Enter Ironman Brazil for an opportunity to combine a spectacular holiday with your next Ironman race.
The 2011 race will take place on May 29th.
The race takes place in the natural beauty and climate of the Florianopolis magical island. It’s just an hour flight away from Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo City. This Ironman event has been organized by Latin Sports since 2001.
The Brazil race has seen an exponential growth from the 250 competitors in 2000. The last few years have seen it grow to almost 1,000 and there is no end in sight to just how large this spectacular Ironman will grow in future years.
The race’s reinforcement in the international circuit may be proved by the fact that most of the athletes come from abroad.
I think many triathletes have come to realize that Brazil is a great place to holiday before and after their Ironman.
The Brasil Telecom Ironman Triathlon Florianopolis course is fast, scenic, and safe.
The ocean swim is beach-protected, so there is virtually no chop. The two-lap triangular swim course will be wetsuit legal for age-group triathletes, and also for pros as well, if water temperatures are measured at 22 degrees C or lower on race day.
The bike course starts from the transition area at Jurere Beach, and is fast on good, mostly flat road surfaces with a couple of “decent” hills.
The out-and-back run course will be completely illuminated and in an open-air mall near the central transition area.
Both the transition and finish area are near a water park and good shopping, so your loved ones will have something to do while you’re busy putting in your hours on the course.
