February 22, 2023

CARTAGENA, Colombia / TAMPA, Fla. (Feb. 22, 2023) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – IRONMAN announced today the addition of the 5150™ Cartagena triathlon in the city of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia on September 17, 2023. With a beautiful colonial port with so much history to discover, athletes will have the opportunity to conquer one of the Caribbean’s most unique locations in the northwest of Colombia. General registration for the event is now open by visiting, www.ironman.com/5150-cartagena.

“Colombia is a unique place that is filled with beauty. Cartagena’s warm people, delicious food, and historical wonders create the perfect backdrop for a 5150™ triathlon. We are excited to host the second event within the IRONMAN® brand here in Cartagena; one city with two world-class events,” said Wilber Anderson, CEO of SBR Sports.

The 5150™ Cartagena triathlon will begin with a 0.9-mile (1.5 km) swim in the waters of Bahia de las Animas, before entering transition one, located at Parque de la Marina. The one-loop, 24.8-mile (40 km) bike course will take athletes through the northeast part of the city with breathtaking views of the waves crashing the shores that surround Cartagena’s historic walled city. The 6.2-mile (10 km) single-loop run course will take athletes through the walled city where runners will step back in time to the colonial years and pass through the colorful and historical architecture that makes Cartagena de Indias a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Athletes will finish their 5150 Cartagena journey in front of the Cartagena landmark Plaza de la Aduana.

This beautiful port city of Cartagena has become a must-visit destination for tourists that visit Colombia. The Caribbean waters surround the Old Town, a walled colonial fortress that has survived the test of time, with centuries-old history to discover. Beautiful colored balconies encapsulate all the charm of Spanish colonial architecture with local cuisine and charming nightlife making this experience one of a kind. The city also has a thriving hotel and tourist infrastructure, that takes this experience to the international level.

After the race, athletes and their families will be able to partake in fascinating activities such as visiting castles from another time or biking tours by the city walls. They will become enchanted by this magical city and will fall in love with Cartagena.
