Celebrating 45 years of Ironman with global sweepstakes


On Saturday, February 18, Ironman will celebrate the 45th anniversary of its first triathlon event, which took place on Hawaii. In celebration of this anniversary, Ironman will be randomly selecting 45 daily prize winners as part of a global sweepstakes campaign running over the course of the week of February 13-17, which leads up to Ironman’s 45th birthday. One grand prize winner will be randomly selected on February 18 to receive a prize pack of products, services and experiences including a 2023 and 2024 Ironman or Ironman 70.3 triathlon entry.

“While we have come a long way since 1978, we still strive to bring the same fearless spirit that the athletes who took on the first Ironman race brought to the start line that day on O’ahu,” said Suzanne Cohen, Chief Marketing Officer of The Ironman Group.

“This is an important day in our company’s history, and we want to continue to recognize the amazing individuals who have played an important part in our 45-year history. In doing so we also want to reward our dedicated and passionate athletes who create the countless unforgettable moments that continue to tell the IM story.”

To celebrate the occasion, IRONMAN will be hosting a sweepstakes featuring daily prizes from Monday, Feb. 13 through Friday, 17, 2023.
