Ironman History

Many people may have heard of the Pure Energy IRONMAN brand but may not know it how came into being. Back in 1977, a group of athletes at the Oahu Perimeter Relay had a debate about which competitors were the most fit–swimmers, runners, or other types of athletes. Navy Commander John Collins and his wife, who were present, believed that the best way to settle the question was to have a race.

Their solution was a combine three races into one that would be completed in succession: the Waikiki Roughwater Swim (2.4 miles), the Around-Oahu Bike Race (112 miles), and the Honolulu Marathon (26.2 miles). They decided that the winner of this new race would be deemed the “Ironman.” This first race witnessed fifteen participants. Twelve of them finished and the winner was Gordon Haller who completed in 11 hours, 46 minutes, and 58 seconds.

Today IRONMAN is recognized as a major sports brand and is associated with athletic greatness.
