Kona is known as the pinnacle of Ironman triathlon. Anyone who rides the Ironman bus and even those who are quite happy with their sprint distances triathlons know what Kona stands for as well as the dedication, passion and blood sweat and tears that people put into reaching the event on the remote island of Hawaii.
