Today some of the world’s top athletes gather in Da Nang for the second undertaking of the famously grueling Ironman race in the city. The race starts with a 1.9km ocean swim kicking off in the clear waters of My Khe beach. Competitors then traverse the winding mountain paths of the Son Tra Peninsula on bicycles for a full 90km. This intense loop finishes with 21km run from the base of Son Tra to the peaks of Marble Mountain as the day draws toward a close.
The race is truly something to behold. These men and women have dedicated themselves to maintaining top physical condition to compete in one of the world’s most difficult physical challenges in one of the world’s most beautiful cities.
