During the weekend of 26-27 September 2020, the IRONMAN Multisport Festival will take place in Maastricht. Because of COVID-19, it has been decided that the 2020 edition will not start and finish in Maastricht's city centre, and no spectators will be allowed to attend.
The swimming part of the triathlon will take place in Grindgat in Oost-Maarland instead of in the regular Griend location. Additionally, the running part of the triathlon will take place in a quieter area between Maastricht and Eijsden, instead of in Maastricht's city centre. The cycling part of the triathlon remains unchanged.
The programme consists of a triathlon on Saturday 26 September. On Sunday 27 September, the IRONMAN 5i50 with Olympic distances is planned as the final event. The starting and finishing lines are located on an event site on Oosterweg, nearby Eijsden. Only participants and a number of members of the organization and jury are allowed to enter the event site.
