Kelowna local, Mick Hewson, turns 60 this year and decided the best way to ring in the big milestone was by taking on the IRONMAN Challenge.
The IRONMAN is the world’s longest, most grueling triathlon.
It’s been running for 30 years and recently added the Whistler race to the circuit in 2013.
Hewson signed up for the Whistler race in December and has until July left to train.
Like any triathlon, the IRONMAN disciplines include swimming, biking and finishes off with a run – only all of the disciplines are much longer than standard triathlons.
