THE ROAD TO KONA - Annual Kona Auction
85,000 athletes seek entry into the IRONMAN World Championship each year. 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.
