The Ironman Brazil is located in what most people called “the place to be” . A mixture of St. Tropez and Ibiza without the attitude” by the New York Times, Florianopolis, Brazil on the Island of Santa Catarina boasts world-class entertainment, beaches and restaurants. The sun-soaked stretches of coastline in “Floripa,” as locals affectionately call it, make up forty-two beaches in total. Athletes lining up for the Ironman Brazil event will find themselves in a sanctuary for sports, natural life and tourism from around the globe.
The 2.4-mile mass swim start is located at Jurere Internacional Beach – in front of La Serena Restaurant. Expect the two-loop swim to be in an average temperature of 70F (21C), while the mostly flat two-loop 112-mile bike course will challenge athletes with four major climbs and descents. Athletes will finish with a 26.2-mile run with a 13-mile loop with one hill and two 6.5-mile loops that are mostly flat.
World’s Fastest Ironman Race
Great Britain’s Tim Don posted a 7:40:23 at today’s Ironman South American Championship in Florianopolis, Brazil to become the fastest athlete to ever finish an Ironman-branded race. The former ITU star put together a 44:16 swim, a 4:06:56 bike and a 2:44:46 marathon to post the incredible 7:40:23 finishing time and break Canadian Lionel Sanders’ record of 7:44:29, which was just set at last November’s Ironman Arizona. In addition to the record, Don earned the championship victory with an astounding 25-minute margin over second-place finisher Kyle Buckingham of South Africa and will be guaranteed a slot for October’s Ironman World Championship.
Don’s performance is part of an overall trend of faster iron-distance finishing times. The record prior to Sanders’ Arizona win stood at 7:45:58 (Marino Vanhoenacker in 2011) for over five years. Germany’s Jan Frodeno also recently broke the overall record for fastest iron-distance race. He posted a 7:35:39 at July’s Challenge Roth (a non-Ironman event) to break the previous record of 7:41:33 of countryman Andreas Raelert, which was also set in Roth.
