VeloPress Iron War: Inside the Greatest Race Ever Run

Matt Fitzgerald

The 1989 Ironman® World Championship was the greatest race ever. Driven by one of the most intense rivalries in sport, triathlon’s dominant men Dave Scott and Mark Allen raced side by side at record pace for a grueling 139 miles. After 8 punishing hours racing Ironman’s 2.4 mile swim, 112-mile bike race, and 26.2-mile marathon, the margin of victory was a mere 58 seconds. The race became known as the Iron War and would redefine the limits of human endurance and the role of mental toughness in sports.

In Iron War, sports journalist Matt Fitzgerald writes a riveting epic about the lives of Dave Scott and Mark Allen, two men possessed by an unquenchable desire to succeed. Beyond its pulse-pounding race story, Iron War is a fascinating exploration of the mental aspects of sport. Fitzgerald reveals how Allen and Scott became such driven athletes—one a master of pure will, the other plagued by self-doubt—and drove themselves and each other toward the most awe-inspiring race in sports history.
