The Ironwar: 30 years on

Thirty years ago, at the Ironman World Championships, Dave Scott and Mark Allen had an epic battle. Most people know the peripheral story, but no one knows the details of each of their lives in the year-long buildup to this race, or the real race story.

In recognition of the 30th anniversary of the historic race, Dave Scott and Mark Allen have collaborated on a series of ten stories with a new story released every Thursday morning on the 1989TheStory website.

The series will conclude in Kona on Thursday 10th October with an exclusive live event. 6x IRONMAN World Champion Dave Scott and 6x IRONMAN World Champion Mark Allen discuss the greatest race of all time, plus Kona rookie and two-time Olympic Gold medalist Alistair Brownlee gives his thoughts.
