      I’m pasting a note below that we received from Ironman regarding changes to their race registration process that they are extending to athletes who affiliate with a Tri Club. Please feel free to use this thread to post questions & comments. Thanks.

        Early Entry

      For years you have told us that one of the greatest benefits we can offer you as a community is early entry into our events. Specifically beginning with the event opening of IRONMAN Texas and IRONMAN Boulder, affiliated TriClub members along with IRONMAN All World Athletes will be offered early entry to every IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 event in North America.

      IMPORTANT!! ONLY ATHLETES WHO ARE AFFILIATED WITH A TRICLUB AND OPTED INTO EMAIL COMMUNICATION WILL RECEIVE EARLY ENTRY LINKS. THESE LINKS WILL BE SENT FROM ACTIVE.COM
      It will be the responsibility of each athlete to create a profile on IRONMAN.com, select your club and opt in to email communication. Athletes who already have a profile should login and make sure that your email address and email preferences are up to date.

      · Affiliate with your club: http://ap.ironman.com/triathlon/forms/single-sign-up.aspx

      · Subscribe to email communication: http://content.ironman.com/manage-subscription

        Priority Tiered Pricing

      IRONMAN is also moving to a Tiered Pricing model based on slot inventory rather than dates. Slots at each tier are limited and once slots are sold out, the price will increase. Athletes who take advantage of the early entry offer will have “first crack” at limited Priority Tier slots, effectively providing your club members with the lowest possible entry fee for their event registration. Priority Tiered slots are extremely limited.

        2018 Deferral Program

      Athletes who register within the first 90 days of general entries becoming available are eligible to defer their entry into the next year’s event at no cost. All requests will be honored until 45 days out from the original event date. The deferral may only be used once. Athletes who elect to defer their entries forfeit any partial refund or insurance refund. Deferrals are only available for individual entries and not for relay teams.

        2018 Payment Plan Option

      Athletes who register for IRONMAN events (this is not offered for IRONMAN 70.3 races) within the first 90 days of general entries becoming available may elect to pay via a three-part payment plan. Athletes will be charged the Tier 3 price in three equal installments. To elect the payment plan, an athlete needs to register under the “Payment Plan” category during the first 90 days of general entries being available and make the initial $250 payment. Athletes will then receive instructions on when they can expect the next payment link and due dates for subsequent payments. All three payments must be completed for an athlete to race – partial payments will not be refunded or honored as race entries. Athletes electing the payment plan may also utilize the deferral option listed above once all three payments have been completed.

        I think our focus should be promoting grass root and local races. However, many of our member compete in Ironman races and may appreciate what they offering to us.
