A battle against some of nature’s hardest conditions: swimming 2.4 miles, cycling 112 miles and running for 26.2 miles is a huge physical and mental challenge. For all competitors of the Ironman Hawai'i their soul goal is to complete. It’s the athletes that often juggle family life, work and sport, who made the Ironman what it is today: A much desired lifestyle oozing health, fitness, discipline and reliability. Pure Passion.
