How do I qualify for Kona?

That's an often asked question, with plenty of articles and websites in cyberspace dedicated to strategies on how to secure a place in the Ironman World Championship. Google is your friend here - you are free to spend hours studying strategies on how to find the best / easiest / toughest etc routes on how to secure a place. Should you choose to of course...

What we present here howver isn't a 'how to', it's 'how did they'.

This is the listing of GB female Age Groupers racing at Kona this year, with details of how and where they qualified - along with a few more stats and points of interest too.

A big thanks here goes to Russell Cox (www.CoachCox.co.uk) who provided the vast majority of the data. If you like this sort of thing, you'll love his Ironman Statistics.
