Not for pro sports, but for the most prestigious Ironman competition.
Seems the 2011 race in Kona, HI, is set for — you guessed it — the holiest day on the Jewish calendar.
I’m not going to replicate the whole sequence of events. It’s been done quite nicely by this blogger.
Normally I go back and forth on these things, but at the risk of offending some, in this case, other than the lack of due diligence by race organizers, we live in a non-Jewish world. I would be curious as to how many Jews participate in this particular event.Would you change the date if 50 were going to take up the challenge? Forty? How about 10? See where I’m going with this?
