Registration is now available for the Ironman 70.3 Asia-Pacific Championship, which takes place on Sunday, December 5th, 2010.
The race will be held at the Laguna Phuket Resort in Phuket, Thailand. The swim will take place in two bodies of water (a section in the Andaman Sea, a beach run and a section in a lagoon), the bike will be challenging and scenic, and the two-loop flat run around the resort.
Entry is available now, with Open Division entry (no qualification requirements) limited to 600 athletes. Once Open entries are closed, entries will be available to those winning their age group at any global Ironman 70.3 event. Additionally, competitors finishing in second to fifth in their age group at any Ironman 70.3 event worldwide may enter the race as a “wild card” entrant if space is available.
Those wishing to race for Asia-Pacific Championship titles, age group awards and 2011 Foster Grant Ironman World Championship 70.3 qualifying slots can transfer their entries to the Championship Division by finishing in the top 50 percent of their age-group at any 2010 Ironman 70.3 race worldwide.
