This year's much-anticipated NBC Ironman show will air Saturday, October 27th. Want to get together and have a watch party? Who's in?

Us tri geeks usually have to wait until December to watch the NBC’s now famous recap of the biggest race in triathlon, the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii. This year, the show has been bumped earlier, allowing fans still riding the wave of the Big Island battle to get their fix much earlier. This year, the Ironman World Championship show will visually unlock the fiercely competitive culture of this world-class sporting event. Taking viewers on an “all access” experience behind the emotion, physical demands, and polarizing competition that unfolds on the Big Island of Hawaii, the show tells a story that can only be told by the athletes themselves.

The first part of this two-part show focuses on race week, setting the scene and establishing key contenders from both the elite and age-group fields. From the moment athletes touch down in Kailua-Kona, the logistics, mind games, and final physical preparations will be highlighted. This year, a camera crew was embedded with a handful of pro and elite age-group athletes, brining the viewer even closer to the action. The second part of the show focuses on race day, capturing the heat of the battle itself.
