Six-time IRONMAN World Champion and USA Triathlon Hall of Fame inductee Dave Scott partners with Four Seasons Resort Hualalai to host an exclusive Evening of Champions event coinciding with the 2018 IRONMAN World Championship. On October 13, 2018, Kona will once again host the top triathletes in the world as they race in the sport’s most iconic event. Kona has been home to the IRONMAN World Championship since 1978, making this annual event a defining part of the destination.
Four Seasons Resort Hualalai has had a four year partnership with Dave Scott, who regularly hosts his signature Triathlon Training Experiences at the Resort four times each year. Scott is a legend in the sport of triathlon, and was the first person to be inducted into the Triathlon Hall of Fame. Known simply as “The Man,” Scott is recognised as one of the greatest triathletes of all time.
“Kona will always be an extraordinarily special place for me. It will always be an integral part of the sport I have loved and participated in for nearly my whole adult life. It is a place where I have come to train, compete and now coach triathletes. Four Seasons Resort Hualalai provides me with a beautiful backdrop to host our Triathlon Training Experiences, and also this special annual Evening of Champions event during the week of the IRONMAN World Championships,” states Scott.
The third annual Evening of Champions event will be held at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai on Thursday, October 11, 2018 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm and will be available to Resort guests and triathlon enthusiasts alike. Scott will welcome special guests Craig Alexander, three-time IRONMAN World Champion and Bob Babbitt, acclaimed triathlon sports reporter and Triathlon Hall of Fame inductee.
