If you missed the Berlin Ironman Competition don't fret, Copenhagen is next on the illustrious competition's course and there's still time to book a flight to Denmark's impressive capital. You don't want to miss the world's fiercest competitors as the battle against exhaustion and the elements in an epic race and testament to the indomitable nature of human spirit.

The World Triathlon Corporation (WTC), owners of Ironman, announced today that they have purchased YWC Copenhagen and will take over Challenge Copenhagen and Challenge Aarhus, along with a few other events. They have yet to announce how these events will transition to Ironman branding. Challenge Aarhus took place over the weekend, while Challenge Copenhagen is currently set for Aug. 18, 2013. See quotes from the press release below:

Andrew Messick, CEO, Ironman: “Ironman is committed to growth in Europe as there is great passion for the sport of triathlon here. YWC has a strong line-up of triathlons and we are excited to help advance the sport in Denmark.”
