40 Kona Slots for 40 Years of Ironman

To celebrate 2018 being the 40th year of IRONMAN racing, we are offering 40 commemorative slots to the IRONMAN World Championship.

On February 18, 1978 on the shores of Oahu, Hawai`i, 12 amateur athletes swam, biked, and ran 140.6 miles in a single day—a feat that had never before been accomplished. They didn’t know it yet but they were pioneers; as they crossed that very first IRONMAN finish line in Kapiolani Park, they became the world’s first IRONMAN triathletes.

Their achievement would go on to launch many more races across the world, as well as a lifestyle sport and an iconic brand. It also ignited a compelling idea: That with passion and determination, ANYTHING is POSSIBLE. Finishers of IRONMAN triathlons are still known for relentlessly positive, deeply passionate, and thoroughly inspiring.

To help celebrate 40 years of IRONMAN racing across the globe, we are excited to make available 40 commemorative slots to the 2018 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i. Eligible athletes who register for any of our open 2018 IRONMAN events globally by January 14th, 2018 will be automatically entered for a chance to purchase one of these 40 commemorative slots.

To see terms and conditions for the 40 Kona slots for 40 years promotion click here. No purchase necessary to enter. 40 randomly selected eligible entrants will receive right to purchase a Kona slot.  Excludes IRONMAN 70.3 races.  Deadline for registration will be January 14, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern. 

Athletes who have already registered for a 2018 race prior to the announcement of this promotion will be automatically included.
