Athlete Check-In is compulsory for all participants.
Date: Saturday 16 August
Time: 10:00 – 18:00
Venue: IRONMAN Village
Note: ALL Team Relay members are required to come and collect their kits as a team, and each member needs to sign their own medical waiver.
We will select the best male and female athletes to start in the elite wave, and compete with athletes of similar abilities regardless of age group.
Athletes will be invited to join the Elite wave, based on finish times at previous IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan events (sub 4h40min for men and sub 5h15min for women). There will also be wildcard entries available.
Elite athletes will still be ranked in their respective age groups, and will be eligible for slots to the 2021 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.
Athletes who would like to be considered for a wildcard should email their recent results to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 26 July 2020.

Please look after yourself and try to stay away from the medical tent! In Bintan, heat takes on a whole new meaning: high temperatures and very high humidity. These combined puts a great deal of stress to your body and places you at greater risk of developing a heat injury.
Make sure your ticker is working at full throttle by having a check up with your local doctor. This will avoid any nasty surprises as you train and on race day. It is especially important for males aged 35 and over.
Your race hydration should begin in the days leading up to the event. Be sure to keep drinking water and electrolyte drinks for two days prior to ensure you start the race fully hydrated. Once the guns goes, a combination of water and electrolyte drinks during the race will help keep your performance up and your injury risk down. Stop at all the aid stations and cool down with a cold sponge while grabbing your chosen drinks.
If this is your first time at IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan or you have been training in a cooler and less humid place, start your race at a slower pace than you normally would. Listen to your body and let it guide you to the best race pace for you.
Check with the medical team before you take part in the race. If you have had diarrhoea or vomiting recently, this would have resulted in loss of fluid and electrolytes, so ensure to replace these before you head to the transition area to set up for the race.
Slow your pace down and even take a short break. If things don’t improve, inform a race official and head to the medical tent.
While you take care of yourself during the event, keep an eye out for any fellow participant who might not be looking too well. If you see someone stumbling, running or walking in a strange way, or someone who seems to be really struggling, please stop and ask how they are. You may be doing that person a big favour by letting a race official know or by asking for medical help.
Here’s wishing you a wonderful, healthy and safe day at IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan!
