Since its inception in 2006, the IRONMAN® 70.3 Series is the fastest growing triathlon series in the world. There are many events around the world that qualify athletes for the Ironman World Championship 70.3 each September.
The 2017 City Bikes IRONMAN® 70.3 Miami will qualify 30 athletes for the 2018 IRONMAN® World Championship 70.3 where 2,000 domestic and international competitors will compete by qualifying at an IRONMAN® 70.3 event. Beginning in 2015 the IRONMAN® 70.3 World Championship will rotate locations yearly.
Slot Allocation Policy:
At least one slot shall be allocated to each five-year age group category in which any age group athlete sends in an application, both male and female, per the age group categories listed above. If there are no athletes entered in the race in a particular age group, then that slot will be moved to the largest starting populated age group in that same gender. For additional age group slots, slot allocation shall be representative of the actual number of age grouper applicants in each category in the race. As an example, if 8% of the age-group applicants are females 40-44, then 8% of these slots would be allocated in the female 40-44 category. Since the largest populated age group is dependent upon the number of starters, not the number of entrants, the distribution of slots could change after the race has begun.
Athletes must be present at the awards ceremony to claim their slots. You must bring a photo ID and credit card for the 70.3 World Championship entry fee ($425.00 USD – cash or checks will NOT be accepted). Further details will be provided concerning the slot winners prior to the race and at the awards ceremony.
