IRONMAN Brazil offers a scenic course and sparkling beaches, which have been attracting athletes from all over the world for over 17 years.
Called "the place to be" and "a mixture of St. Tropez and Ibiza without the attitude" by the New York Times, Florianopolis, Brazil on the Island of Santa Catarina boasts world-class entertainment, beaches and restaurants. The sun-soaked stretches of coastline in "Floripa," as locals affectionately call it, make up forty-two beaches in total. Athletes lining up for the event will find themselves in a sanctuary for sports, natural life and tourism from around the globe.
The 2.4-mile mass swim start is located at Jurere Internacional Beach in front of La Serena Restaurant. Expect the two-loop swim to be in an average temperature of 70F (21C), while the mostly flat two-loop 112-mile bike course will challenge athletes with four major climbs and descents. Athletes will finish with a 26.2-mile run with a 13-mile loop with one hill and two 6.5-mile loops that are mostly flat.
The temperate climate with low humidity also makes Florianopolis a perfect location for an IRONMAN, and a vacation.
IRONMAN Brazil offers 75 qualifying slots for the 2017 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, HI.
