Take that Ironman!
The pride of the Kitsap Peninsula, Beth Brewster, is about to embark on the race of her life. The owner of Kingston Adventures in Kingston, Wash. was recently invited as one of 40 participants worldwide to participate in the Ultraman World Championships Nov. 29-Dec. 1 on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Covering a total distance of 320 miles, the race disciplines include a 6.2-mile ocean swim, a 261.4-mile bike ride and a 52.4-mile run. Compare to the Ironman distances of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike and 26.-2 mile run. The record for this race is 21 hours, 41 minutes and 22 seconds in the men’s race, and 24 hours, 7 minutes and 11 seconds for the women.
Brewster is the first athlete from Washington state to be invited to participate in the Ultraman.
Stop by and visit Brewster at her shop, which rents and sells kayaks, SUPs and bikes, just up the hill from the Edmonds/Kingston Ferry dock. That is, if she’s not out training! (Editor’s Note: Watch for our feature article on Brewster in our November/December edition of Outdoors NW.)
