Kona Ironman World Championship Race 2018

The 2018 racecourse provided the challenge of tackling the ROKA 2.4-mile ocean swim in Kailua Bay, followed by the Ventum 112-mile bicycle ride along the Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway from Kailua-Kona to the turnaround in Hawi, and rounded out with a 26.2-mile HOKA ONE ONE run beginning on Ali‘i Drive-up Palani Road to the Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway, then wound by the infamous Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawai‘i Authority.

Athletes completed their journey when they crossed the historic Ali’i Drive finish line and heard Mike Reilly announce, “You are an Ironman”
