How does the age group slot allocation work?

  • Prior to race day, at least one slot shall be tentatively allocated to each Age Group category (both male and female). Final Slot Allocation will be determined on race day based on the number of official starters in each Age Group.
  • If there are no starters in a particular Age Group, the slots for such Age Group will be moved to the next calculated Age Group within the gender.
  • Final Slot Allocation shall be representative of the actual number of Age Group starters in each category in the race.
  • Athletes MUST claim their slot in-person during the IRONMAN World Championship Slot Allocation and Rolldown Ceremony. Please check the schedule of events for time and location.

What is Rolldown, and how does it work?

  • Slot Allocation and Rolldown will be completed together in the same ceremony for all IRONMAN events. Please check the schedule of events for time and location.
  • Anyone who wishes to claim a Rolldown slot must attend the IRONMAN World Championship Slot Allocation and Rolldown Ceremony and claim their slot in person.
  • If an automatic qualifier in an Age Group chooses not to take the slot, does not attend the IRONMAN World Championship Slot Allocation and Rolldown Ceremony, or has already qualified, the next eligible finisher in that Age Group may claim the slot that has rolled down.
  • If there are no more eligible finishers in a particular Age Group or no other finishers in attendance at the IRONMAN World Championship Slot Allocation and Rolldown Ceremony in that Age Group, that unclaimed slot will be reallocated to another Age Group within the gender based on the athletes-to-slots ratio.
  • The Age Group within the gender with the largest athletes-to-slots ratio will receive the first reallocated slot, followed by the next largest ratio receiving the second re-allocated slot (if applicable), and so on.
