The Ironman is one of the most challenging sporting events on the planet. It combines a 2.4-mile swim with 112 miles of cycling and a full marathon. There are few "iron men" that can endure the physical and mental demands of such an event.
This year on October 25, renowned athletes from all over the globe will gather in Los Cabos to compete for a qualifying slot to the Ironman World Championship. Located on the southern edge of the Baja California Peninsula, the tourist destination of Los Cabos is famous for incredible landscapes that combine desert and mountain scenery.
Each Ironman participant must undergo rigorous training for periods of at least one to two years, regardless of whether they are professionals or amateurs. In fact, in the sports world, completing an Ironman is considered quite a feat. For many competitors, the main objective is to challenge themselves and test their own abilities.
The upcoming Ironman Los Cabos offers a superior challenge. In Los Cabos the difficulty level is multiplied! Competitors must face the force of the Pacific Ocean when swimming, and the winds while cycling along the mountain roads, as well as the hot sun and semi-desert landscape during the marathon. Not to mention, all of the normal physical challenges.
If you're one of the superheroes who plans to compete in this event, Los Cabos will reward you with friendly people, delicious cuisine and luxurious hotels. On the other hand, if you find yourself on vacation in Los Cabos on this date, don't pass up the opportunity to come out and support these incredible athletes as they test the limits of body and mind.
