Register for the 2011 Ironman Lottery

Don't miss out on your chance to race the world's most famous triathlon. The 2011 Ironman Lottery Program will close on Monday, February 28, 2010, at 11:59 p.m. PT. All winning entries will be announced on Friday, April 15, at noon ET.

The Ford Ironman World Championship selects 200 athletes each year to participate through the Ironman Lottery. Starting in 2011, slots will not be divided between U.S. and International athletes; rather, all 200 names will be drawn from one pool for selection.

The Ford Ironman World Championship is one of the most in-demand athletic events in the world. Qualifying becomes more competitive each year, so the Ironman Lottery offers another opportunity to participate in this incredible event.

In 1990, Ironman established the Passport Club, now open to athletes worldwide. The Passport Club offers many benefits, including an increased chance of being selected through the lottery.

A mainstay in the history of the Ironman, the Ironman Lottery began in 1983 thanks to the vision of one of Ironman's founders, John Collins, as a way to provide athletes of all abilities the opportunity to be part of the world's most challenging one-day endurance event.
