Lanzarote Island

Our friend, Lauren, traveled to Lanzarote Island to support her partner who participates in Iron Man Triathlons. Why do you suppose Iron Man events are often held on volcanic islands? Or is it just that the two Iron Man triathlons I'm aware of occur as such.

Lanzarote Island is part of the Canary Islands, situated on their eastern-most edge, and while the Canary Islands are described as autonomous, Lanzarote Island is designated as a Spanish island. It is not clear what the existing political structure looks like and there is no mention of that in Wikipedia.
