Ironman 70.3 Ruegen Results 2015

Germany’s Michael Raelert leads charge in Ironman 70.3 Ruegen results 2015.

On Sunday September 13 Michael Raelert and Yvonne Van Vlerken hoped to defend their Ironman 70.3 Ruegen 2014 titles.

The swim was cancelled in the inaugural race in 2014 and the format of the race was changed.

Ultimately the race in 2014 consisted of a 5k run, 90k bike, and 21.1k run and you would think the adjusted format favored the stronger runners.

Raelert and Van Vlerken would be trying to defend their titles as champions of Ironman 70.3 Ruegen.

Raelert would be up against several of Europe’s top pros.

Marco Albert of Estonia and fellow German’s Reichel Horst and Timo Bracht, were just a few of the male pros capable of challenging for podium spots in the Ironman 70.3 Ruegen results 2014 on their best effort.
