What is the course of the Lanzarote Ironman?
In addition to the distance, Ironman Lanzarote is quite a challenge because of its course, a circuit that is divided into swimming, cycling and running events.
As far as the open water swimming part is concerned, the entire course will take place in Playa Grande in Puerto del Carmen. The cycling section may be the toughest part, as it will take them across the island from one end to the other with an elevation of almost 2,500 metres. In fact, there will be stretches where they will reach a height of almost 600 metres. During this period, the athletes will pass through emblematic places such as the Mirador del Río, Teguise, Los Helechos or La Asomada, mountain passes that will challenge the physical capacity of the participants.
