Just six months after the devastation of Hurricane Maria, the Puerto Rican triathlon community and race organizers rallied to pull off the eighth annual Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico triathlon.

Damage and debris still litter the course, clean up efforts in the surrounding areas (including the harder-to-reach mountain communities) are still underway, and hotels continue to be filled with FEMA workers and displaced residents. Despite the continued evidence of devastation, the fact that the race welcomed triathletes and provided for an amazing experience shows that San Juan is getting back on its feet. The race proved to be a celebration of a resilient community.

Puerto Rico’s Governor Ricardo Roselló participated in a relay team, running the 13.1 miles through Old San Juan, with the team name—PR se levanta—Puerto Rico Rises!

With an all age-group field this year, 24-year old American Nick Marcantonio was the fastest racer on the day, with 41-year old Canadian Sharon Styles proving to be the fastest female.
