Full Distance & Ironman Triathlons

The Ironman, 140.6, or Full-Distance triathlon is a long-format multisport event, including a 2.4 mile/3.86km swim, 112 mile/180.25km bike, and 26.2 mile/42.2km run (a full marathon to finish!). These events are a huge test of mental and physical endurance, and require serious training and commitment. The format originated in 1978 in Hawaii, where the annual championships are now held. Official Ironman branded triathlons are organised by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC). There are two official Ironman events in the UK, in Bolton and Wales, where it is possible to qualify for the world championships. At Ironman triathlons, there are cut-offs at several stages throughout the race: the swim must be completed within 2hrs 20minutes, and the bike course must be finished within 10hrs 30minutes of starting the race; you must complete the entire race within 17 hours if you want to hear the immortalising words "You are an Ironman" at the end. There are other races, such as the Outlaw triathlons, which are not official Ironman events, but are still held over the same distance and provide just as significant a challenge. These are organised by the International Triathlon Union (ITU).
