In 2018 sees the 2nd year of the Ironman 70.3 Costa Rica, which is held in Playa del Coco, Guanacaste (Northern Costa Rica). In 2017 it saw a complete sell within 2 weeks of opening, however this year it appears there are still some slots available.
The course itself has not changed, with a very easy swim in the bay of Coco, then onto the bike with a little climb within the first 2 K, followed by mostly flat. This bike course is done 2 times, however expect to get cheered on as everyone in the local villages comes out to cheer. The run is much like the bike with regards to tons of spectators, however it's a 2x 10.5K course of which the 4-10 Km part is up and down, which has an impact on building a run rhythm.
Expect temperatures in the 80's to 90's with about 80% humidity. It's a very green run as it's during the green season of Costa Rica (somewhat cooler).
