Cody Beals wowed spectators at Ironman 70.3 Ecuador this morning as he demolished the men’s field in 3:48:04 with a nearly nine-minute lead over the runner-up, Argentina’s Mario de Elias. Beals was in the lead pack from the start, clocking one of the fastest swims of the day followed by a stunning 2:05:16 bike split that pushed him into first place. Beals widened his gap over the course of the run and finished his race off with a 1:14:36 half marathon split.

Ironman 70.3 Ecuador was a special event this year as the brand’s charity foundation and volunteers raised over $30,000 to support local communities after a devastating earthquake shook the region earlier this spring.

This is Beals’ second win of the year. The 26-year-old now has 13 half distance podiums under his belt in his short two years as a pro in the sport, including two wins at Ironman 70.3 Eagleman (2015 and 2016) and a third place this year at Ironman 70.3 South American Pro Championships in Palmas, Brazil.

Beals plans to race at Ironman 70.3 Santa Cruz and the ITU Long Distance World Championships in Oklahoma in September.
