The Ironman Hawai’i team will continue its monthly community talk-story sessions this week.
The team’s next Talk Story with Ironman meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 15, at the Courtyard by Marriot King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel Ballroom. Free parking is available for everyone attending the event.
The talk-story sessions are meant to engage and inform the Kailua-Kona community about the first-ever two-day Ironman World Championship race, which is slated for Oct. 6 and 8. The monthly talks are an opportunity to learn about the iconic race and a chance to ask questions about the upcoming event, including road closures and race week logistics. There also are Ironman giveaways.
Following a three-year hiatus, the 2022 Ironman competition returns to Kailua-Kona. With an expected field of nearly 5,000 athletes, the largest in the event’s history, the woman’s professional field and age groups will race on Oct. 6 and professional men’s race and majority of age groups will race Oct. 8.
