The swimming competition will take place at Palmilla Beach, the perfect setting for the one lap, rectangular shaped course. The water temperature during the month of March is around 72ºF (22ºC). The time limit will be 2:20 hours after the race starts, those still in the water after this time will be disqualified, and cannot continue the triathlon.

The biking segment will start on the paved highway above the Palmilla Beach towards the toll road to San Jose Airport, a 90km course that athletes will circle twice and end in the center of San Jose del Cabo. Average temperature will be around 68ºF (20ºC). For the bike segment the time limit is 10:30 hours after the race start.

The run will be mostly flat, over a 3 lap, 14km course, around the streets of downtown San Jose, with the finish line in front of City Hall. The same rules apply to the running segment with a time limit of 17 hours after the race starts.

The registration for the Ironman Los Cabos  begins on March 21st at 12:00pm central time.
