Ironman and the organizers of Ironman Cozumel and Ironman 70.3 Cozumel announced the addition of Ironman Los Cabos, scheduled for March 17, 2013, in beautiful Los Cabos, Mexico.
Los Cabos, the stunning world-wide resort destination located at the tip of the Baja Peninsula in Baja California, Mexico will provide athletes with a 2.4-mile swim in azure blue and turquoise waters in the Sea of Cortes, followed by a 112-mile bike course and a 26.2-mile run course that travels along a 20-mile corridor between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, all while offering views of rugged cliffs, desert vistas and mountains that are bound together by a wash of colors that are unmistakably Cabo’s.
Known for its vibrant culture and nightlife, Cabo San Lucas offers visitors a variety of attractions that showcase the heart of Mexico’s Western Coast, all while boasting world-class service and amenities. Natural wonders dot the coastline and outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy landmarks such as El Arco, a natural rock formation in the shape of an arch that lies adjacent to Playa Del Amor (Lover’s Beach), as well as the rich warm waters and its plethora of black corral gardens, unique marine life and miles of gorgeous sandy beaches.
