The two days of racing will feature significant British interest too, with the likes of Alistair Brownlee, Lucy Charles-Barclay, Holly Lawrence and Emma Pallant up against the very best in the sport, including Daniela Ryf and Javier Gomez.

Here are the keys facts and timings that you need to watch and follow all of the action as it happens:
DATES: Saturday 7th September (Pro Women) / Sunday 8th September (Pro Men)
RACE START TIMES: Pro start times 07:00 a.m. local time (CET) / 06:00 a.m. UK-time
WATCH: online via www.facebook.com/IRONMANnow or via Facebook Watch
LIVE STREAMS START AT 06:50 a.m (local) / 05:50 a.m. (UK time) BOTH DAYS
Depending on your equipment, you can watch the IRONMAN ‘Facebook’ broadcasts easily on your TV – potentially without the need for a computer / tablet.
If you have a Samsung Smart TV for example (as I do) and a good internet connection, then you can download the Facebook Watch TV App and watch in full widescreen. I’ve used this many times and, for the vast majority of the time, it has worked fantastically. Streaming devices such as Apple TV of Chromecast will also work well in this regard.
