The Metlife 70.3 Ironman is scheduled to take place on September 30, 2018.  This is the 8th year of the event.  Cozumel’s Ironman 70.3 – an  international event  – is one of the first athletic events that informally marks what has now become known as “triathlon season” in Cozumel.  Previous years have been sold-out events, in fact, last year’s event was attended by more than 1,500 athletes and their families cheering them on.

The 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 Cozumel offers 30 qualifying slots to the 2019 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.

The one-loop, 1.2-mile swim takes place off the coast of Cozumel in the Caribbean Sea. Following the swim, athletes will embark on the 56-mile bike course from the Chankanaab Park parking lot (T1) and finish at T2 next to Cozumel’s City Hall in the heart of downtown. The 13.1-mile run course is all flat and paved and passes many of Cozumel’s signature sites, including its waterfront walk, downtown main plaza and historic neighborhoods.

Cozumel, un evento internacional, es uno de los primeros que de manera informal marca lo que se ha dado por llamar “la temporada de triatlones” en Cozumel. Los años anteriores han sido eventos con ventas agotadas. De hecho, el año pasado se contó con la participación de más de 1,500 atletas y sus familias quienes les animaban.

 

El Ironman 70.3 del 2018 de Cozumel ofrece 30  espacios clasificatorios para el Campeonato Mundial 70.13 del 2019.
