The IRONMAN Team has been busy reviewing the way we do things, with a focus on athlete experience, and race operations, so that when it is safe to hold races again, we can do so in a way that reduces the risk for athletes and volunteers. As a result, we have developed a summary of best practice guidelines that will be implemented at races, effective immediately.
While part of the IRONMAN event experience includes athlete services and support, every athlete should have a collection of skills to assure their personal safety while training and their ultimate success on race day. IRONMAN Master Coaches have compiled this reference material to help you be prepared to bring your best self to race day.
We believe that every IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 athlete should play a role, along with fellow athletes, staff, volunteers, and spectators, to ensure our return to racing is safe for all.As a result, we encourage you to take the Athlete Pledge and download your digital pledge badge, to represent your commitment to safe racing.
