Huggo's Restaurant & K-Swiss Bid a Fond Aloha to the 2011 Ironman World Championship
Throughout Ironman Week (October October 4 – October 9) Huggo’s restaurant was “Tri-Center” with private parties, breakast talk shows and a constant stream of triathletes competing for tables at dinner time! Capping this year’s festivities, K-Swiss hosted its 4th Annual post-race VIP Party at Huggo’s on Sunday, October 9. Vice President of Running for K-Swiss, Mike Rouse, and Huggo’s proprietor Eric welcomed a star-studded parade of guests including 2011 Champion Craig Alexander, 2nd place women’s finisher Mirinda Carfrae, 3rd place male Andreas Raelert, and other elite superstars: Chris Lieto, Norman Stadler, Terenzo Bazzone among many others. We look forward to doing it all again next year! In the meantime, we’re including some of our favorite 2011 Ironman World Championship moments in the photos that follow.
