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.
