IRONMAN Barcelona showcases a historic and culturally rich region of Spain. The village of Calella of the Barcelona-Maresme region, on Spains eastern coastline on the Mediterranean Sea, hosts what promises to be one of the most spectacular IRONMAN race venues on the circuit.
While visiting Barcelona, there are endless activities and sights to see. Exploring the architecture of the countless World Heritage Protected buildings that span the Romanesque, Gothic, and Modernisme eras will leave you breathless. The museums, cathedrals, markets, bazaars, shops, and numerous walking tours will keep you busy by day while the abundance of local and worldly culinary opportunities available will satisfy everyones tastes. Renowned for its beautiful beaches and lively nightlife, there's something for athletes, family, and fans alike at this destination event.
The single-lap, 3,800 meter swim in the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea features a rolling start, beginning and ending on the beach of Calella. The new, two-loop bike course is very flat and fast. The 42.2 km run from Calella to Calella-Santa Susanna follows the Mediterranean Sea.
IRONMAN Barcelona offers 40 qualifying slots for the 2018 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
