KONA 2009

We want to say "Good Luck" to those racing in the "big one" this weekend over in Kona, Hawaii for the Ironman World Championship Triathlon. This is a HUGE race with the best in the world facing off for 140.6 miles of combined swimming, biking, and running. The super hot temperatures combined with the wind and hills make this one of the toughest races on the circuit - not to mention that every athlete competing has qualified as one of the top competitors in their age group.

From our area we have Shawn Burke (#849), JC Hanley-Pinto (#1640), Kevin Neal (#654), and Walter Arnold (#369). Coverage will be on-line at if you’re interested. Use their race number to track progress throughout the day.

Shawn Burke will also be carrying a prototype GPS and you can track him “live” (updated every 4 minutes) at
