THE WHY

Uncompromised beauty and history await athletes in Puerto Rico. San Juan has a rich history that offers tourists a multitude of attractions. Explore the El Yunque Rainforest, Old San Juan, or El Morro Fortress, a designated National Historic Site, while planning your IRONMAN 70.3 race-cation.



THE EXPERIENCE

Spectators and athletes alike are treated to amazing views on this course, whether from San Beach, Dos Hermanos Bridge or the Caribe Hilton's San Geronimo grounds. Start your day with a 1.2-mile swim in the protected waters of Condado Lagoon, followed by a 56-mile bike over the northern part of the island to Dorado and on to challenging cross-winds near the Atlantic Ocean.  The two-loop, 13.1-mile run course winds through the northern part of the islet with picturesque views of the Atlantic Ocean and Spanish architecture.
