Kona Ironman World Championship Race 2018
The 2018 race course 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”
Help Me Raise Funds for other Challenged Athletes
It’s not the number of finish lines I’ve crossed that keeps me going, it’s helping athletes of all abilities reach their own starting lines. That’s why I am passionate about working with Challenged Athletes Foundation, because CAF provides the adaptive sports equipment, training, coaching and mentoring challenged athletes need to experience the transformative power of sport. And as part of my journey to the 40th anniversary of the IRONMAN World Championships in Kona on October 13th, I hope to raise $40,000.00 for CAF! You can help get to this starting line by donating. All proceeds go to kids, adults and veterans who need equipment and mentorship to reach their athletic goals and your donation will help them get there.
FundRaising Goal - $40,000.00
Goal Progress - $18,727
