Muncie set to hold Ironman triathlon for 3,000 athletes

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The city of Muncie is days away from making history for the state of Indiana.

The city will host 3,000 athletes and many more of their friends and family on Oct. 2.

That’s because Muncie will play host for the first and possibly only time Indiana will hold a full Ironman distance triathlon.

It’s a single-day race of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and 26.2 full marathon run.

The mayor of Muncie, Dan Ridenour, was on “Daybreak” Thursday to talk about the monumental race and what it means for his city.
