Huggo’s Presents the Sights & Sounds of the 2012 Ironman World Championship!

Japan represents!

October 11, 2012, Thursday of Ironman Week always starts out with one of our all-time favorite events — the wacky & fun “Tighty Whitey Race”! And this morning was no different, more than 1,000 turned out in all forms of underwear to spoof the sparse attire of tri-athletes — initially, primarily European participants whose speedo clad bodies were seen all about town, not only training on the course. We were there to see it all…and we do mean all…and snap a few shots in case you missed it.

Hawaii Island resident Ricci, right, with her team...she's competing for her second consecuitve year!

Countdown is on…just two days to race day! All of us at Huggo’s wish all participants a safe and successful 2012 Ironman World Championship here on Hawaii Island!
