Mike Reilly to Announce IMNC

Mike Reilly at IMNC

If you don’t know Mike Reilly, you’ve probably never heard the phrase, “You are an Ironman.”  Mike is the most well known of the IRONMAN announcers and he coined that phrase.  For all I know, it may be under copyright protection!  Many triathletes dream of the day they hear those words as they cross the finish line of an IRONMAN race.  And many dream of hearing those words come from Mike himself.

This year, he will announce at IRONMAN North Carolina, formerly called Beach2Battleship, on October 22, 2016.


I contacted Mike, and he agreed to do an interview with me while he’s here in Wilmington for IMNC.   I’ll know more about the interview schedule after Mike finishes announcing at Kona.

If any readers have questions they’d like to put to Mike, let me know in the comments or by email ( ).
