Hawaii Ironman Kona, Where to watch the World Championships

where to watch kona 2017

We run through where to watch The World Championships at the Hawaii Ironman in Kona, the start times, and some of the British competitors to look out for.

Live coverage of the Hawaii Ironman will be broadcast in the UK exclusively on the RedBull TV streaming service, starting 5:15pm UK time (7:15 am in Hawaii) on Saturday October 14th.

This year’s hosts haven’t been announced yet, but lets hope they are a little bit more dynamic than last time.

The Elite men start their swim at 5.35pm UK time, with the Elite women setting off five minutes later.

While the majority of coverage will be of the elite competition, some time will be reserved for age groupers with the men’s race starting at 6:05pm, and women’s at 6:20pm UK time.

To help you keep track of friends, family, and club mates Ironman provide their athlete tracker, updated for last year’s race. Each competitor will record multiple split times for their bike, run, and transitions; so you can keep track of their progress throughout the race.

Don’t worry if you miss the race on Saturday as a catchup service will be available on Ironmanlive.com. This will also give you the option to skip backwards and forwards through the highlights. It is, after all, a very long race.

The sad news ahead of this weekend’s race is that the top seeded male UK competitor and favourite for a top ten finish, Tim Don, is out of the race after being hit by a car during training.

Full starting lists for the professional events are available here.

About this author:
I wasn’t given the choice as to whether or not I wanted to get into cycling. My family bike shop (Leedham’s Leicester) was founded in the 1850’s, and to avoid bringing dishonour to my ancestors, took up the two wheels out of reluctant duty. That said I do head out for the odd spin and know rather a lot about bikes.

I take care of YJ’s digital marketing among other things. Ever noticed those ads that seem to follow you round the internet and all over Facebook? Yep, I’m that guy.
