What’s in a name

The name Kona comes from the Ironman World Championship which takes place in Kona, Hawaii every October and which our founder Lee Charles completed in 2011, 2018 and 2020. In order to qualify you must gain a slot from a previous Ironman event, of which there are only a certain amount.

The competition is fiercely competitive and gaining your entry can take quite a few attempts! The Ironman involves a 3.8km swim, 180km bike and then running a marathon. The commitment and dedication applied to this goal is mirrored in our approach to work, our clients and running our company.
