THE ROAD TO KONA - Annual Kona Auction
Every year, more than 85,000 athletes race at IRONMAN events around the world hoping to secure entry into the IRONMAN World Championship. Only 2,500 make it to the starting line on race day. One way to race at Kona is to qualify. Another way is to win an entry through the IRONMAN Foundation’s IRONMAN World Championship Annual Kona Auction, facilitated by eBay.
To honor the vision of IRONMAN co-founders, John and Judy Collins, IRONMAN remains committed to providing athletes of all abilities a means of entry to the world’s most challenging and prestigious one-day endurance event.
UPDATE 3/14/2020: In light of current global concerns, we are postponing the annual Kona Auction and Drawing supporting the IRONMAN Foundation Community Fund and Women For Tri. Please check back for updates and thank you for your continued support.
