Kwaj II the Second Tour

An Ironman Triathlon is one of a series of long-distance triathlon races organized by the World Triathlon Corporation consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride and a marathon 26.2-mile run, raced in that order and without a break.

In Kwajalein, they have a modified version of the Ironman Triathlon called the Rustman Triathlon.  It’s essentially ¼ of the Ironman.

It starts with a half mile swim, 26 mile bicycle ride and a 6.25 mile run.  Kwajites look forward to and practice for this event months ahead.

The swim starts from the jetty to Emon Beach.

And finally the 6+ mile run.  Not even breathing hard.  Piece o’ cake!

Going so fast the camera couldn’t keep up.

Out of the water, find your bike…hurry!
