12 mile swim, 560 mile bike, 131 mile run – cut off 7 days
Original format Deca Ironman races allow continuous multiple run and bike laps of flat monotonous courses over a few kilometres. Athletes may rest and sleep at their own leisure. Most athletes develop a routine of sleeping around 3 hours during a similar time each day in the early hours.
The Enduroman 5-Iron takes you across an extremely demanding bike course on open roads and a run course along a challenging and undulating trail. Instead of athletes choosing when to sleep, the race dictates that all athletes will not compete from between 3 hours before first light and first light. This also ensures the safety of our athletes out on the courses.
