MEDIA RELEASE

Applications currently are being accepted for the lottery slots for the 2009 Ironman World Championship.

Triathletes interested in earning a place through the lottery must apply by Feb. 28, with winning entries to be announced April 15. The 2009 race is slated for Oct. 10.

A vision of Ironman founder, John Collins, the lottery began in 1983 as a way to provide athletes of all abilities the opportunity to qualify for the triathlon. The lottery awards 150 domestic, 50 international and five physically challenged slots – chosen randomly from more than 7,000 entries. 

Participants gain entry into the Ford Ironman World Championship one of three ways: by qualifying at one of more than 20 events held worldwide; by winning a slot through Ironman’s charitable eBay Auction; or by being selected in the lottery. 

Recognized as one of the most in-demand athletic events in the world, nearly 60,000 athletes vie for one of 1,800 coveted slots to the Ford Ironman World Championship.
