IRONMAN returns to Panama City Beach November 4, 2017!
The 2017 Florida Ironman Triathlon returns to Panama City Beach the weekend of November 4th! This annual event is a welcome sight after previous weeks of much crazier gatherings along our sugar soft/white sand beaches. In fact, the locals love these athletic sporting events because it’s usually pretty QUIET! Meaning there are no concerts, motorcycles, parties, or huge crowds. Just the athletes, their equipment, and their own entourages, nice! It’s just great to see something going on here related to fitness and sport.
Ironman Florida has been part of the Fall tradition here on Panama City Beach, and they are all welcome!
This year’s event was in trouble recently due to recent Hurricanes that have been troubling the Gulf States over the past month. The weather is beautiful now and we can only hope it lasts. The Tri-athletes are already starting to show up all over the area even ahead of next weeks Biker Rally! These athletes don’t seem to be bothered by anything and are out practicing the course. They look ready to race today!
These folks will swim, bike, and run all day, and they are all fitness hero’s! Here’s the link to their website regarding this event, and the rest of their 2015 schedule.
The Florida Ironman is one of two triathlons held here on Panama City Beach during the year. Should be another great event, so we hope to see you there!
