QSPORTS – The Toughman Half Iron Series has revealed its third international race, set to take place in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica on Oct. 21, 2017.

“Puerto Viejo is a small town that has a wide variety of beaches around and surrounded by lush nature,” said Toughman founder Richard Izzo. “…this makes for a great race vacation.”

Qualifiers from the Toughman Costa Rica triathlon will be able to compete in the Toughman Half Iron International Championship in New York in 2018.

“Adding the Toughman Costa Rica to our series means that athletes from Mexico, Chile and South/Central America can compete for a spot at the Toughman NY World Championship race in September,” continued Izzo.

“We continue to grow in both popularity and the number of races because we represent grass roots triathlon but with a standardized format. Athletes that register for a Toughman race know that they will get a safe, great race experience at every Toughman venue.”

The Toughman Series now has 17 events in North and South America. Learn more at
