The current world record holder for fastest Ironman finish will not be making the start this Saturday at the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Great Britain’s Tim Don was out for a ride this morning when he was hit by car. The result of the crash was a fractured C2 vertebrae. Fortunately, Don says he will not have to have surgery, but will obviously not be able to race on Saturday.
“Hey guys, I’m in Kona A&E, just getting the finishing touches for my Kona race on Saturday, going for a new aero look. I’ve heard that’s the way to beat Jan, Sebi, and Patrick, the podium guys from last year,” he said in an Instagram post. “No, unfortunately I got hit by a car this morning, and I’ve got a fracture in my C2 vertebrae up high. The good news is I don’t have to have an operation and fly to Honolulu in a helicopter—that would have been pretty cool—no, but that’s the good news. The bad news is I’m out for the best part of five/six weeks in a brace and can’t be back. I wish everyone the best of luck. Good luck guys.”
Don is a former ITU world champion and posted a 7:40:23 finishing time at May’s Ironman South American Championship in Florianopolis, Brazil, marking the fastest official Ironman finishing time in history.

Century Tuna IRONMAN Subic Bay, Philippines is the newest race to be added to the growing Philippine triathlon scene.
About Subic Bay, Philippines
About Subic Bay, Philippines
Bounded on three sides by a mountain range, and endowed with a deep natural harbor, Subic Bay was once the home base of the U.S. naval forces in the Pacific. It was America’s largest naval installation outside the United States, until it was turned over to the Philippine government in 1992.
All that sand and sea have not gone to waste, as Subic Bay is now a premier holiday destination for visitors from all over the world. They come for its pristine beaches, first-rate amenities and friendly services. In fact the waters and beaches of Subic Bay feature attractions for all types of folks: miles of fine sand and calm waters for beach lovers and picnickers, spectacular corals and underwater fauna for divers and snorkelers, mysterious sunken wrecks for history aficionados, and even choice spots for a relaxing afternoon of fly fishing.
But there’s more to Subic Bay than sun-drenched shores. Its blessed location at the foothills of the Zambales mountain range has given it lush tracts of preserved tropical forest, which have become favorite venues for eco-tourism activities and sports events. U.S. Marines used to hone their jungle-survival skills in these mountains, trained by local indigenous people called the Aetas who have learned to live in harmony with their natural environmen
The inaugural Century Tuna IRONMAN Philippines will aim to build upon the successes of the Century Tuna IRONMAN 70.3 Subic Bay and provide athletes with a challenging, yet beautiful course to tackle. Athletes will begin their IRONMAN journey with a one-loop, 3.8km ocean swim in the calm, pristine waters of Triboa Bay, starting and finishing at ACEA Resort which will also play host to the first of the split transition areas. Once onto their bikes, athletes will head out of Subic Bay and onto the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) for a fast and flat two-loop, 180km ride which will bring riders back into the T2 at Remy Field in downtown Subic Bay. The 42.2km, two-loop marathon run will take in some of the best coastal views that the area has to offer and will be a buzz of energy with local supporters lining the streets to cheer the athletes home.
Registration is set to open on August 1, 2018 at www.ironman.com/philippines.

Foremost IRONMAN 70.3 returns to Phuket on November 27, 2016
To all Foremost IRONMAN 70.3 Thailand & IRONKIDS Thailand Participants
We are pleased to advise that we will be proceeding with our inaugural Foremost IRONMAN 70.3 Thailand and Foremost IRONKIDS after due consideration of the recent events in Thailand and the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. We at Sunrise Events and IRONMAN are very mindful and respectful of the mourning period and the Thai culture.
The direction of the Phuket Government is for all sporting events to continue yet duly mindful of the yearlong mourning period. This is aligned with the National Government’s position to continue sports and tourism activities with certain restrictions.
As such we will have to realize certain aspects of our events may be considerably subdued during this period, particularly with respect to celebration. Participants may also be asked to wear black armbands as a matter of respect.
Though there will be some adjustments in light of the circumstances, we believe this event will still very much be a world-class event.
We look forward to seeing you in Phuket in just over a month.
