Bring Back Ironman Melbourne to Frankston

This petition had 1,106 supporters

Ironman Melbourne was held in Frankston from 2012-2015, at each of these races the world's best triathletes swam 3,8km in Frankston, rode 180km from Frankston to Ringwood and back via Eastlink then finished off with a 42.195km run from Frankston to Catani Gardens in St Kilda.   Due to a clash with the Melbourne Formula Grand Prix, Ironman Asia Pacific made the unpopular decision to first reschedule the race, then they cancelled the event entirely.

The arrival of Ironman Triathlon to Melbourne, and particularly in Frankston saw a rapid increase in membership numbers to all Melbourne based triathlon clubs and also significant economic benefits to the Frankston through the thousands of triathletes and their supporters and other visitors coming in to watch and / or support the event.

We want Ironman Asia Pacific to bring back Ironman back to Melbourne and specifically back to Frankston.  The swim and ride course can remain the same and the run course would be a 42km loop from Frankston to Mordialloc and return.
