Description: New Orleans    The city not only knows how to throw a superb party; it's a gracious host for an IRONMAN 70.3 event.  With strong influences from France, Africa and the Caribbean Islands, New Orleans bursts at the seams with a variety of food, culture, and architecture to explore. Take in live jazz, zydeco, or blues at the Spotted Cat, House of Blues and Preservation Hall. Hit the French Quarter to sample some jambalaya, and people watch your way around this mainstay of the race circuit. Finally, there is a tour option for everyone, whether you're a history buff or paranormal thrill seeker, guided excursions offer visitors of all interests a chance to learn about the city's intriguing past.  In 2012, the 1.2 mile swim was moved to South Shore Harbor, where it follows a unique N pattern through protected waters.  The 56 mile out and back bike course takes competitors out of town and through the Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge, and back into town. The course is flat, and has a tendency to be windy. The 13.1 mile run begins along the lakeshore, and then dips into town where it traverses Bayou St. John waterway. Athletes then run through City Park's Botanical Gardens, to finish in Louis Armstrong Park. There are 40 qualifying slots for the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Mont Tremblant, Quebec, Canada..
