The IRONMAN World Championship, the most renowned and toughest Triathlon Competition over a long distance, takes place in Hawaii on a yearly basis. Around 2,500 qualified participants, both amateurs as well as professionals, start in Kailua-Kona with the 3.86 km long swimming stage in the open sea. They then ride their bikes 180 km through Hawaiian lava deserts and after that they run the marathon stage of 42.2 km mostly in the sun with no shade, with more than 30°C and high humidity. Only the strongest make it and the fastest can really be proud to call themselves the world’s best “Iron(wo)man“. For a long time IRONMAN has been listed as a brand for the event as such and also for Triathlon Equipment. Santini, an Italian producer of high quality high tech cycling clothing, as official partner of IRONMAN has developed an exquisite Triathlon IRONMAN clothing collection.
