Triathlon Event    Hi John, ,
Thank you for contacting!

Because we don’t know what shape you are in right now, we cannot tell you how long it will take for you to train adequately for a half or full Ironman. Check out our training resources page for more info. There are tons of books that can help you gauge where you are and get you to a triathlon starting line

Be well.
