The inaugural 2012 Ironman U.S. Championship is a new addition to the prestigious Ironman global series. The 140.6-mile race took place in parts of both New York City and New Jersey, making it the most metropolitan environment ever to host an Ironman. The course included a 2.4-mile swim in the Hudson River; a 112-mile bike ride on the Palisades Parkway in Bergen and Rockland Counties; and a 26.2-mile run beginning in New Jersey and finishing in Riverside Park in Manhattan.

On August 11, 2012, the inaugural Ironman U.S. Championship offered 75 Age Group qualifying slots for the 2012 Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawai`i with more than 2,500 other participants from around the world. Congratulations to Ross Ehlom, of Team Donate Life for solidifying one of those slots. There will be a prize purse of $125,000 for distribution among the top professional male and female finishers.
