50 World Ironman Triathlon Championship qualifying slots for UK Ironman in 2011.
For 2011 the exciting news is that the IRONMAN UK event will have 50 AGE GROUP QUALIFYING SLOTS for the 2011 Ford IRONMAN World Championships in Kona, Hawaii!
This increase in slots is a real testament to the growth of interest the IRONMAN UK event has been creating for the past 10 years within the UK market. These extra slots, the exciting culmination of the past 10 years of IRONMAN UK presence, will hopefully ensure that the IRONMAN UK event is the passport to getting even more Competitors across that world famous Kona Finish Line.
The slots are always calculated on the numbers of competitors entered into each age group and gender. The slots for the entire event are split proportionately using WTC rules and regulations. Using the same WTC calculations, the table below shows the number of slots each age group COULD get with this increased 50 slot allocation for 2011 – based on the 2010 Competitors. Please note that this is an example only and is NOT the slot allocation for the 2011 IRONMAN UK event. The table shows that there is a vast increase in slots in certain age groups – based on the 2010 Competitors.
IF THE UK IRONMAN 2011 HAD THE SAME NUMBER OF COMPETITORS AND SAME NUMBER IN AGE GROUP WITH 50 SLOTS FOR KONA IN 2011 THE NUMBER OF SLOTS IN EACH AGE GROUP WOULD LIKE THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLE BELOW.
