Harry Wiltshire looks ahead to Kona 2017

#GBKona 2017 – Pre-race with British Pro, Harry Wiltshire

2017 has been an eventful year for last years Kona swim leader, Harry Wiltshire. I sat down with him on Friday at the Lava Java in Kona to reflect on a year that didn’t exactly go to plan – but one that he feels has left him in great shape, one week out from the 2017 IRONMAN World Championship.

Simon Ward: Kona 2017 update #3

Simon Ward’s ‘100 Day to Kona’ continues

Set for Saturday 14th October, the 2017 IRONMAN World Championships in Kona is fast approaching. A frequent visitor to the island over the years through work, Simon will be racing for the first time this year.

His preparations for the event have involved more than just a pure focus on absolute performance. Life – in particular the recent death of his best friend – put lots of things into perspective, and lead to a recent ‘road trip’ in the USA.

The best preparation for an Ironman? Almost certainly not – but Simon explains why he is content with his decision
