Ironman history...

“It all began in 1978 when 15 Marines argued over who was the strongest and fittest: swimmers, runners or cyclists. Over some drinks, they came up with the idea to put them all together in one stupendous race. On a beach in Hawaii, the marines combined several races already in existence and decided on a 3.8 km swim, a 180 km bike ride and a 42 km run. Each year, the challenge was taken up again and became known as the ‘Ironman.’”
