Ironman 70.3 Panama Latin American Championship

In 2010, we helped secure a three-year partnership agreement with Ironman, the world's most-recognized fitness brand, BN Sports, LLC, and the government of Panama, resulting in the Ironman 70.3 Panama Latin American Championship triathlon. The event has generated tens of millions of dollars for the local economy and has gained worldwide media coverage since our inaugural race in February 2011.
