The Gruelling Ironman & Melt Down Temperatures!
This Saturday, it’s the 21st Ironman Lanzarote, a test of endurance beyond limits and renowned to be the toughest Ironman in the world.
Swim: 3.8km Cycle 180.2km Run 42.2km
Lanzarote is hot, windy and made up of volcanic mountains, a paradise for a relaxing holiday, but a testing, gruelling island when you have an Ironman medal in your sights.
Swimming is the first event and all participants take to the sea at 7am, this is followed by the 180km cycle ride through the island, on their return, it's the marathon! Every participant must be over the finishing line by midnight. We will be there to see the highlights of this amazing event that has the island pulsating and we’ll be there to cheer the last competitors over the finishing line before midnight.
