IRONMAN UK: 2018 Kona Qualifiers

Chief Correspondent

Who qualified for Kona at IRONMAN UK 2018?

Earlier this week I published a review of the top age-group athletes from IRONMAN UK 2018, highlighting the fastest amateur athletes and the individual age-group champions.

That was only part of the Age-Group story however. How fast did you need to go to secure a Kona slot from the 2018 race in Bolton?

Below are the answers to that question – and for the previous six editions too. (Remembering that the race this year featured a shorter (95-mile) bike course, so comparing absolute time from year-to-year is not appropriate in this case).

The 2018 edition of IRONMAN UK had 40 Age-Group qualifying slots for the IRONMAN World Championshhips in Hawaii on Saturday 13th October, and these are the 40 athletes – plus their race times and category positions – who secured their places.
