As a member of a TriClub or Team enrolled in the IRONMAN TriClub program, you are a valued member of our IRONMAN community. We are pleased to announce exciting new changes to our race registration process offered to TriClubs and TriClub members. These changes are:
- Early Entry to IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 events
- Priority Tiered Pricing
- 2018 Deferral Program
- 2018 Payment Plan Option
Early Entry: For years you have told us that one of the greatest benefits we can offer you as a community is early entry into our events. Specifically beginning with the event opening of IRONMAN Texas and IRONMAN Boulder (expected next week), affiliated TriClub members along with IRONMAN All World Athletes will be offered early entry to every IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 events in North America.
Priority Tiered Pricing: IRONMAN is also moving to a Tiered Pricing model based on slot inventory rather than dates. Slots at each tier are limited and once slots are sold out, the price will increase. Athletes who take advantage of the early entry offer will have “first crack” at limited Priority Tier slots, effectively providing you, as a club member, the best possible pricing tier for your race registration. Priority Tiered slots are EXTREMELY limited.
2018 IRONMAN Deferral Program: Athletes who register within the first 90 days of general entries becoming available are eligible to defer their IRONMAN entry (this is NOT offered for IRONMAN 70.3 events) into the next year’s event at no cost. All requests will be honored until 45 days out from the original event date. The deferral may only be used once. Athletes who elect to defer their entries forfeit any partial refund or insurance refund. Deferrals are only available for individual entries and not for relay teams.
2018 Payment Plan Option: Athletes who register for IRONMAN events (this is not offered for IRONMAN 70.3’s) within the first 90 days of general entries becoming available may elect to pay via a three-part payment plan. Athletes will be charged the Tier 3 price in three equal installments. To elect the payment plan, an athlete needs to register under the “Payment Plan” category during the first 90 days of general entries being available and make the initial $250 payment. Athletes will then receive instructions on when they can expect the next payment link and due dates for subsequent payments. All three payments must be completed for an athlete to race – partial payments will not be refunded or honored as race entries. Athletes electing the payment plan may also utilize the deferral option listed above once all three payments have been completed.
Notes on program changes:
IMPORTANT!! ONLY ATHLETES WHO ARE AFFILIATED WITH A TRICLUB AND OPTED INTO EMAIL COMMUNICATION WILL RECEIVE EARLY ENTRY LINKS. THESE LINKS WILL BE SENT FROM ACTIVE.COM
If you are receiving this email you already have a profile with IRONMAN.com or are affiliated with your TriClub in our system. You may have friends and fellow club members however that have not created a profile or affiliated. With our first races opening soon, we strongly suggest you get the word out to your teammates to get their profiles lined up.
A couple of links to help you get the word out:
Once an account is created it will take 24 hours for registrations, results and the TriClub drop down menu to appear. We are really excited about this new process and hope you are too! Please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
