Behind The Scenes At Ironman Lanzarote

Tomorrow around 1800 athletes will set off at 7AM to compete in the world’s toughest triathlon event. Some will complete the course in less than 9 hours, others will push the 17 hour time limit to the maximum, and many will stop along the way. For them, it will be one of the biggest days of their life, but without an army of over 4,000 volunteers and staff, it couldn’t happen.

We thought we’d go behind the scenes of this iconic event, which is so valuable to the island’s economy, to show you some of the work that goes on.
