IRONMAN Marbella has fastly become a moniker as it gets more participants excited each additional year. While it was postponed last year because of the height of the pandemic, it will soon once again become a reality as IRONMAN Marbella 2021 is set this September 2021.
The setting is still the beautiful and dreamy area of Marbella, Spain. This part of Spain is touted to be one of the most picturesque in all of coastal Spain. In fact if there was one location in Spain known for Instagram-worthy pictures, this Andalusian city is definitely the one. Where else can athletes swim, bike, and run and still be able to bask in the beautiful scenery but only in Marbella, Spain?
Ironman Marbella starts with a beautiful 1.2 mile swim in the beach of Puerto Banus Levante beach of the Mediterranean Sea. Here, crowds and supporters can actually look out from their terraces and balconies and enjoy this historical event unfold in front of their eyes. Several holiday goers set their holiday travels to Marbella, Spain around this time. Even if you are not an athlete or aspiring marathoner, you can enjoy the camaraderie and cheer on your favourite participants.
With the COVID pandemic still in the air, one can say that supporting your athletes from a distance is definitely worth it. That is why there are several holiday rentals in Marbella, especially in the Puerto Banus area that you can stay in, cheer from afar, and definitely feel safe. Vacation Marbella, one trusted and recommended luxury accommodation offers several properties within this area where you can feel safe and still feel the ambience of Ironman 70.3 Marbella in front of you.
After the swim, athletes are then taken to a 56 mile loop starting at the “Gold Mile” of Marbella. This bike course enables participants to cycle across the city of Marbella and get a feel of the old and new diverse looks of this beautiful place.
They will race through Monda, Coin, and Cartama before heading back to transition again in Puerto Banus.
Puerto Banus is known as Costa del Sol’s playground. This is a melting pot where everything that glistens and is full of glamour can be found.

On one side, participants get to experience and feel the magic of the Mediterranean. On the other side, they get to be cheered on by spectators and viewers as they finish near the sea. The magic starts and ends with Puerto Banus and with the high hopes that this pandemic will soon ease up on more travel restriction, several holiday letting companies are offering special early bookings for the September 19, 2021 week stay.
