Good morning to all the triathlete or future ones Smile. My name is Marco, I am new to the forum turning 47 in few months and I have a dream, finishing 5 Ironman in 5 continents by the age of 50. I do consider myself as an average normal guy but with a huge passion for triathlon. I will attend my first Ironman next year in Italy (Ironman Emilia-Romagna), anybody did it or is planning to do it? Other reason of this thread is to connect with triathlete that share the same passion and maybe have the chance to train with some of them. I am living in Krakow (Poland), so if you are in the area please drop a line and meet for some good training Smile.

Hello Marco, and welcome to the Forum Smile There are one or two people here who have links to Poland and race there sometimes, so there's a chance that you my find some useful connections here.

(As an Admin, I've edited your title, on the chance one of them may see this)

Welcome!

I'd say you need to be a master of the 5th discipline... Swim, bike, run, nutrition and FINANCE! Man, that's going to cost some serious .

Good luck with the endeavour, though - it's a great target to aim for. Do you have any races in mind?

Good luck with your challenge...

Hi Marco, I raced in Krakow last year (2016) I raced the sprint triathlon on the Saturday then the Long Xterra Triathlon on the Sunday. Brilliant events and very well organised.It was my first visit to Krakow, a beautiful city , I would definitely recommend a visit/race in Krakow.
Good luck with your 5 Ironman events.
