Metlife 70.3 Ironman Cozumel Next Weekend, Sunday 21st

The Metlife 70.3 Ironman is scheduled to take place on September 21st, 2014.  Cozumel’s Ironman 70.3 – an  international event is one of the first that marks what has now become known as “triathlon season” in Cozumel.  This will be the third year that Cozumel has hosted this event.  Both 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.

Last year, two island residents, Rosy Zapata Vázquez and John Flynn, managed to secure spots in the World Ironman 70.3.

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.

An ex-Connecticut Yankee who has called Cozumel home for over 18 years, Laura ran away to the Caribbean years ago, bumped around the islands teaching SCUBA diving, lost some time in Jamaica, and finally stopped in Cozumel for a 2 week vacation that hasn’t ended yet. With a degree in Journalism from a fancy private college she convinced her parents to pay for, Laura writes, edits, and creates the weeklyCozumel 4 You news,social media, and promotional articles about the island, as well as moderates the Cozumel 4 You Facebook group, which currently has over 25,000 members. Her long suffering husband, Fabian, has long since resigned himself to having zero private life, as he’s been involved in her various schemes and plots since his arrival. Proud parents to a variety of rescue dogs and cats, Laura continues to be the bane of her traditional Mexican mother-in-law’s existence, as she muses her way through life in the Mexican Caribbean.
