|Rank||Prize purse||Qualifying Points|
– Each Age Group has a minimum of 1 qualifying slot.
– Additional qualifying slots for an Age Group will be determined on the number of official starters in each Age Group.
– The final number of qualifying slots per Age Group will be published within 3 hours of the final flag-off and posted on the results board at the IRONMAN Village.
– If an automatic qualifier in an Age Group chooses not to take the slot, the next eligible finisher in that Age Group may claim the slot that has rolled down.
– If no one claims a qualifying slot in a particular Age Group, that unclaimed slot will be reallocated to another Age Group within the same 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.
– Athletes MUST claim their slot in-person at the qualifying race during the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship Slot Allocation and Roll-down Ceremony. Please check the event schedule for time and location of the ceremony.
– Athletes that have claimed a qualifying slot are required to sign a Condition of Entry, Release and Indemnification waiver, by which they agree and acknowledge that they have read and fully understand the Rules as adopted by WTC, and understand that they may be required to submit to a medical control urinalysis, blood, or other non-urine doping text conducted by WTC. Athletes voluntarily consent to be governed by the published rules.
– Athletes that have claimed a qualifying slot must complete their registration for the World Championships and payment of the registration fee immediately on site.
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 at 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 water sponge while grabbing your chosen drinks.
If this is your first time at IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan or 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. 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.
Even as you take care of yourself before and 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!
