Always Up-to-date Kona 2018 Startlist

2018 Kona Rating Report Title ThumbAfter the July Kona slots have been finalized, here is the preliminary start list for Kona 2018. There will be a few more additions when the August slots are decided, and there can still be some rolldowns. I will update this list after the August cutoff and if any slots are declined or athletes announce that they won’t start. I will also update the list once Ironman assigns bib numbers. For now the lists are sorted in alphabetical order.

I am going to provide a lot more details on the race and the participants in my free “Kona Rating Report” which you can already pre-order at https://gum.co/Kona2018 (donations welcome).

Injury List

In early July, Terenzo Bozzone was in an accident and severely injured. He’s had surgery to repair a broken cheekbone and by early August is slowly easing back into training. He has accepted his July slot, and I’m sure he’ll evaluate where he is at the end of August to make a final decision whether to race in Kona or not.
