Photographer Paul Phillips travels around the world to capture triathletes in action and, after traveling to Ironman Lanzarote a couple of weeks ago, calls the race one to put on your bucket list. “Ironman Lanzarote turned out to be the combination of attributes of all of the best events I have been to over the last 15 years,” he wrote in a blog. “Lanzarote has the volcanic Island and black sand beaches of Kona, the mountainous bike course of Zell am See in the Alps, the welcoming celebratory atmosphere of Roth and crowds of Hamburg! Really it has it all.”
Here he shares images of Club La Santa, the local training center/resort and race sponsor, as well as more highlights from the professional race.
