Tyler Butterfield has decided to start early on his quest to qualify for next year’s Ironman World Championships as he takes on Ironman Cozumel on Sunday 29th November 2015.

Surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, Cozumel is located 16 kilometers off the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo. Boasting the second largest barrier reef in the world, Cozumel has an international reputation as one of the premier diving destinations in the world.

The two-transition course starts with a single-loop swim in water that is teeming with tropical fish within the protected waters of the Reefs of Cozumel National Park at Chankanaab Park Beach. The 180-kilometer, three-lap bike course in Cozumel is pancake-flat, taking competitors along the spectacular coastline of beaches and resorts and through the town of San Miguel de Cozumel. The three-loop run is lined with local supporters and bands playing traditional Mexican music, creating a festival-liked atmosphere. The finish line is at the city hall square in San Miguel de Cozumel, where local residents provide support to all finishers like they were seasoned veterans of IRONMAN spectating.

Before then Tyler will be back in Bermuda for the Bermuda Triathlon Association’s Prize Giving Dinner and to visit family and friends.
