Begin your IRONMAN journey and star in your own 30-minute show in Quest for Kona
Once again, IRONMAN is looking for ten athletes from around the world as they embark on the path to qualifying for the most iconic single-day endurance event, the IRONMAN World Championship which takes place in Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i.
In Quest for Kona, each episode will feature one charismatic and engaging contender as they take on a specific IRONMAN qualifying event, capturing the breathtaking scenery, local culture and unique athletic challenges that each setting presents. While not every athlete may ultimately qualify, each will show that IRONMAN is about persevering, enduring and being a part of something larger than themselves, proving that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE®.
Malaysia’s Rupert Chen was featured in Quest for Kona in 2017. Rupert, an engineer by profession is also IRONMAN Asia’s ambassador, ever animatic, charming and trains with a huge multi-cultural group around Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.
Self-shot footage will be utilized to capture each person’s real-time journey as a supplement to the broadcast content. “IRONMAN: Quest for Kona” takes aspirational athletes and puts their mission front and center, inviting viewers to experience the personal highs and lows of each pursuit.
Casting for the new series of Quest for Kona is now open globally, with the first round of submission due by February 1, 2018.
