man of iron

This Sunday will be the last year our local area is to host the "Ironman" event, after many years. It's still called "Ironman" even though women compete. I guess the athletes thought "Ironperson" sounded silly. The police flyer advising about road closures says that "1500 competitors swim 3.8kms, then cycle 180.2kms and then run 42.2kms."
They're mad, aren't they?
