No spam, no ads, no boring stuff. Only handpicked triathlon events & races highlights.
Discover Mayan heritage in the heart of the Yucatán while you swim, bike, and run in the beautiful Caribbean destination of Tulum. MayanMan will take triathletes through a swim in crystal clear turquoise waters, followed by a smooth, fast bike along the Mayan Riviera, and lastly, a quick out and back run towards Tankah Pueblo where athletes will run on a hard packed wide trail in the jungle finishing next to a spectacular cenote. Triathletes will have the option of doing a Sprint (.5 mile Swim - 12-mile Bike - 3.1 mile Run) and/or a Half (1.2 mile Swim - 56 mile Bike - 13.1 mile Run) Triathlon.
Top 10 reasons to do the MayanMan Triathlon:
