Perspectives: Kona Qualifying

Triathlon Coach, Luis Vargas discusses his list on what it takes to qualify for Kona… What does it take to get to get an age group qualifying spot for the Hawaii Ironman? This is a common question from athletes that signed up to be coached.

Although we constantly refer to Kona “Age Groupers”, Luis Vargas points out that when it comes to the Ironman World Championships, these qualifiers (especially the younger ones), are at a level just slightly below the professionals.  Strength in at least two out three sports, exceptionally strong in one sport, experience, and incredible desire and passion are all common traits for the Kona qualifier.
