24 IRONMAN Arizona Spots Available At The Peterborough Half!

There are 24 IRONMAN Arizona spots up for grabs at the Subaru Peterborough Half Iron distance event!

About The Peterborough Half Iron Triathlon
Located in Beavermead Park, the Peterborough Half Iron venue is truly amazing for both the athletes and the spectators. The course offers a 2 loop swim course in a quiet small lake (Little Lake). An out and back bike course with rolling terrain and a smoothly paved road. Depending on your strengths, the run can be challenging with an out and back down Crowley Line. The run is net uphill going out and net downhill coming back to the transition area.

Ironman Arizona is historically one of the fastest IRONMAN events to sell out. One of the only ways left to get a spot is to come and qualify at the Subaru Peterborough Half Iron Distance Event!

This is an awesome opportunity for those hoping to participate in a late season IRONMAN. Train all summer long with the Subaru Series and head to Arizona for November 17th!

The inaugural IRONMAN Arizona was held on April 9, 2005. In cooperation with the City of Tempe and the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community, the race quickly gained popularity. It offered a fast and flat course, and a spectator-friendly atmosphere in and around Tempe Beach Park and Tempe Town Lake. Given the desert heat, the race was moved to a much cooler November race date in 2008.
IRONMAN Arizona kicks off with a single-loop swim in Tempe Town Lake, followed by a challenging three-loop bike course through the Sonoran Desert. It finishes with a spectator-friendly run around Tempe Town Lake and Papago Park. There are 50 qualifying slots for the IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, HI.

Prior to  race day, at least one slot shall be tentatively allocated to each Age Group category (both male and female). Final Slot Allocation will be determined on race day based on the number of official starters. If there are no starters in a particular Age Group, then that slot will be moved to the next calculated Age Group within the gender. Final Slot Allocation shall be representative of the actual number of Age Group starters in each category in the race. 

Athletes MUST claim their slot in-person during the designated Slot Allocation period for the event.

All athletes must pay for their IRONMAN Arizona spot at the time they accept their spot. No exceptions.
