Ironman Lanzarote

Three-hundred volcanic cones amazing beaches, tropical palm trees, and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Sound like a good place to run, swim and cycle a combined distance of 225 kilometers? Hmm, I’m not sure, maybe I will leave that to the experts.

Considered one of the toughest challenges on the iron man circuit, the Lanzarote Iron Man is incredibly grueling and pushes people to their physical and mental limits as the midday sun eats away at their willpower.

This Ironman takes place in May, and the swimming part of the challenge occurs in Grande Parade at Puerto del Carmen, so if you want to watch the swimmers, or are bold enough to be a swimmer in this challenge, then this is another major spectacle worth witnessing in Puerto del Carmen.
