Lo­ca­tion Calella, Spain Date 6 Oc­to­ber 2019 This pop­u­lar Costa Brava-set race has be­come the an­nual sea­son closer for the Euro­pean full-Iron­man sea­son, and it does so in style with sea, sun and maybe a post-race san­gria or two in the pretty sea­side town of Calella (58km north­east of Barcelona). The race be­gins with an Iron­man Ath­lete’s Choice Award-win­ning 3.8km sea swim in the warm Oc­to­ber wa­ters of the Mediter­ranean, be­fore the two-lap and mostly flat bike course largely hugs the coast­line and en­cour­ages some swift 180km bike splits. The three-lap marathon run con­tin­ues the seafront theme and heads north from Calella to Santa Su­sanna and back, be­fore a spec­ta­tor-friendly fin­ish ad­ja­cent to the beach. Calella is also the host of Iron­man 70.3 Barcelona on 19 May 2019. iron­
