Ironman Lanzarote is considered by many to be one of the toughest Ironman-events in the world. The IM 70:3 Lanzarote also lives up to that statement. The strong unpredictable desertwinds combined withs steep climbs make up for a course that will challenge the competitors to their maximum.

 

The Swim course takes place in the lagoon in front of Club La Santa, on the North West coast of Lanzarote. It is a  one loop course, and athletes will run past spectators and supporters on their way to the first transition.

The bike course, challenging athletes with the strong island winds, goes all around the north part of the island with the stunning climb of 550 m from 44,3km to 56,1km. The run course consists of three laps of 7 km each where the athletes will run through the  village of La Santa, enjoying the breathtaking views of the ocean under the Lanzarote sun.

In the womens race it was all about Helle Fredriksen of Denmark. She was the first woman out of the water and she held on to that lead the entire day to ensure her first victory in Lanzarote.

In the mens race Marko Albert (EST) was first out of the water with Will Clark in fourth and spanish favourite Victor del Corral in 17 th place of the men and overall 18th. The rest of the day it would all be about Victor chasing coring the fastest bike leg and fastest run of the day. But it would not be enough to catch up to Will Clark who won just six seconds ahead of Victor.
