Triathletes and ice swimmers are incredible athletes in their respective sports. But there are a unique subset of triathletes who are also ice swimmers and vice versa. These rare athletes are known either as an Ice Ironman or an Ice Ironwoman.
The Ice Ironmen and Ice Ironwomen have completed both an Ice Mile and a full Ironman triathlon.
The initiative started by Steven Munatones with WOWSA.
They must complete their Ice Mile is an officially recognized non-wetsuit swim of one statute mile in water 5ºC (41ºF) or less under the auspices of the International Ice Swimming Association. Their Ironman Triathlon must be a full triathlon with a 3.8 km swim, 180 km ride, and a 42.2 km marathon run.
