About Ironman Florida in Panama City Beach


     The Ford Ironman Florida triathlon, held in Panama City Beach, Florida each November, is one of the most popular events on the Ironman schedule. The 2007 event closed to general entry in less than five hours!

     Ford Ironman Florida, which will take place for the tenth time in 2008, is well known in the triathlon community as an age-group race, and as a great race for first-time Ironman triathletes.
     Utilizing the stunning beaches of Panama City Beach, Ironman Florida offers a great opportunity for athletes to get “their feet wet” in Ironman events, and also provides a last competition before the winter season sets in.

      Panama City provides a great volunteer network, as the community has played host to the Gulf Coast Triathlon in May for the past 20 + years.
