25th edition of Ironman Lanzarote
The next 21st of May, the island of Lanzarote will host the 25th edition of the Ironman Lanzarote where some of the best triathletes in the specialty have confirmed their participation in the competition.
The power of nature is nowhere as impressive as it is in Lanzarote. One of the seven Canary Islands, Lanzarote is only 120 km from the African coast. This island captivates visitors with its spectacular scenery and unique style.
The Ironman Lanzarote is an official qualifying event for the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii.
