The race consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and a marathon.

This is Cook’s seventh world championship and 19th Ironman.

Cook's accomplished a lot over the years, but he said overcoming a drug and alcohol addiction through fitness is what he's most proud of.

“I finished the 2009 Boston Marathon. That was my first endurance endeavor. Then did a Half Ironman later that year,” Cook said. “Just got hooked on the purpose and dedication it gave to my life and it was life-changing for me for sure.”

Along with owning a triathlon coaching business, Cook is also the owner of Peak Recover and Health Center in Manchester.
