Ironman Announces Global TriClub Champions

    Posted On Jan 13 2017

      The IRONMAN TriClub program began in 2012 as a strictly North America-based venture. Today, it’s a global initiative that has grown into a community of more than 2,500 clubs and teams. This free program offers countless benefits and prizes to members including a TriClub Village at designated events, chances for priority entry to sold out events, joining our social communities, and the opportunity to compete for a coveted IRONMAN Global TriClub title.

      TriClubs by the Numbers

      Total clubs globally: 2,920

      Division I globally: 155

      Division II gobally: 170

      Division III globally: 575

      Division IV globally: 970

      Division V globally: 1,050

      Clubs are divided into five divisions according to the number of active members racing IRONMAN, IRONMAN 70.3, and 5150 races.

      • Division I: Over 300 athletes and/or nationally recognized clubs
      • Division II: 176 – 299 athletes
      • Division III: 76 – 175 athletes
      • Division IV: 26 – 75 athletes
      • Division V: Under 25 athletes

      The Endurance Nation team are 4x IRONMAN Global TriClub Division I Champions

      Using the Age Group Ranking Points system (AGR), the total available points for a full-distance IRONMAN is 5,000 points. An IRONMAN 70.3 offers 3,500 points, and the 5150 races offer 1000 points.

      AGR points are calculated based on the athlete’s race finish time behind the first finisher in his/her age group. Points continue to drop as the race time increases until the points reach a “point floor,” at which point they don’t drop any further and every athlete after this will receive the value of the “point floor.”
