Does IRONMAN own this event?
No, the event has always been owned by Triathlon WA and at one stage was run under a license agreement while still being owned by TWA.
Will this event still have slots to the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships available?
No, unfortunately as it is no longer part of the IRONMAN series of events it is no longer a qualifying race
Is this event a WQE event?
(See TA’s website underage Group Team)
No, unfortunately not for the 2022 event. But this does change on a year-by-year basis so it could be going forward.
What level of membership do I need to register in the early bird?
Standard and Premium as it covers racing insurance.
What level of membership do I need to avoid paying a One Day Licence?
Standard and Premium. If you hold Basic membership you will need to pay the ODM.
If I register a team, do I pay multiple One Day Licences?
No as only one member of the team is on the course at any time you pay one license for the whole team.
If I register a team and am a Standard/Premium member, but the other members are not do we need to pay a One Day Licence?
Yes, you do need to pay as unfortunately its an all or nothing situation. So, either all members or not members. So, you will have to pay the ODM.
Is there a lower cost for participants now that TWA do not have to pay IRONMAN anymore?
The cost of the event has been carefully considered to reflect the standard of the event plus is not IRONMAN anymore so should not be compared.

We are just in the process of looking at Merch and it will be released in the coming weeks. Rest assured it will be fantastic with our new branding and we will be getting towels back 🙂
