Take on this epic, cross-terrain challenge in one of these amazing locations across the world! Anyone who can finish an ironman standing is more of a superhero than Tony Stark in our eyes.
One of the most challenging single-day races in the world, an Ironman is a long-distance triathlete event comprising a 2.4-mile swim, followed by a 112-mile bicycle ride and finishing with a 26.22-mile run.
Organised by the World Triathlon Corporation, events are held throughout the year in various locations across the globe, with each course encompassing an array of natural landscapes, such as lakes, hills, beaches, and oceans.
Renowned for its otherworldly volcanic scenery, stunning beaches, delicious cuisine and excellent year-round climate, Lanzarote, the largest of the Canary Islands and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, is a unique and beautiful island, rich in culture and adventure and the perfect location for an Iron Man. One of Europe’s longest standing races, Lanzarote’s annual Ironman, consists of an ocean swim, a rugged hilly bike ride and finally a flat run along the beachside Avenida de Las Playas.
