Kona Heat It Up Mission

Join us for the Kona Heat It Up Mission from October 5th at 12:01am PST to October 13th at 11:59pm PST. Just ride 112 miles//180 km, and run 26.2 miles//42km to complete it. These are the same distances the Zwift Academy Tri Team will be racing at the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona on October 12th. But, you can chip away at these distances throughout the challenge And all rides and runs counts, whether they’re Heat It Up specific or not. 

Enjoy awesome in-game gear unlocks along the way. Complete the mission and you might win a Grand Prize: a selection of equipment, gear, and fuel from Specialized, Wahoo, Roka, SIS, and of course Zwift too.


No. Not officially at least. If you want to include some races, more power to you. Most of these events will not be races. Some will be challenging. Others will be chill. And if the Tri Team decides to throw a race in, we’ll be sure to let you know in the event description.


Ready for a bunch of unlocks? They’re waiting for you.
