Ironman Hawaii how to enter

Hi all.

I have set myself a goal which may be impossible.

to complete the Hawaii Ironman before i reach 40 (8 years away).

but have found out you can't apply for the Hawaii Ironman you need to be invited.

so how can i get to the stage were i can be invited.

PS i am a complet newbie.

All suggestions welcome[:)]

    Check the Ironman website for the list of qualifying events, but essentially, you would need to be in the top 1-3 of your age group in a qualifying Half Ironman or Full Ironman. Or there is the very small chance that you get picked from the lottery entry scheme.

    Its not the hardest Ironman in the world just because its difficult to complete, but because its very hard to enter!

    yeah i have a similar ambition to yourself, im 31 and would like to do an ironman within about 4 years... however i know for a fact i will never get the magic invite to Hawaii, so im going for the big 'ol Lanzarote ironman instead, which i believe is just as hard if not harder than Hawaii, as its really windy! .....give it some thought!!! See you there in 4 years [;)]
