Ticket options include upgrades for tableside tastings and sommelier wine presentations.Since its launch in 2005 by CANIRAC Los Cabos Deligation, this annual foodie fest has donated its profits to various Los Cabos charities that include the Red Cross and local firefighters.

With its "Beat the Sunset" theme, the Los Cabos Marathon distinguishes itself with a Saturday 4pm start time that distracts runners by engaging them with the setting sun. The multi-distance event gears to varied preferences via a 5k, 10k, half marathon and full marathon. All routes begin at the Convention Center in Downtown Los Cabos and end at the Municipal Sports Center in San Jose del Cabo - with beautiful views of the Sea of Cortez along the way as runners hit The Corridor.
Participants and their supporters are privy to special rates at such host hotels as Hampton Inn & Suites Los Cabos, Las Palmas Hotels & Suites, Hyatt Place, Barcelo Gran Faro Los Cabos and The Cape-A Thompson Hotel.
IRONMAN Los Cabos - Oct. 29, 2017
As part of the Ford IRONMAN series, the IRONMAN Los Cabos triathlon challenges endurance addicts with a 2.4-mile swim off Palmilla Beach near historic San Jose del Cabo, a 112-mile bike trek lapping the corridor between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose and a finale 26.2-mile full marathon lapping through San Jose. The event's 70.3 IRONMAN requires half of those distances for athletes seeking a more civilized challenge.
