The free report is available below for you to download.
With 82 Ironman races and 29 Kona qualifications these guys do something differently from the average Ironman athlete, in fact they do a lot of things differently
The five featured athletes are:
Former Irish Ironman record holder and 16 time Ironman finisher including qualifying for Kona 6 times and racing there 3 three times. Alan’s been on the podium twice in Kona as well as a number of times in other Ironman races. It’s worth noting that he’s an ex smoker and lost 4 stone in the lead up to his first Ironman in Austria in 2005 where he went sub 10. So far he has gone sub 10 in every Ironman he has done.

Kona Secrets: Lessons learned from over 50 Kona Qualifications.
Knowledge doesn’t produce results, action does. Just knowing how to do something doesn’t guarantee success, especially something as difficult as qualifying for Kona; you have to put in the hours. In this book I share some of the lessons I learnt between being a back-of-the-pack beginner to qualifying for the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
Owen has been one of the most consistent performers on the Irish Ironman scene for the last number of years with either 17 or 18 Ironman’s (He’s lost count) and he has qualified 7 times for Kona.
Martin has raced 13 Ironman and incredibly 6 of those were in Kona. Martin is one of the very versatile athletes able to race at both full and half Ironman distances having picked up one of his slots in the uber competitive 70.3 in Texas in 2012.
Matt has done 11 Ironman’s including three Kona’s and qualified at his first attempt. Unusual in this group who all list the bike or run as their strongest of the three disciplines is that Matt is one of the top swimmers in Ironman. Often the first age-grouper out of the swim and usually beating a number of the Pro’s in the process.
Dec played GAA (Irish football) up to under 21 age level and ran competitively in school earning himself a scholarship to Canada through his efforts. He did three Ironman before giving qualifying for Kona a crack. Since then he has racked up a whopping total of 22 Ironman including 7 Kona’s. Dec is another of the group who is equally as fast at the half distance as the full winning not only his age group in the inaugural Dublin 70.3 but taking the overall age group win beating athletes half his age.
