IRONMAN Wales 2019 – Stephen McCann

IRONMAN Wales September 15th 2019 Having arrived in Wales on the Wednesday before the event I had plenty of time to get in a few swims, a short run and a look at some of the bike course. Ironman had everything well organised from the registration through to the briefing so by the time race […]

IRONMAN ITALY 2019 – Kevin Derrig

I’ve thought to myself for a while that too many feckin eejits in Pulse do mad races like Ironman, and I decided that 2019 would be the year that I became one of them. First, why Italy?  There are a lot of options out there but I knew that with my wife studying part time […]

Ironman Cork – Mark Willoughby

A Long Ironman Brick in Cork After doing IM 70.3 Dun Laoghaire in 2018 I had the bug for the Ironman events. I felt after that race that I could go further. So, I started hatching a plan to do a Full Distance Ironman in 2019. My initial plan was to do Ironman Barcelona in […]
