Ironman World Championship Kailua-Kona

Ironman World Championship Kailua-Kona

Each Ironman is a MOSTPOINT reserved for a privileged few, since this is the toughest triathlon on the world. 3.86 km / 2.4 mi swimming, 180 km / 112 mi cycling and finally, a full marathon (42.2 km / 26.2 mi). All within a time limit of 17 h.

Ironman owes its origin to the US military John Collins, who in 1978 invented this competition to see which athletes excelled in each mode. In that first edition participated 15 men, of whom only 12 completed it.

The Ironman World Championship Kailua-Kona is the oldest and most prestigious in the world in which 2,000 athletes compete each edition. The starting places are awarded according to the scores and to participate it is necessary that you have been classified in at least one of the other available Ironman 

In addition to the Ironman, which is the race that will entitle you to add this luxurious MOSPOINT, there are two other modes: On the one hand the Ironman70.3, also called Half Ironman, which includes 1.9 km / 1.18 mi swim, 90 km / 55.9 mi bike and 21.1 km / 13.1 mi of running. A total of 113 km / 70.3 mi. Some of these events qualify for Hawaii. Find out more about it on the official website. And secondly the 5150Olympic Ironman created in 2011, which covers 51.5 km / 31.7 mi swim, 40 km / 24.9 mi bike and a 10 km / 6.2 mi footrace. This mode qualifies for the world Championship.

All tests are regulated by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC), which reserves 200 places in the Ironman World Championship Kailua-Kona to be awarded by a lottery system (150 for American athletes and 50 for athletes from other countries). 3000 people entrust their fate every year to this method of selection.

What else is there
If you still have forces and no waves to surf, you can discover the wonderful underwater marine life that hides caves in the translucent waters of the area, cheer with stand up paddle or climb the volcano Head Koto (with a Ladder of almost 400 m / 1,312 ft) from where you can enjoy an unforgettable panoramic view. And if you prefer something more relaxed, take a stroll through Haleiwa or go shopping in Waikiki. And of course, do not leave the island without enjoying a traditional Hawaiian dinner.

Ironmans are organized by age groups. You must participate in the race that matches with your age according to your age as of December 31 of the year of the event. We recommend you to visit the official website to check dates and venues.
