Ironman Los Cabos 2016

On October 30th, 2016 a grand event for athletes takes place. Located just 20 miles to the northeast of Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo will take visitors back to a historic time as ancient buildings and architecture surround the small town. And an estuary with an endless variety of colorful birds and wildlife that will make you feel like you’re in another world.

IRONMAN Los Cabos, offers 40 qualifying spots to athletes. It begins with a 2.4-mile swim in the azure blue waters of the Sea of Cortes. They'll then bike 112 miles and run 26.2 miles along a 20-mile corridor between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, where views of rugged cliffs, deserts and mountains make the race unmistakably unique. This is a once in a lifetime experience both for the athletes and spectators. You’ll be sure to not want to miss this fun event.
