WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2021 POSTPONED TO FEB5 2022.
IRONMAN in conjunction with local Hawai`i officials announced yesterday that due to the continued impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic to the Island of Hawai`i, the 2021 Supersapiens IRONMAN World Championship has been rescheduled from its originally scheduled October 9, 2021 race date to February 5, 2022. Like 1982, we expect that there will be two editions of the IRONMAN World Championship in 2022 (February and October).
The pandemic has greatly impacted the Hawaiian community not only through deadly cases of COVID, but also significantly hurting the local economy due to limited tourism opportunities.
IRONMAN KONA: SOCIAL ACTION IN HAWAI.
As the impact of the pandemic was felt in our home community where IM staff and many volunteers live and work. A targeted initiative, Kahiau Together, was created alongside the IRONMAN Foundation in July 2020 to support locals who were suffering due to food insecurities.
By years end, the Kahiau Together initiative will have hosted 25 events locally, serving over 132,000 meals through the distribution of food bundles of locally sourced fresh proteins, fruits, vegetables, and starches.
An additional $30,000 in grants from the IRONMAN Foundation has been provided to non-profits feeding their communities. Those needing support can attend one of the following upcoming events:
- Wednesday, September 1 – Kamehameha Park
A Meal Fit for a Queen – Celebrating the birth month of Queen Lili`uokalani
- Monday, October 4 – Kona International Marketplace
Heroes of Hawai`i
- Monday, November 22 – Kona International Marketplace
- Monday, December 20 – Kona International Marketplace
