What is ULTRAMAN?
The ULTRAMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS are an athletic odyssey of personal rediscovery; as such, they are the next step in the endurance challenge of being human. Covering a total distance of 320 miles (515 kilometers), on the big island of Hawaii, they require that each participant complete a 6.2 mile (10 K) open ocean swim, a 261.4 mile (421 K) cross-country bike ride, and a 52.4 mile (84K) ultra-marathon run.
