Cozumel Annual Ironman Marathon

ironmanThe Ford Iron Man Cozumel occurs annually in November and attracts thousands of people to the small island. There are three parts to the race: swimming, running and bicycling. Over the course of 126 miles the contestants race on foot along the highway, hop on bicycles and swim through the protected waters of the Chankanaab Park Beach. The water leg of the race is the most visually spectacular with the sun shining off of the clear waters as they heave with swimmers and fish. Locals enjoy crowding onto the main roads in the town to cheer passing athletes and offer support for those who appear fatigued. The
finish line is at City Hall where hundreds gather to cheer and celebrate with the athletes.
