The 2011 Ironman Lottery Program will be open for entry starting today at 12 noon EDT, and entries will close on Monday, February 28, 2011.
New for 2011, the 200 Age Group and five Physically Challenged slots will not be divided between U.S. and International athletes. Instead, all entries will have the same chance at the 200 available slots.
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 qualify for the world’s most challenging one-day endurance event.
Lottery winners will be announced on Friday, April 15, 2011, at noon EST on ironman.com.
