  • Description: The course will kick-off with a 1.5-mile swim in the man-made Santa Lucia River, downtown's famed waterway that meanders past historic landmarks and the chic commercial districts of Monterrey. The entire course is scattered with cultural sites as it works its way to the finish at the Mexican History Museum in the Macroplaza, one of the largest plazas in the world. Surrounded by monuments, fountains, and city and state buildings, the plaza doubles as a popular gathering spot for Monterrey residents—and, now, a spectacular finish line celebration.

    The fast 56-mile bike course starts and finishes at the Macroplaza next to the Palacio de Goberno, a rose-hued marble neoclassical building that houses the governor's offices. The two-loop run course will trace the river and wind through Fundidora Park, a vast former steel factory that has been transformed into a lauded urban green-space, before returning to the welcoming stands.
