The Ironman Triathlon held annually in Hawaii is the most difficult one-day sporting event in the world. It starts with a 2.4-mile ocean swim, followed by 112 miles of cycling, and finally finishes with a 26.2-mile marathon. For most of the 1,500 men and women who compete in the Ironman, simply crossing the finish line amounts to a victory.
The Art of Ironman Success
How can we create certainty in an uncertain environment? How can we learn from our defeats in order to ultimately succeed? Where do we draw strength from when we want to quit? These were some of the many difficult questions Mark Allen had to answer in his seven-year journey from defeat to ultimate victory at the Hawaiian Ironman. Accompanied by compelling race footage, Allen’s presentation incorporates strategies for dealing with change and unexpected challenge, how to come back when success seems impossible, and the importance of doing the work required to become a champion.
