At least one Kona slot shall be allocated IN FULL-DISTANCE EVENTS to each five-year age-group category in which any age group athlete sends in an application, both male and female, per the age group categories listed. Ford Ironman 70.3 California has limited Kona slots available and will allocate them as fairly as possible. Be aware that some age groups may be combined for the allocation of a Kona slot at the sole discretion of the race director. PLEASE CHECK FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION ON KONA SLOT ALLOCATION AT RACE REGISTRATION.

At least one Clearwater slot shall be allocated in Ironman 70.3 events to each five-year age-group category in which any age group athlete sends in an application, both male and female, per the age group categories listed.

If there are no athletes entered in the race in a particular age group, then that slot will be moved to the largest populated age group in that same gender.

For additional age group slots, slot allocation shall be representative of the actual number of age group applicants in each category in the race. 

As an example, if 8% of the age-group applicants are females 40-44, then 8% of these slots would be allocated in the female 40-44 category.

Please note that at 10 percent of Ford Ironman World Championship slots at full-distance events are allocated to Professionals..i.e. 80 qualifying spots, eight are reserved for pros.

Note: All athletes must be present at Hawaii Registration to claim their spot!!!!!
