Limited additional capacity released for Europe’s most popular IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 triathlons  

The IRONMAN Group has today announced a limited release of additional race entries for 11 of the public’s favourite European races. 

Including the likes of Mainova IRONMAN European Championship Frankfurt, which has been the arena for some of the most memorable elite triathlon racing of the past few years, as well as the immensely popular IRONMAN Kalmar which has previously been voted the most recommended race globally by triathletes.  Athletes now have one more chance to join the starting line of some of triathlon’s “hall of fame” races.   

Athletes from the UK and Ireland who prefer to race close to home but weren’t quick enough to secure a spot in the big three races can now sign up to IRONMAN UK, the festival weekend of IRONMAN Ireland, Cork and the now famed IRONMAN Wales.  

Athletes who may not be ready to tackle an IRONMAN triathlon, can set their sights on IRONMAN 70.3 Kraichgau powered by KraichgauEnergie, where Jan Frodeno took the crown in 2019 with an impressive 3.53.06 in the ‘land of 1,000 hills’, or join the inaugural IRONMAN 70.3 Swansea which sold out in record time.

Declan Byrne, vice president of operations in Europe, Middle East and Africa for The IRONMAN Group, said: “Due to the huge interest we received for these races originally, and taking into account a disappointing couple of years of race cancellations, we really wanted to find a way of giving athletes the race and experience they were dreaming of this year. So, we have been working closely with the operations teams in each event country to make this happen while continuing to ensure a smooth and safe event experience.  We are excited to be re-opening these races to the public and look forward to welcoming athletes from all over the world to some of our most sought-after European races.” 

Athletes who would like to add an additional range of services to their event entry can choose from brand new custom experience options over and above general entries, which include services such as VIP parking, VIP Athlete Concierge support, hospitality for athletes and supporters, personalized medal engraving and more.”
