IRONMAN World Championships 2019


All roads of triathlon lead to Kona, The Big Island of Hawaii for the 2019 IRONMAN World Championships taking place tomorrow October 12th.

With the inaugural IRONMAN Ireland taking place in Cork earlier this year there is plenty of buzz and excitement about this year’s event not least for the 22 Irish athletes toeing the start line tomorrow when the action kicks off at 5:25pm Irish time with the Pro men. Thew Pro Women will start 5:30pm followed by the age group athletes who for the first time will start according to age group and not in a mass start, they will be off from 5:55pm (Irish Time)

Getting to the start line of an IRONMAN race is no easy task, getting to the finish line is even harder. Qualifying to race with the best triathletes of the world on the biggest triathlon stage in the world is both an honour a privilege and the results of serious hard work, commitment and dedication to the sport of triathlon.

We would like to wish the 22 athletes from Ireland the very best of luck tomorrow and look forward to hearing Tales from the Big Island in weeks to come.
