Ken Glah Races Kona 29 Consecutive Years

This year, Endurance Sports Travel founder and 6-time IRONMAN® champion Ken Glah will attend his 29th consecutive IRONMAN World Championship in Kona.

This year was GRS's 4th year at NY and I have been with them since the beginning. Ethan had asked if I would talk for a few minutes at our team dinner on Saturday night. And yes.... bummed to be missing that as well. But I thought the least I could do was put down a few words that I would probably want to say to my GRS teammates...
