Just curious.....  has anyone ever attempted to do all IM sanctioned
races in one year, or 12 calender months...  I remember last year Joe
Bonnes (sp?) doing Hawaii, Xterra and Florida in last part of season....

I suppose you'd need help from the WTC as the question of qualification etc
would be important.

Well, if it was like this year, it would be impossible as two of the Ironman
sanctioned races, Ironman California and Ironman Lanzarote, happened on the
same day. I'm not sure if Lanzarote and Cali happen again on the same date next
year.

Then there is this question on being good enough to qualify for IMH...

A Patent Agent from Silicon valley did all the Ironman's a few years
ago before they added South Africa etc.  He qualified for Ironman at
IM Brazil.

I seem to remember back in '93 or '94 an Ironman series, back then there
we're probably only 5,6, or 7 Ironman races worldwide, licensed by WTC and I
recall Scott Tinley won the series. I don't remember if he actually
completed all of the races or the majority of the races.

Cheers, Glenn

I recall a series of articles on (I believe) xtri.com last year
chronicling the adventures of a guy who was attempting to do all the IM
(tm) races in a single year. Don't remember his name, though . . .

ps. I stopped in to the NG to see what was going on and can see that
ILJ has gotten the off-season flamewars off to an early start. Is
everybody really that endorphin-deprived already?

No, that would have been an article in Inside Tri about the guy in
Hawaii who set the record for doing the most IM-distance (note the
difference) races in one year.  He did Ultraman and some Deca-IM race.
Just back from Kona and a friend of mine who lives in HI and knows the
guy was telling us about this guy on Friday night.

He's name is Mike Schiff, he did all the IronMan races in 98.
There's an article on Xtri: http://www.xtri.com/1998/98imhi-agd.asp

A French man (I think it's Joel Steve but i'm not that sure) did the same a
few years back, when there were only six or seven IM, the same he also raced
the EmbrunMan (IM distance) and Nice Triathlon.
