Six British and Irish Athletes Gain 2016 Kona Legacy Program Spots

Yesterday IRONMAN announced the 100 age-group athletes who have earned a chance to race at the 2016 IRONMAN® World Championship through the IRONMAN® Legacy program. Of that 100, five British and one Irish athlete have been awarded spots at the 2016 World Championship.

The Legacy Program grants loyal IRONMAN competitors an opportunity to start in Kona at least once in their lifetime. One hundred Legacy winners are chosen every year. To be eligible for this year's selection:

  • athletes must have completed a minimum of 12 full-distance IRONMAN-branded races.
  • have never started the IRONMAN World Championship.
  • have completed at least one IRONMAN event in each of the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
  • be registered for an IRONMAN event in 2016.
