(Miami, Florida) – October 20, 2016 OrthoNOW®, the nation’s only Orthopedic Urgent Care Franchise will be the exclusive medical provider of City Bikes IRONMAN® 70.3 Miami. The race, which is scheduled to kick off at 7:25 am on October 23rd at Bayfront Park, will host athletes from more than 60 countries and 50 states. This international event provides a competitive arena for some of the most elite athletes in the world. Ironman 70.3 stands for the total distance of miles covered during the race; participants will be swimming 1.2 miles, cycling 56 miles, and running 13.1 miles. This event, which is also known as “Half Ironman” covers half the distance of the internationally acclaimed IRONMAN® triathlon also organized by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC).
As the exclusive medical provider for City Bikes IRONMAN® 70.3 Miami, OrthoNOW will be on hand with a team of volunteer medical staff, including team members from The Surgery Center at Doral, working in a fully functioning on-site emergency room ready to treat athletes in the event of injury or dehydration during and after the competition.
Dr. Alejandro Badia, Chief Medical Officer of OrthoNOW Doral said “We are extremely proud to be the exclusive medical provider of City Bikes IRONMAN® 70.3 Miami for the fifth consecutive year. Over time, it has been our privilege to treat hundreds of athletes. It is very gratifying because we know the time, money, and burden that these athletes save by being treated in-house instead of being transported elsewhere. Treating sports injuries is at the core of the specialized care that we provide in all of our OrthoNOW Urgent Care Centers, of not only elite athletes but for everyday sports enthusiasts and weekend warriors”.
Wilber Anderson, CEO of Miami Tri Events, City Bikes IRONMAN® 70.3 Miami said “We’ve had the great fortune of having OrthoNOW as the exclusive medical provider for City Bikes IRONMAN® 70.3 Miami for five years now. It’s vital to have their physicians, orthopedic and critical care specialists on site. Their staff of experts care for the athletes if a situation arises and their presence gives the competitors the peace of mind they need before beginning the race”.
In addition to the race, City Bikes IRONMAN® 70.3 Miami will also be hosting an expo over the weekend, where more than 3,000 participating athletes and 15,000 spectators alike are expected to visit for their mandatory check-ins and bike drops. Additionally, the athletes and fans will be able to buy the latest gear and equipment at discounted prices along with gathering the most recent information on products in the sports industry.
