The legendary Ironman is happening again for it’s 36th year! It just so happens to be the only time alcohol is accepted on the beach all year. The Hermosa Ironman consists of a mile-long run on the beach, a mile-long paddle in the ocean and you pound a 6-pack of beer immediately after getting out of water. As you can imagine, this is quite the spectacle and is a tradition held close to the hearts of the locals. This is also the perfect kick-off to the 4th of July celebrations in Hermosa Beach that tend to consist of plenty of booze, partying, and the scantily-clad strategically wearing tassels and pasties. All very patriotic of course! The action starts at 11 am and you must be 21 and over to participate. You must provide your own surfboard and 6-pack. See you there!
