Ironman 70.3 Panama
The first Ironman in Panama will be a half-distance event (Ironman 70.3) on the 12th of February, 2012 in and around Panama City. The swim will take place in the Panama Canal, the bike portion will go downtown on the waterfront and then over the Bridge of the Americas and the run will occur on the causeway. A press release from the Ironman organizers was posted on their website (http://ironman.com/mediacenter/pressreleases/new-event-will-serve-as-latin-american-pro-championship). The text from that announcement is found here:
