IRONMAN is rolling out a few changes to the triclub program in 2018. The four changes are:
- Early Entry – Beginning with 2018 IRONMAN Texas and IRONMAN Boulder, affiliated triclub members will be offered early entry registration via registration links sent out by Active.com. (More on this below) Other selected events will be added in the coming months.
- Priority Tiered Pricing – IRONMAN will also offer Tiered Pricing based on slot inventory rather than dates for these events. 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 Deferral Program – Athletes who register for these events within the first 90 days of general entries becoming available are eligible to defer their IRONMAN entry 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.
- 2018 Payment Plan Option – Athletes who register 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.
*Only athletes who have affiliated with a triclub and have opted in to email communications will be sent early entry registration links. You’ll need to create a profile first if you have not done so already on Ironman.com. If you have a profile set up, but have not affiliated with a triclub, log in to your IRONMAN.com account, navigate to the Athlete Information section within the “Athlete Profile” tab, then look for or start typing “Saint Louis Triathlon Club” under the drop-down menu. Use the buttons below to create your profile and/or update your email communication preferences.
