2.4-mile swim. 112-mile bike. 26.2-mile run
ironman® is one of the toughest and most-recognizable events in triathlon, and each October in Kona, Hawaii,
some of the best athletes in the world line up for the World Championship. Hear about it from HOKA athletes:
"Kona was one of the first races I knew of when I learned about the sport of triathlon. It represented the best of the best, and I knew I wanted to be there racing amongst them. Kona is the biggest race of the year for me, as it's the one chance to race against the best in the world all in their best shape and see where you stand."

"To succeed in Kona you have to dig deep and go to a place you may never want to visit again. It takes a lot to be able to get yourself back in a position of willingness to suffer. Why do I keep going back despite knowing the pain that awaits me? I don’t believe I have had my best race there yet. I started triathlon to find the best version of myself that I could possibly be...I still know I can be more in Kona."
