster than Gdynia at the full distance!

We are glad that such a ranking has been created, because it proves that the course in Gdynia is not at all difficult and is suitable for beating personal bests. It is no coincidence that in 2018 it was here that Daniela Ryf set the best result of the IRONMAN 70.3 series in the world. For us, however, it is equally important that the courses in Gdynia are extremely spectacular. The swim in the Gulf of Gdansk, the bike course through the green Kashubian countryside and the run course in the very centre of the city - all this, combined with the finish line at the City Beach, makes the event in Gdynia unique on a global scale.
