Distinctly different to other Spanish races on the IRONMAN circuit, IRONMAN Vitoria-Gasteiz celebrates the unique landscapes and characteristics of northern Spain. Athletes can expect mild summer temperatures averaging 20'C as they start their 3.8km swim in the warm and calm waters of the scenic lake Ullíbarri-Gamboa, the biggest water reservoir in Euskadi. Heading out onto the 180km bike course, athletes will follow the lake shores and continue through the beautiful green countryside and scenic towns of the Álava region while the Elguea Mountains provides the perfect backdrop.
