The IRONMAN World Championship is the triathlon equivalent of the Super Bowl. It's similar to a national holiday for many triathletes, and even people who don't compete in or follow the sport understand what Kona represents and will follow the event.
Most are familiar with the IRONMAN World Championship recap coverage on NBC, which will air Nov. 14 at 1:30 p.m. EST. If you're seeking live updates on race-day, though, we have you covered.
Complete coverage of the 2015 IRONMAN World Championship will be streamed online at IRONMAN.com on Saturday, Oct. 10. Former professional athletes and coaches will commentate the race, providing insight into race strategies and tactics. With their experience and expertise, the commentators offer lesser-known race details and explain the intricacies of the legendary course.
The pro men's field starts at 6:25 a.m. HAST/12:25 p.m. EST, and the pro women's field will start five minutes later. Live coverage begins one hour prior to the pro start.
