Ironman Announces Global TriClub Champions
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
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.”
