Don't Miss The Ford Ironman World Championship on Oct. 9th!



The most recognized endurance event in the world, The Ford Ironman World Championship, is taking place this Saturday, October 9th near the Holualoa Inn in Kona, Hawaii. Tens of thousands of triathletes attempt to qualify for this Ironman, but only 1,800 succeed. This race is to triathletes what the Tour de France is to bicyclists or the Super Bowl is to football players. Stay at the Holualoa Inn this week and watch as these athletes swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and then run 26.2 miles through ocean waves and lava covered terrain.
