Mark's Top 10 Ironman Triathlon events



Top 10 events you must do before you retire or die (doing them)

The “F” word

HAWAII
Hawaii World Championships Flipping amazing. The history, the Island, the heat! If you never qualify go and watch if you never get to watch request your ashes be spread at the start. An event that is close to my heart. Don’t compare race times there to any other triathlon place in the world. Hard to qualify hard to Full fill your dreams and Finish!

ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZ
Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon Frightening. For jumping off a boat and swimming back from Alcatraz Island in Freezing cold waters, even in a wetsuit the icy waters still chills your bones.
