We are working on completing them all and that they fit the event in order to offer the best possible experience to the athletes.
That for a few hours they forget the not so good parts of this 2020 and enjoy IRONMAN 70.3 Lanzarote as they deserve.
We are the first to want to see that happiness on the faces of the athletes when they see that it has been possible to return to the sport they like the most, compete, share experiences, cross a finish line ...
We are looking forward to that day, and like everyone, we hope that no situation will repeat itself that will make us return to how we were confined a few months ago and without sport.
