Aloha, anybody? This Saturday, October 12th, more than 2,000 athletes will compete for the GoPro® IRONMAN® World Championship title in Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i. This is the most intense, exciting day in the triathlon world and we will be there!

We’re bringing our grass skirts and our technology to Kona. As the Official Registration Partner and Official Global Sponsor of IRONMAN, ACTIVE Network provides global back-end support for more than 190 IRONMAN events on a single technology platform. Juggling so many different locations, languages, participants, and currencies is no small feat, and we couldn’t be happier to help IRONMAN accomplish this.

“ACTIVE Network is honored and humbled to have the trust of IRONMAN, and we’re dedicated to continually evolving our technology to support the growth of endurance events, large and small,” said Eric McCue, Vice President and General Manager, ACTIVE Network Endurance.

Plus, two of our very own employees will competing and we are all cheering them on. Go Arch Fuston and Rob Klingensmith!!

As part of the Kona craziness and excitement, we’re going to be airing our first-ever commercial online and on TV. The 30-second spot will air during the GoPro IRONMAN World Championship live webcast (www.ironman.com) on October 12, then via television broadcast during the GoPro IRONMAN World Championship NBC Special on Saturday, November 16 at 4:30 p.m ET. Check it out:

Our company loves being part of this and we are stoked to watch what goes down at Kona on Saturday. Good luck to all the athletes!
