This information should be entered into the box provided when registering online to qualify. Any athlete not supplying this information on their application by the closing date for registration will not be considered for select. 

Please do not register for this event without a performance to submit at the time of registering. Once you have obtained a performance you would like to submit for qualification you can then register for this event.

To be eligible for a qualifying place all athletes will be required to have completed their nominated race within 115% of the winner in their age group.

  • O3 Distance;
  • Ironman; 
  • O2 Distance (Middle Distance)

As many as all 20 places can be awarded during the first selection phase if sufficient numbers apply and meet the qualification criteria.
