Perhaps the most compelling aspect of Ironman Hawaii - other than the race itself - is the environment in which the event takes place. Hawaii is undoubtedly a beautiful group of islands, and we have done a little bit of work showing off the natural wonders of this place. Here's another gallery dedicated exclusively to giving readers some perspective on what this place has to offer. Note that these images come from different islands, including Maui and Kauai. They aren't exclusive to the Big Island on which the race is run. We're delighted to bring you this gallery from the talented eye of C.J.Photo, commissioned and published exclusively here for TriRig.
