Triathlons in Panama City Beach
Are you ready to run, bike, swim, and then relax at Holiday Inn Resort Panama City Beach? Fitness enthusiasts love the mild weather here in Panama City Beach and the fact that there are two major triathlons that take place here each year. Triathletes and spectators alike all love the rigorous IRONMAN Florida Triathlon on Panama City Beach as the area offers a beautiful seashore and perfect temperatures, making this race a magnet for triathletes and their families.
Each year, there is an IRONMAN Triathlon around May and another around November. Both events take place when the temperatures are a bit milder than the heart of the summer. These shoulder seasons are great times to visit Northwest Florida as the crowds are much smaller than in the summer and the beaches remain as stunningly beautiful as ever. Athletes congregate on the beautiful beaches from all over the world to participate in this great competition, and the city of Panama City Beach welcomes them with tons of cheers as they watch these skilled and dedicated triathletes complete the course.
Not only do the local residents cheer on the athletes, the Holiday Inn Resort does all that they can to ensure their athletic guests have the best stay possible, so they can perform their best in the race. Triathletes love the location of the resort – as well as the amenities! While most people love this resort because it’s beachside and offers great views, during the days leading up to the triathlon, the resort’s fitness center, large lagoon-style pool, and on-site restaurants are even more popular than usual with athletes. The restaurants all know the athletes are preparing for the big race and plan very special carb and protein-filled meals to fuel them for the main event.
Whether you’re participating in the event, cheering on a loved one, or just enjoy great beach weather, the fall is a great time to visit Panama City Beach.
