What is an Iron Man?

Also known as the long distance triathlon, the Ironman consists of a 3.8km swim, 180km bike ride and 42.2km run – a total distance of 226.2km. Therefore, the Ironman is considered one of the toughest sports challenges there is.

The participants have to complete this route within a certain time limit in order to be called an Ironman. This challenge requires a high level of endurance, body control and mental strength. The events take place worldwide and attract thousands of participants every year.
