Louisville Hosts Thousands of Athletes

Louisville, Kentucky, the home of Optical Dynamics, will host thousands of athletes for the annual IRONMAN Louisville event October 13th. Situated on the Ohio River in north-central Kentucky, the race takes athletes through a variety of Louisville’s scenic areas, including Waterfront Park, Oldham and Henry Counties, and the city of LaGrange. Athletes will end their journey with a finish line celebration at Fourth Street Live.

The 140.6-mile triathlon consists of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile run on a course that features the Louisville waterfront and urban and rural settings.

“With its downtown finish line, considered among the most exciting in the sport, Louisville is one of the most vibrant Ironman venues on the circuit,” Philip LaHaye, vice president of North American operations for Ironman, said in a news release.”

Several Optical Dynamics employees will be cheering on the athletes as they participate in this endurance event. Special words of encouragement to Optical Dynamics friend Jennifer Williamson. Go Jenn!!!
