Top Pro’s Battle for Inaugural Crown at 70.3 Campeche

Friday 17 March 2017
Campeche is one of Mexico’s best-kept secrets, with its colonial atmosphere, narrow streets, and pastel houses. The city is surrounded by walls that were built during the late 1600s to early 1700s in order to protect the city from Caribbean pirate attacks.

The 1.2 mile (1.9km) single-loop swim takes place in the protected water of the Gulf of Mexico. The rolling start swim start will take place at the Campeche Country Club Marina.
 
After the completion of the swim, athletes will head to T1 located at the Campeche Country Club Soccer Field. Athletes will exit T1 and head towards the Merida Highway to start the bike course. The two-loop, 56-mile (90 km) bike course will take athletes up and back along the Merida Highway before the final turn heading back to T2 at Downtown Campeche Convention Center XXI. While there are a few hills in the first section, the bike course is primarily a flat and fast course. 

The two-loop flat and fast 13.1-mile (21 km) run course winds along the Campeche Bay. Athletes will be treated to a very spectator friendly run course before finishing at the Campeche Convention Center XXI.

The 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 Campeche offers 50 qualifying slots to the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Chattanooga, Tennessee. 

Professional compete for P-750 points and $25,000 prize purse.

Tuesday 21 Mar 2017 [Triathlon News]

Heather Wurtele (CAN) proved once again she has become one of the most dominate competitors at half-distance racing. The Canadian proceeded to put a stamp the race with an early hard charging attach on the bike leg that resulted in Wurtele surging to the lead around 20 km's into the bike. Wurtele's one minute deficit was flipped over to close to a seven-minute advantage on Allison Linnell (USA) Mexico's Cecilia Perez as the women's race reach the conclusion of the 90-km bike. more
