Saturday 12th October is the big day; the 2013 Ironman Triathlon World Championships are nearly here. "Kona", that's all you have to say, and virtually every triathlete in the world will know what you are talking about and why.

Much of that talk, of course, will revolve around the professional athletes seeking the ultimate crown of Ironman World Champion.

#GBKONA 2013 Coverage

Kona of course is much more than just the professional race. Around 2000 of the entrants will be Age Group athletes who have qualified at other Ironman / Ironman 70.3 races over the past year with for many, a Kona slot representing the culmination of a many years of triathlon dream and thousands of hours of dedicated preparation. Just making it to the start line in Hawaii can be considered a victory.

Below is the full list of representatives - Pro and Age Group - on the start line this year from Great Britain and Ireland. We wish you all well, and would like to encourage athletes and followers on Twitter to use the hashtag #GBKONA in the lead up to, during and after the big race. We've also provided, where known, links to each athletes Twitter feed and/or Website. If we've missed yours and you would like to add it in, simply email us via editor@tri247.com and we'll update it for you.

(NOTE - this list has been extracted from the official participant start list with country and related details identified and extracted from that information. Aside from a couple of known (to us) errors which we have now fixed below, if you a GBR or IRL athlete and you are NOT included in the list below, or your information is incorrect then a) apologies (but this is probably why!), and b) get in touch with us via editor@tri247.com and we'll update your data.

Many of these athletes of course will have secured their Kona spots at either Ironman Wales 2012 or Ironman UK 2013. To see what they had to do to secure them, we have the full Kona qualification listings from both races on these links: Wales 2012 | UK 2013.
