24 Ironman Canada Spots Up For Grabs At The Muskoka 5150

Want a chance to race at the new IRONMAN Canada venue in Whistler, BC on August 25th?

The Subaru Triathlon Series is very pleased to announce that we have 24 age group spots to give away at our Muskoka 5150 event. IRONMAN Canada has been sold out for months and this is your last chance to get to that start line. Qualified athletes must understand and follow the below procedures in order to be eligible.

Qualification Process:
Prior to race day, at least 1 spot shall be tentatively allocated to each age group category (both male and female). Final slot allocation will be determined on race day based on the number of official starters. If there are no starters in a particular Age Group, then that slot will be moved to the next calculated Age Group within the gender.

Final slot allocation shall be representative of the actual number of Age Group starters in each category in the race. For example, if 8% of the Age Group starters are Female 40-44, then 8% of the slots are allocated to the Female 40-44 category.

NEW! We will be asking all athletes wanting to qualify for an IRONMAN spot to add their name and age group to our IRONMAN qualification board during the on-site registration process. This will help us determine before the race, how much competition per spot there is or how many spots may need to go to rolldown etc. The board will be highly visible during the registration process. Please be sure to add your name under the correct age group.

Athletes must come prepared to accept at the award ceremony.
  1. 1-Athletes MUST claim their slot in-person immediately after the Muskoka 5150 award ceremony. 
  2. All athletes must have cash, traveler's cheques or a cheque for the full payment of $700 CDN or the spot will be forfeited. We can accept credit card payment however there will be a service fee of $25 applied.
If an age group that was designated a spot does not accept it then that spot will go to "Rolldown" in order of fairness. 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.
