Always Up-to-date Kona 2019 Startlist

At the end of July, most Kona Pro slots have been awarded. (There will be a few more in the August Ironman races in Tallinn, Sweden, Copenhagen and Mont Tremblant. For details about Pro qualifying and where each athlete qualified, check out the “Kona 2019 Qualifying” page. ) Here is the preliminary start list for Kona 2019. I will update this list after the upcoming races or when 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”. Please subscribe to my mailing list (see the box in the sidebar on the right hand side of the site) for updates about the report.
