This October, for the first time, I had the privilege to attend the Ironman World Championships in Kona Hawaii. Last year half the male and female pro athletes on the winning podiums used Greepers in their run shoes, and having watched this from afar I was determined to get there this year and meet as many Greeper athletes as possible!
The Ironman world championships is a qualification race so there standard is very high. Many of the GB team use Greepers as well as athletes from around the world. I was a great privilege to meet many pro athletes who use Greepers as well as many age group athletes.
I was particularly thrilled enjoy the amazing atmosphere in Kona leading up to and on race day itself. From the dawn start, the hot lava fields out on the bike course, through to the party at the finish line at night as the last athletes cross the line. An amazing experience all round!
