Ok – this is awesome.
Behind the scenes of the world’s toughest and nicest triathlon, which is set to take place this weekend on the Big Island of Hawaii.
The Ultraman World Championship is unlike any other triathlon. With a unique format and history, it has fascinated, challenged and defeated the world’s fittest athletes for nearly three decades. On Friday, Nov. 29, 35 athletes will vie for the title of Ultraman World Champion by circumnavigating Hawaii’s Big Island in three days. First, they’ll swim 6.2 miles from Kailua Bay to Keahou Bay and bike 90 miles; on the second day, they’ll cycle 171.4 miles point-to-point; and on the third day, they’ll run a double marathon to wind up at the Old Kona Airport State Park.
