IRONMAN 70.3 PUCON, CHILE
The IRONMAN 70.3 series added HERBALIFE IRONMAN 70.3 Pucon to its global event series in 2008—and hasn’t looked back. The city, located in souther Chile, offers a unique landscape of natural surroundings that allow for skiing, horseback riding, rafting and canoeing throughout the year. It's a rugged, outdoorsy venue, beloved for its views of the Villarrica Volcano and steamy Palguin Hot Springs. Begin your race with a 1.2-mile, two-loop swim in the calm waters of Lake Villarrica, with its awe-inspiring volcano backdrop. Cyclists will then take on a hilly 56-mile, two-loop course with scenic lake and volcano views and challenging winds as they head back to town. The final leg is a 13.1-mile run featuring a spectator-packed course as runners go through town. There will be 30 Age Group qualifying slots to the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada.
