Who qualified for the championships in 70.3?

How do you find out what time I need to qualify for the championships in Clearwater next year? I sort of understand how it all works, but no idea of what ACTUAL time qualified this year. Their site is as vague as it gets. Any idea of how to figure that out to see what needs to be done to get there? Basically I want to know the slowest guy who qualified from Racine in the 40-44 age group, but no idea how to figure that out.

The IM site sucks.

Most of the groups have the top 1-5 or 6 qualify, the older groups have less (like 1-2), the more competitive groups have more. I've attached the top 10 from your group, but I'm assuming you know how to get to that. I can't find where they break down how many from each group qualify, although I know I've seen it *somewhere*.

Ok, so it's based on the number of entries, so the number changes. I know I've seen a form with actual numbers of qualifiers... still looking...

"At least one slot shall be allocated to each five-year age group category in which any age group athlete sends in an application, both male and female, per the age group categories listed.

If there are no athletes entered in the race in a particular age group, then that slot will be moved to the next calculated age group in that same gender.

For additional age group slots, slot allocation shall be representative of the actual number of age grouper applicants in each category in the race. As an example, if 8% of the age-group applicants are females 40-44, then 8% of these slots would be allocated in the female 40-44 category.

Please note: All athletes MUST claim their slot in-person during registration. Please check the schedule of events for registration hours."

Looks like your best option is to go here:
http://ironman.com/events/ironman70....#axzz11nFr8HoZ

Download the PDF and search for the top 10 guys to see who's going.


Nevermind. None of them are listed. I dunno.


Just go faster?

That's my plan anyways, but just curious if it was even possible to get an invite with my crappy running. I had roughly the same times in the swim and bike as the 10th place guy, but my running is killing me. The SLOWEST guy in that group did just over 7 minute miles. I have a ways to go to hit that for 13 miles.

Yeah, I looked up your times and you're really really close on the bike and swim... but the run... errr.


Not so much.

Yep. Well I walked almost the whole friggin' thing though. I figure the absolute best I can do in the run this coming year is 8 minute miles, and that is probably a stretch too. I hopefully will get faster swimming all winter, and the bike I will rock even more with a TT bike and more training on it. Top 10 is realistic, but I'm not sure how far that is from qualifying.

Well, there's 50 spots that qualify for the event total, and IIRC none of the groups, including the 35-40 which is supposedly the most competitive, had more than 6 (or was it maybe 8? I dunno, I think it was 6). I would shoot for top 5.

You could also look up the total number of entries, and the number of entries from your age group, and do the math from the formula above.

Also, I have no idea what happens if the top 5 who qualify all decide they don't want to go... if they then go down the list until the spots are all filled?

So I gotta knock off a cool hour from my last year's time. Nice. Only an easy 20% faster.

For the life of me, I can't figure out why you cant run.

You have long legs, you have the heart of humming bird...
Get a coach? have someone look over your gate/stride...

Its understandable to be bad swimmer, but running... there is nothing more natrual.

Hell, I will coach your running... if you find me a doppelgδnger for my swim.

Clearwater has always received a bad rap for being too flat.

To qualify for Vegas next year...you have 'til now (or 10.1.10) until August 15th, 2011 to qualify.

The longer the distance the more difficult it will be to qualify for anything with extreme variances in any of the disciplines (eg, good bike, not as good run).

Also, WTC and the Ironman brand is also starting up an Olympic distance series - 5i50. It's opening to mixed reviews but you will have much better chance to qualify at sprint or olympic distances until ur sbr disciplines level out.

Add'lly, sprint qualifiers for world championships were in quad cities this year (fyi Worlds were in Budapest/Hungary this year). Sprint and Olympic regional qualifiers for Nationals in Alabama were at Evergreen this year in August. I think these will be the same for next year as well. I'm not 100% on Alabama for next year but worlds is in Hungary again next year for sure - see edit post.

Also, xterra has a championship series which probably fits your skill set better.

Who qualified for the championships in 70.3?

Don't forget xterra has regional events too. You can qualify by points too. Even if you don't place in one event you can gain enough points to go to championships by getting enough points over several regional events. Although, I'm sorry to say you still have to put your run together! if not, more so in xterra because the terrain is so much harder.

Hans and I did evergreen with our wives this year. That's a great event worth doing. You should make it a point to do that one. Plenty of strong competition there!

Yeah I have no idea why I can't run fast for longer distances. Hopefully that will change over the course of the winter with some base miles. After all the MX riding and MTB is done, running will be a focus during the colder months. I have been doing 10 mile runs every week for the last month. That's gotta help.

Good stuff. Xterra is a possibility, but not sure what I have to do to qualify for that and how many events you have to do. That might be the kicker for me.

Good choice. It was pretty boring.
Although I'm guessing NBC will edit out the shot of Chris Lieto pissing himself when he was on the bike.

I actually find the live feeds to be much better than the nbc coverage...which will probably be broadcast in Nov or Dec. It's not as flashy (good or bad?) and has some great insight from Greg Welch, etc. The final run b/t Macca and Raelert was intriguing....even though not as much as the final few miles of the Chicago marathon today

Edit:

USAT Nationals is in Burlington, VT...not Tuscaloosa in 2011. Also, worlds is in Beijing not Budapest. Not totally convenient. Looks like I need to evaluate the gameplan for 2011. Gut is telling me it might be a 70.3 year!?!

I fell asleep and missed the Macca/Raelert battle. I was bummed I'd watched so much of it, only to miss the best part.

Agree that there was good insight though. And the clips of early IMs were awesome.

Universal Sports usually broadcasts some of the races from time to time. I've seen them broadcast them as far back as the late 90's.
