The History of Ironman

The History of Ironman

Ironman: the name alone can make even more seasoned athletes sweat! This intense physical test of endurance and stamina is NOT for the faint of heart.  As we say in the south, if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen! Ironman has a rich history, and in its short 40-year existence has grown from 15 participants to over 2000! These participants are from all over the globe, and there are over 40 qualifying events to make it into the Ironman World Championship.
